Wisconsin-based Chain Features Great Food, Services and Hospitality
The Midwest-based Culver’s restaurant chain is coming to North Carolina. Ground has already been broken in Arden, approximately 10 miles south of Asheville and should be open in early 2016. A restaurant is also planned for the Charlotte area (University City) sometime in the spring of 2016. Others are in the very early planning stages.
Culver’s is an expanding fast-casual franchise chain with over 550 independently owned and operated restaurants in 22 states. North Carolina will be the chain’s 23rd. The restaurants’ award-winning customer service is based on small-town, Midwestern values, genuine friendliness and an unwavering commitment to quality and cleanliness. Signature items include the ButterBurger, (from the lightly buttered bun) made from fresh, never frozen U.S. beef, and fresh Frozen Custard, including the famous Flavor of the Day program.
“Culver’s has been a long-time favorite of our family, says Arden franchisee Dan Schulze. My wife and I, along with our three children, first dined at a Culver’s Restaurant back in the 80’s when we were visiting family and friends in a small town in Wisconsin. We’re thrilled to bring this exceptional restaurant to the people of western North Carolina.”
The roots of Culver’s can be found in a small southern Wisconsin community of Sauk City. Thirty-one years ago, the Craig Culver and his family opened their first restaurant surrounded by farms that produced the dairy products and grew the food. Restaurants had been a way of life for the Culver’s, previously owning and running several supper clubs. In 1984 they converted a former A&W root beer stand and christened it “Culver’s Frozen Custard and ButterBurgers.” Today this organization is passionate about providing, great service, great-tasting, hand-crafted, cooked-to-order-food and an environment that is genuine and respectful of team members and guests. Then, as now, the Culver’s chose to use only the freshest ingredients, prepared each meal exactly to a guest’s order and delivered it to their table with a welcoming smile.
