Culver’s of Whitewater, WI

Creating yummy ButterBurgers & supporting community.

1. What’s an interesting fact about your business most people don’t know?

We are more than just serving up yummy ButterBurgers and Frozen Custard. We love being involved in the community. Culver’s supports so many organizations and clubs from little kids all the way to Seniors.

2. What do you see as the key to your success?

I am a people person, and I like to see, not only the guests happy, but my team members as well. I have seen most of my management staff start in High School as their first job and watch them grow into top leaders in my restaurant and make Culver’s a career. That is the biggest reward. I want success for everyone who works for me.

3. What motivates you?

Seeing regular customers coming in daily. Knowing that they keep coming in for the good quality food and our service. This community has supported and been there for us. They keep coming back and just getting to know everyone here throughout the year has been such a blessing. Whitewater has so many wonderful people and I am so proud to be apart of it.

4. What advice would you give a new business owner?

The respect you give your team and community is important. How you treat people will greatly impact your business. Listen, communicate, and react. People want to be heard and valued. That is a huge part of our success here at Whitewater Culver’s.
