WESLEY CHAPEL — After 16 years of owning a Culver's in Wautoma, Wisc., Marty Roeske has traded his snow shovel for flip-flops. On Feb. 29, Roeske opened Culver's in Wesley Chapel, at 2303 Sun Vista Drive next to the Tampa Premium Outlets.

"It's an ideal spot," said Roeske, owner and operator.

Roeske and his wife have been vacationing in Florida for years, and wanted to move here permanently. A year and a half ago, they moved to the area to work on the new restaurant.

"We're just so happy to be living in Wesley Chapel," said Roeske. "We love it."

The first Culver's opened in Sauk City, Wisc., in 1984, and has grown to more than 500 restaurants in 22 states. Culver's is well-known for its ButterBurgers and fresh frozen custard.

The custard is made in small batches throughout the day and comes in vanilla, chocolate, and the flavor of the day. Other treats such as shakes, malts, sundaes and Concrete Mixers are all handmade with the custard.

Culver's menu also includes grilled and crispy chicken sandwiches and tenders, and fresh salads and soups.

There will soon be other options for residents in the New Tampa/Wesley Chapel area including Cheddar's, Chick-fil-A and Panda Express. A Costco Wholesale will anchor the development.
