WAUKESHA — Since 1984, Wisconsinites have been enamored
with Culver’s butter burgers and custard — but now it
turns out so is much of the nation.
A recent report from Restaurant Business of America’s
Favorite Quick-Service Chains showed that Culver’s was
the top burger joint.
At No. 1 for the quick-service restaurants was Chickfil-
A, which got a 75.4 percent for service/hospitality,
61.9 percent for ambiance/ appearance, 60.8 percent for
food/beverage, 69.5 percent for takeout/convenience and
56.2 percent for value. Its overall score was 62.9
Coming in at No. 2 was Tropical Smoothie Cafe with an
overall score of 58.4 percent.
Culver’s, at No. 3, had an overall rating of 56.7
percent. It was given a 71 percent for
service/hospitality, 55.5 percent for ambiance/
appearance, 56.4 percent for food/beverage, 64.5 percent
for takeout/convenience and 43.3 percent for value.
In-N-Out Burger, another famous chain, got a 56.3
percent as an overall score, followed by Papa Murphy at
No. 5 with an overall score of 56.2 percent.
“As proof that sales don’t always equate to consumer
preference, only one of the 10 largest chains by sales
made this list: Chick-fil-A,” reads the report.
The first Culver’s opened in Sauk City.
