State records link the Miller Lane Property Management LLC to David Potts, who owns D&L Sales and a pair of Culver’s franchises in the Dayton area.

Potts, a Miami County native who launched the Culver’s restaurant in Troy in 2004 and added the Sidney location in 2007, told this news outlet last month that his partnership has closed on the former Ruby Tuesday.

Construction will start soon on what is expected to be the new Culver’s location closest to Dayton for the Wisconsin-based restaurant chain, known for its ButterBurgers and Fresh Frozen Custard.
