Culver’s grand opening set for Monday
BULLHEAD CITY — Culver’s, the newest restaurant chain to locate in Bullhead City, officially joins the menu for Tri-state residents on Monday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. with franchise owner and operator Lori Deschene joined by Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brady, City Manager Toby Cotter, representatives from the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce and other community leaders.
The restaurant, at 3699 Highway 95, Suite 700 in the Mohave Crossroads shopping center, then will open for business at 10 a.m. Normal hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant will be open seven days a week, except for a few major holidays.
“We’re thrilled to bring handcrafted, high-quality meals and desserts to the community of Bullhead City,” said Deschene. “We think it’s a wonderful area and we are excited to become a contributing and active member.”
Culver’s signature sandwich and guest-favorite, the ButterBurger, is made with 100 percent fresh, never frozen, U.S. beef made cooked-to-order and topped with a lightly buttered and toasted bun. In celebration of the opening of its newest location, Culver’s is offering its first 50 dine-in guests a free ButterBurger every week for a year.
Culver’s, a Midwest staple, is know for its fresh frozen custard. According to the company, the frozen custard “gets its legendary creamy decadence from high-quality, fresh Wisconsin dairy from which every batch is crafted throughout the day.”
An item that will be new to the Tri-state is Culver’s Wisconsin cheese curds.
“Culver’s was founded on the idea of providing excellent service and high-quality food made with the best ingredients,” said Deschene. “The outstanding people who serve our guests behind the counter have helped us earn our reputation, and we’re excited to have team members from the surrounding community as part of our team.”
Culver’s announced a Bullhead City location in December of 2017 and broke ground for the building in June of last year. Originally expected to open in late 2018, the opening was pushed back to February.
Once up and running, the restaurant is expected to employ about eight management personnel and 60 crewmembers.
“Culver’s is a great American company that we are thrilled to have in our community,” Cotter said at the June groundbreaking. “It’s a great addition to the Mohave Crossroads neighborhood just because (the area) needs more food and it’s been something we’ve been working on for a long time. So with the addition of the fieldhouse just down the street, there will be other food options coming to this area. It’s a real nice addition to the community.”
