Culver Franchising System Inc.
In 1984, Craig Culver and his family bought an old A&W Root Beer stand and turned it into the first Culver’s restaurant. Their menu items were made with their own family recipes including their signature “ButterBurgers” and specialty frozen custard. Customers loved the food, and the Culvers soon started selling franchises to bring the family diner to more people. Culver’s restaurants are now a regular sight in many areas of the country and there are around 450 total locations.
