The steel framework for a new Sapp Bros. restaurant to be located at 2608 S. 24th St. in Council Bluffs has been erected, according to General Manager Scott Harrill, and the new facility should be open for business around the first of the year.
Harrill said the new building will be 8,228 square feet and seat about 130 patrons. It also will offer a meeting and party room, some retail space and a Caribou Coffee shop. The extensive renovation and construction project now underway at the Sapp Bros. location includes all new restroom facilities and new shower facilities.
Harrill said the old Sapp Bros. facility featured three fueling islands that faced east and west on the south side of the building.
When the renovation is completed, there will be four fueling islands which will be oriented north and south rather than east and west.
