Culver’s is bringing new flavor to its leadership team with the appointment of Enrique “Rick” Silva as CEO.

Silva, who starts March 29, will lead the system of 792 restaurants, 496 owner-operators, 31,000 team members and the Culver’s Franchise Support Team.

He hails from Checkers & Rally’s Restaurants, where he served as CEO for 13 years. At Checkers, he worked to establish a family culture while also improving unit-level operating margins and growing the chain’s enterprise value from $180 million to $525 million, according to a press release. In 2017, he worked in partnership with Oak Hill Capital Partners, who acquired the 844-unit Checkers Drive-in Restaurants, to grow the drive-thru chain.

Silva replaces Joe Koss, who retired in late 2020 after four years as CEO and 23 years with Culver’s.
