The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) has commended Culver’s Restaurants for promoting the hiring of individuals with developmental disabilities and helping them become productive employees in their restaurants.

At a ceremony at the Culver’s Support Center in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, Culver’s co-founder and CEO, Craig Culver, accepted the commendation from DWD Secretary Scott Baumbach.

“In Wisconsin, we are fortunate to have a variety of programs and employers, to assist jobseekers who face barriers to employment due to a disability achieve their fullest potential and be economically self-sufficient,” Baumbach says. “It is important for us to promote the inclusion of these individuals, and to recognize Wisconsin employers such as Culver’s who lead the way.”

“So much of Culver’s success is due to the efforts of all of our team members. We’re all the same here with the goal of providing the best service to our guests,” Culver says. “It’s an honor to accept this commendation on behalf of all our restaurants and our support team.”

The commendation coincides with Disability Awareness Month in Wisconsin.
