Craig Culver and the restaurant chain bearing his last name is truly a Wisconsin success story now spanning across 24 states.  But, it wasn’t always that way. Hear Craig as he talks about the early years when too few cars were in the parking lot and there were too many doubts as to whether the little restaurant was going to survive the tough competitive landscape. Through faith, unwavering determination and a can-do attitude, Culver’s single restaurant turned into a growing franchise. In fact, today, there are nearly 600 locations. Join the conversation with Craig as he shares Culver’s recipes for success, the home runs they hit over the years and the obstacles that had to be overcome. The Culver’s story will enlighten and motivate you to be a more intentional and thoughtful leader – and you’re sure to leave with a smile on your face!

Craig’s passion for the business started over 50 years ago when his parents bought their first restaurant. Modeling his mom and dad’s command of the kitchen and gracious, midwestern hospitality, Craig grew up serving guests and learning firsthand about delicious, cooked-to-order food.

In 1984 came an idea for a restaurant no one could resist. Craig and his family opened the very first Culver’s featuring ButterBurgers and Fresh Frozen Custard in their hometown of Sauk City, Wisconsin. Then, in 1987, the franchising arm, Culver Franchising System,

Inc., was established. Shaped after the Culver family’s team approach around hospitality and great food, the first successful franchise was opened in Baraboo, Wisconsin in 1990. Today, there are nearly 600 Culver’s restaurants in 24 states.

As much as the business is about food, Craig will tell anyone who asks that Culver’s is actually a “people place.” This business philosophy fuels the way Craig coaches team members in the restaurant and beyond to always do what’s right for guests, ensuring that they leave the restaurant happy every single time.

Craig is also active in a variety of organizations. He is a member of the National & Wisconsin Restaurant Associations. He is also a board member of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Foundation, the Bank of Prairie du Sac, Kwik Trip, and the Greater Sauk County Community Foundation.
