[Commissioner Peter Vargulich mentions invasive species control while discussing landscaping of a proposed Wahlburgers restaurant during a meeting of the St. Charles Plan Commission on May 8.]
“We really want to make this aesthetically beautiful,” Wahlberg said.
The Wahlbergs previously had considered Chicago as a restaurant location but decided on St. Charles instead. Wahlberg said it is an ideal place for a Wahlburgers and opening a restaurant in the city would be a great source of pride for him.
“I've wanted to do this from the moment I set foot in this town,” Wahlberg said. “I'm very committed to this.”
Wahlberg and his wife, Jenny McCarthy, both celebrity entertainers, purchased a house in St. Charles two years ago.
