PRAIRIE DU SAC — The stretch of
the Culver’s restaurant chain has reached far beyond Wisconsin to
cities around the country. Last week, it marked its 700th opening
with a new restaurant in Chandler, Ariz.
Headquartered in Prairie du Sac, Culver’s has locations in 25 states
after it entered the Alabama marketplace in 2018. The chain opened
46 restaurants in 2018, and there are plans for 50 more in 2019.
“As we celebrate our 35th anniversary this year, it’s amazing how
far we’ve come since opening our very first restaurant in Sauk City,
Wisconsin,” says Joe Koss, president and CEO, in a statement.
Culver’s was founded on July 18, 1984, by co-founder Craig Culver
and his family. Today there are six company- owned restaurants with
the rest owned and operated by independent franchisees.
