With 629 restaurants around the country, Culver's corporate leaders don't typically travel for a photo op every time construction begins on a new site. But Thursday was different, company CEO Joe Koss said.
"This is a pretty special day for Culver's," Koss said after a groundbreaking ceremony for the new location at 4939 W. Irving Park Road. "We've been approaching the City of Chicago for many years, but we've yet to open a restaurant here. It's a big day for us."
