Work is progressing toward a mid-February opening for the truck stop being constructed along Highway 26 just north of the Sugar Factory in Scottsbluff.
Owner and contractor Eric Reichert told KNEB News there are always little things here and there that delay construction, including weather. But he says so far there has been nothing they haven’t been able to work through.
Reichert says they are currently standing the structure of the building and getting all of the column pads set for the canopies for the diesel and gas islands.
And Reichert confirmed that Which Wich Superior Sandwiches will be opening a location inside the truck stop. “They’ve got 450 locations, they’re actually worldwide, they’ve got a couple in Mexico, and a couple in Europe,” says Reichert. “Then they’re all over Texas, 15-18 of them in the (Colorado) front range, there are a couple by Omaha and Lincoln, California and all over.”
Reichert says construction for the new restaurant will be built out at the same time as for the rest of the facility, so he’s hoping they will be able to open the same time as the truck stop.
