What's the new building going up east of the Subway Restaurant on U.S. 40? There's been a lot of speculation about the big brick structure for the past few months. Rumors covered everything from Applebee's to Burger King.
Lately, a lot of people said it's going to be a new Subway. And those people would be right. Partly.
Owners of the building are Darrell Furr, of Rockville, and Andy Ogle, of Columbus, Ind.
The entrepreneurs said the structure could house up to four different businesses. One will be a new 2,250 square-foot Subway Restaurant in the front northwest section that can seat 70-plus diners.
The remaining 3,600 square feet is available for lease. It can be rented as three 1,200-square foot sections, one 1,200-square foot and one 2,400-square foot section or as one 3,600-square foot section, depending on the potential tenant's wants and needs.
Furr and Ogle also own Subways in Sullivan and Farmersburg and two strip malls in Sullivan and Columbus. Furr said they needed more parking space and more seating capacity at the current Subway in Brazil so decided to add to their portfolio by constructing the large, multi-business building.
The old Subway Restaurant structure will also be available for rent after the business is relocated to the new building.
"We anticipate opening in the new facility Aug. 1," Furr said.
When asked if he had any tenants for the remaining space, Furr said, "No. We're negotiating with some prospects but nothing definite."
