Culver's franchise partners all have one thing in common, and that's a commitment to our founding principles of freshness and quality, hospitality and service to the community. Our franchise partners are critical to Culver's success because as owner-operators they're engaged in their business every day, working side-by-side with their team, leading by example.
We're looking for franchise partners with the leadership skills to take a team of people and operate a Culver's according to our high standards. You need energy and enthusiasm. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to love people and believe, as we do, that having a great heart is also good business.
In 1984, Craig Culver and his family opened the first Culver's restaurant in Sauk City, Wisconsin, serving their signature ButterBurgers® and Fresh Frozen Custard to friends and neighbors with genuine, from-the-heart hospitality. Their sole financial goal was to support their growing family.
Since then, with a family of franchise partners who share the same uncompromising standards we've held from day one, Culver's has grown to over 890 restaurants in 26 states.
Culver's is leading the way in the industry and in our communities. If you are craving a restaurant business made to order for you, where your financial success is directly related to how well you and your team execute against Culver's mission that every guest who choses Culver's leaves happy, we invite you to consider becoming a Culver's franchisee.
