CROWN POINT | Family dining chain Culver's is proposing a restaurant at Summit Street and Broadway in Crown Point.

Restaurant representatives on Monday will seek Crown Point Plan Commission approval of a site plan proposed for the location in the Crown Village commercial development.

The chain known for its signature burgers and frozen custard plans a 4,200-square-foot restaurant in an out lot of the development, according to plans submitted to the city.

Parking for 67 is planned.

Food and beverages but no alcohol would be served at the restaurant.

Fred Terpstra, who owns Culver's restaurants in Merrillville, Highland and Lansing, is proposing the restaurant in Crown Point, city officials said.

City officials talked with Culver's owners in May while attending a retailers convention in Las Vegas, Mayor David Uran said.

"We had a great discussion about Crown Point," Uran said of talks that took place at International Council of Shopping Centers Global Retail Real Estate Convention.

The Culver's chain "loved the fact that Crown Point is a family-oriented community," Uran said. "Their mission statement matches our mantra."

The proposed location for the restaurant is on a vacant lot within a commercial strip that includes Buffalo Wild Wings and Beggars Pizza as well as Summit Athletics, an AT&T store and other retailers.

Crown Village is on the northwest corner of Summit Street and Broadway.
