With expenses from commodities to health care continuing to put increasing pressure on margins, many operators are looking closer than ever at their labor costs and how to cut them. While the default action for most operators is to cut employees or their hours, workforce-management experts say the best answer is to instead schedule hours more wisely.
Culver's recently launched the new Three Cheese ButterBurger, giving guests three new reasons to head to Culver's. The ButterBurger, a guest favorite, is amplified with three varieties of cheese, all crafted in Culver's home state of Wisconsin. Cheddar (Kiel, Wisconsin), Swiss (New Berlin), and American (Manitowoc County) bloom with flavor on the Midwest-raised beef seared on a grill. The lightly buttered, toasted bun gives a ButterBurger its signature name.
It’s no secret that running a restaurant is a risky business. The fact that many restaurants will ultimately fail early in their existence is not lost on most entrepreneurs, and yet they carry on anyway in hopes that their restaurant dreams can be made true.
In an effort to increase awareness of its already established healthful menu options, Culver’s is launching a community-based Mindful Choices program aimed at promoting choice and dispelling the idea that eating at Culver’s is not a healthy option.
