February 28, 2021 – West Bend, WI – The conundrum of two fast food franchises and one driveway.
Neighbors in West Bend are familiar with the long line that forms in the evening (especially Friday) as folks wait in the drive thru at the popular Culver’s on W. Washington Street.
There is one entrance with traffic that often spills onto Highway 33 and eventually wraps around the building for the drive thru.
With the new Taco Bell opening at 2356 W. Washington Street, the businesses will share one driveway entrance.
The one-lane traffic pattern normally flows one direction (east) to the back of the Culver’s drive through.
The Taco Bell traffic will enter and exit the same way.
If the volume of traffic is similar to what has spilled out onto Highway 33, how will Taco Bell lovers get in or out of the restaurant.
The location used to be home to Matrix Title Co. That business operated on a standard 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. A call is being placed to the owner of Matrix Title to see if he has any recommendations.
