Culver’s Expands Plans For Florida Footprint
Winter is a very good time for a Midwest chain to think about Florida. Wisconsin-based Culver's Restaurants, which has nearly 500 fast-casual independently owned and operated units in 21 states, already has three stores in Naples, Fort Myers and Port Charlotte, Fla., as well as others under construction in Sarasota and Estero. Now it’s beefing up its plans for Orlando and is planning to expand across the entire Sunshine State. Fifteen stores should be operating or under construction by the end of the year.
