It's been just over a year since we shared the exciting news about a new business moving into the former Hardee's location on Highway 41 North in Evansville. Now, we have a better idea of how the property has changed, and when we can expect it to be open for business.

This slightly grainy screenshot is from Google Maps in 2016 when Hardee's was still in business. The restaurant closed for good in November of 2018, and it has been vacant every since.

Empty Too Long

This Evansville location of Hardee's has been closed for four years, but it was purchased by GNE LLC High Spirits  - Wine Beer & Spirits in 2021. I drive past this location nearly every day, and I know that there has been a lot of work put into the total remodel.
