Culver’s has grown from a Wisconsin chain of family-owned quick-service restaurants to an 800-unit brand with locations in 25 states. Director of Menu Development Quinn Adkins joined Culver’s in 2015, helping to drive that growth with slow but steady menu innovation.
Loyal customers come back again and again for core items such as Butter Burgers, cheese curds, frozen custard and chicken tenders, and these can never come off the menu. But Adkins thoughtfully incorporates contemporary culinary ideas, including a veggie burger made with real vegetables, entrees featuring sustainable seafood and on-trend frozen custard flavors.
Listen as Adkins talks about Culver’s longtime mission of partnering with Wisconsin farmers and how he brings culinary flair to a quick-service menu.
