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.

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.
