Update (10/18/2017): Plans for a Culver’s in Mandan have been approved.
Culver’s continues to scout locations for Bismarck-Mandan. KX News reports that a company spokesman confirms that plans are being worked for a local location, but won’t confirm details.
I first mentioned plans of a local Culver’s back in 2014. That location, near Hay Creek Shops, had never came to fruition, despite that Aspen Group and Woodmont Properties both marketed it as such in brochures. Whether this is still the intended location has not been confirmed.
Other likely contenders include Sunrise Town Centre or even Mandan.
