From a press release that is nearly too exciting for me to bear:
TUCSON TO WELCOME CULVER’S RESTAURANTS
Wisconsin-based Franchise to Feature Great Food, Service and Hospitality
The Midwest-based Culver’s franchise will open two new restaurants in Tucson later this summer.
Culver’s is an expanding fast-casual franchise system with 428 independently owned and operated restaurants in 19 states. The restaurants’ award-winning customer service is based on small-town, Midwestern values, genuine friendliness and an unwavering commitment to quality and cleanliness. Signature items include the ButterBurger®, (from the lightly buttered bun) made from fresh, never frozen U.S. beef, and fresh Frozen Custard, including the famous Flavor of the Day program.
In 2010, Culver’s guests love for its high-quality menu options and superior customer service led to recognition by Consu! mer Reports in its “Best Burgers” poll and Zagat in its Fast Food Survey.
The restaurants will be operated by Kevin Hart at 40 S. Broadway Place, and Kyle Kolsrud at 6905 N. Thorndale Rd. There are currently six Culver’s restaurants in Arizona.
Oh, Culver's. Soon your Snickers Concrete Mixer and I will be reunited, never to be torn apart.
