Franchisees are expected to have an owner/operator philosophy commensurate with Culver's, personally managing and operating their restaurant full-time. Franchisees must also maintain a minimum 50% ownership in the business entity or 25% in both the business and real estate.
A minimum of $250,000 to $400,000 in liquid assets is required to qualify for a franchise. Liquid assets do not include real estate (including home), automobiles, personal effects, or borrowed funds.
As to territories, the company will consider granting a franchise in areas with over 10,000 people and 10,000 jobs within a 3-mile radius of a proposed site. The ideal site should be a place people pass on their way to work, school, shopping, or recreation, with roads around your site allowing guests adequate decision making time, visibility, and a speed limit of 35 mph or less.
Franchisees receive extensive initial training as well as ongoing management training opportunities. On-site training, purchasing and marketing assistance are also provided.
