“We’re thrilled to bring handcrafted, high-quality meals and desserts to the Brandon community,” said franchise owner/operator, Theresa Hutchins. “We think it’s a wonderful area and we are excited to become a contributing and active member of the community.”

Culver’s signature sandwich and guest-favorite, the ButterBurger®, is made with 100% fresh, never frozen, U.S. beef made cooked-to-order and topped with a lightly buttered and toasted bun.

Culver’s Fresh Frozen Custard gets its legendary creamy decadence from high-quality, fresh Wisconsin dairy from which every batch is crafted throughout the day. In addition to making their own creations, guests can customize their desserts with more than 30 mix-ins and toppings. Every day Culver’s offers three flavors of frozen custard: vanilla, chocolate and a Flavor of the Day. The restaurant also features many other delicious choices, including a dairy land delicacy real Wisconsin cheese curd, fresh garden salads, chicken sandwiches and fish dinners. Kid’s meals are also available.

“Culver’s was founded on the idea of providing excellent service and high-quality food made with the best ingredients,” added Hutchins.
