The Wisconsin-based not-so-fast food chain Culver's, famous for ButterBurgers, frozen custard, and deep-fried squeaky cheese, is expected to open in March 2020 on Copans Road in Margate, just east of State Road 7.
Franchise owner Eric Pierce, a native Wisconsonite who ventured to South Florida a decade ago, broke ground for the new eatery, at 5510 W. Copans Rd., earlier this summer. The Sun-Sentinel reports construction on the first Culver's in South Florida starts this week.
Pierce, a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Stout, told his alma mater's alumni publication that while the restaurant is being built, he and his management team will spend eight weeks in training in Jupiter, where Culver's opened a franchise in November 2016.
Culver's other Florida locations include Port St. Lucie, Orlando, Kissimmee, Naples, Sarasota, Tampa, and St. Petersburg.
