Jasper (NNDC) – A proposed multi-use project on South Newton Street may bring a new business to Jasper.

Monday morning, the Jasper Economic Development Commission approved forming a development target area and tax abatement for locally-based SERVUS!

If all goes according to plan, the new $4.5 to $6 million dollar project will include a new roughly 4,500 square-foot building that will also house a McAlister’s Deli.

SERVUS! owns several brand franchises including Denny’s, Grandy’s, Long John Silver’s and Wendy’s. McAlister’s is the company’s newest addition. SERVUS! opened its first McAlister’s Deli in Bedford this past April. There are about 400 McAlister’s Delis in the United States, including both the Louisville and Evansville metropolitan areas.

Also included in the development is 4,500 square feet of other retail space on the first floor, SERVUS!’s new corporate headquarters on the second floor and six units of high-end loft apartments.

SERVUS! President and CEO Jasper Kelly says, “today’s Economic Development Commission meeting is the first step in a long process to bring this exciting project to life.”

Kelly goes on to say, “Having opened our first restaurant in Jasper in 1964 and our current headquarters 10 years later, this project is a continued investment in our hometown where we want to continue for the next 50 years.”

Kelly says if all goes according to plan, construction of the new building could begin as early as this fall.  It would be located on land to the west of the Los Bravos restaurant and Jasper 8 Cinema. The theater is owned by SERVUS!

Final approval on both the tax abatement and the economic development target area rests with the Jasper City Council.

The council will consider the project when it meets this Wednesday at 7pm at Jasper City Hall.

Kelly says, “We look forward to working with the Economic Development Commission, members of the City Council, the Mayor along with his team to put forth a mixed-use project that Jasper can be proud of.”
