EDMONTON -- Starting in April, if you want a burger from Peters' Drive-In, you won't have to drive to Calgary — just Calgary Trail.

Construction is in the final stages for the location in the area of Calgary Trail and 51 Avenue.

The company hopes to open the drive-thru in early April and the indoor portion soon after, but a big focus will be to eat outside in the summer.

"We're doing our best to incorporate a lot of green space into the design," said Peters' Drive-In president Joanne Rowe.

The first Peters' opened in 1964 and expanded into Red Deer only five years ago, but the burger institution is well-known all the way north.

"We have lots of anecdotal evidence that points to the fact that we're recognized in Edmonton," Rowe said.
