A Culver’s Restaurant is the latest addition to the Beaumont development north of County Road 466A across from Pinellas Plaza.
Special Magistrate Lindsay C.T. Holt on Tuesday recommended city commission approval of a site plan for the restaurant at a meeting of the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board.
The 4,874-square-foot restaurant will be built at the northwest corner of CR 466A and Pinellas Place.
It will have 45 parking spaces, a drive-up window and seating for 104 customers on about 1¼ acres.
The restaurant will be the second Culver’s in The Villages area. The other is on Wedgewood Lane at Southern Trace Plaza. It opened in 2018.
Known for its butter burgers and frozen custard, the first Culver’s was founded in 1984 in Sauk City, Wis., by Craig and Lea Culver.
The company now has about 4,300 franchise restaurants in the United States and Canada. Culver’s was second in sales growth last year among the nation’s 10 largest burger restaurant chains.
