New developments are on the horizon in Gateway Village

By  | 

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - Culvers is a Wisconsin-based fast food restaurant will make its home in the Gateway Village area off 691.

Co-founder Craig Culver explains what they serve.

"You can expect butter burgers and frozen custard! And what's a butter burger? What it is, its one of our burgers, freshly made for you, its not cooked ahead of time. We butter the bun and grill the bun is what we do," said Culver.

Restaurant owner Brad Bishop says the restaurant is expected to open in December, and is looking to fill 60 jobs.

While Culvers still has work to do to see visible progress, trampoline park Urban Air has their steel frames up, while entertainment center Hey Day is just months away from completion.

Denison Development Alliance President Tony Kaai says Hey Day will be hiring 120 people, and Urban Air will hire 80.

"We just had a construction meeting on Hey Day last week, so we're looking at mid-October for a soft opening," said Tony Kaai.

Kaai also says Urban Air is expected to open in early November.

Folks like Kylen Walker and Bevan Butler are looking forward to the day they can get entertainment closer to home.

"I think it'll be good for the community for the most part. It'll give people more to do because there's not really a lot to do around here as much," said Walker.

"It'll definitely give the kids something to do instead of having to go to Dave and Busters, drive 45 minutes to an hour," said Butler.
