The drive-in's owner, Darrell Orth, said it was important for him to rebuild after the accident because the restaurant means a lot to the community.

"Pete’s is an icon. It’s actually one of the few icons left in Roseburg, and it would’ve been a shame to let it go to the wayside. We chose to make sure it was rebuilt, but we also chose to make sure we rebuilt it in a way that it’s still Pete’s Drive-In.”

Due to construction constraints, the reopening has been pushed back a few times. However, Pete's Drive-In is expecting to reopen its doors July 8.
