LAKE IN THE HILLS – Lucky Penny’s will no longer be coming to Lake in the Hills.

In May, developer Jeff Rehberger presented plans before the Village Board for the upscale sandwich shop with video gambling at 421 N. Randall Road.

The 3,200-square-foot space would have included 15 dining tables, a lounge area and a separate room for video gaming. The business also had a liquor license and planned on having a separate menu for wine and beer.

On Tuesday, Rehberger said he decided not to pursue the business, and he would not comment further on his reasons why. 

The village received a letter Feb. 2 from Rehberger that said he would no longer be pursuing construction on the space, and he requested his liquor license be relinquished. 

After the license for Lucky Penny’s had been relinquished, the Village Board voted at its Feb. 23 meeting to decrease the number of licenses issued in the village, according to meeting minutes.
