Groundbreaking planned for new Sullivan Co. restaurant

Kat-A-Korner Diner Fire

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Those who have been missing Kat-A-Korner restaurant in Sullivan may be in luck.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Tuesday for a new restaurant at the same location, according to Fred Richey.

Kat-A-Korner Diner served the community for more than 80 years when it burned down last November. Investigators believe the fire started in the kitchen and spread.

The diner had been at that same location on the corner of Section Street and State Road 54 since 1933.

The Sullivan County Museum even paid tribute to the restaurant earlier this year with a special display including several old photographs and even a menu.

Richey said the building will be new but much of the restaurant will be the same.
