Culvers in Merrill

Postby Catfish » Thu Sep 10, 2009 9:52 pm

This Wednesdays Foto News from Merrill said that Culvers is making a deal to put one in at the old Burger King building right across from Pine Ridge Mobile over by Walmart of Merrill. Other franchises wanted in to Merrill but the Common Council shot them down, just like they shot down Harley to put a plant in the ITC building abandoned by Woodship Corporation. So Harley says alright then we'll build one in Tomahawk and that is where The Kaphaem Road plant came from. The Merrill business men and the others that run Merrill said they would lose there key top employees to the plant. So they lose out on all the tax Revenue Harley would have provided. So they build on Kaphaem and lost key employess anyway from these folk applying and being hired up there. They lost emplyees and tax revenue. What kind of logic is that? So now the Common Council will be voting on whether or not they would allow Culvers in. Hopefully someone wakes up and sees the value of growing the town and tax base. Come on Merrill, wake up to change. Oh the other restaurants don't want to let them in for fear of losing some business. If the town grew and more people came to town it would all come out in the wash. Culvers may even bring Tomahawk folk down to Merrill. They come now anyway for WalMart.

I'm not a huge Culver's fan, but it would be nice to see that building being used for something productive.

Well it's a done deal. We're getting a Culvers in Merrill. The Common Council had their vote and decided by a 8-0 vote it was a yea, they're letting them in. So now the empty building is going to be used and we'll have another choice for food on the run. They're putting somewhere about $1.2 to $1.6 million dollars to bring the building and contents up to the Culvers standards. They're putting upwards of $600,000 into the structure redesign and upwards of $400,000 in equipment and furnishings. I don't recall when they anticipate the completion and opening. I'll have two Butter burgers please!
