Thirteen months ago, when was just a twinkle in my Twitter eye, I reported Culvers would open in Meridian.

The project was approved by Meridian’s planning zoning folks nearly a year ago. Now, the project is finally moving forward, with permits filed earlier this month with City of Meridian.

The franchisee threw a quote to the Statesman:

“We’re shooting for a June opening,” he said. “If the weather breaks soon, that might be the end of May — but that might be pushing it.”

Culvers is already open in Twin Falls – and is known across the midwest for indulgent burgers and frozen custard treats.
