It was another great year for Culvers of Lake Orion. Culvers is represented in 24 states consisting of 568 restaurants, crafting every ButterBurger and custard specialty to order.


Culvers of Lake Orion owners Joe and Sue Zimmer just recently returned from Phoenix after the annual convention, spending qual- ity time with over 1,200 of their local franchises.Following tradition, hospitality with that ‘downtown home service’ was top on the list of subjects discussed this year at the reunion.

All the franchises in attendance were re- minded by its founder Craig Culver how im- portant it is to make sure our guests are pro- vided a safe and clean environment and all our employees are trained to ensure the proper procedures are followed. We must al- ways make sure all employees are trained to understand how important personal hygiene and food safety are to the Culvers brand. The Zimmers again were the recipients of three distinguished awards presented to those franchises that exemplify high stan- dards following the Culvers brand: “The Pride Award” for the restaurant’s great curb ap-


Not only was Culvers of Lake Orion a winner last year within the franchise for mul- tiple awards, but the beauti- ful state of Michigan was number one in sales increases for the country.

peal on the outside, while also providing all guests a clean, warm greeting with smiling faces while they dine inside, and that all cus- tomers when going through the drive through can hear the smiles from the order taker at the window; “The Grand Prize Award” which is presented to the restaurant in the area with the highest grossing sales figures exceeding the previous year; and the “The Manage- ment in Excellence Award” achieved by ad- hering to the Culvers’ mission statement, “making sure that every guest who chooses Culvers leaves happy.” In addition, the award highlights franchises who keep up all the high standards that the brand exudes while fol- lowing in the franchise’s selective service procedures, with esteemed recruiting, hiring training, and keeping all crew members moti- vated. It’s hard to believe that Culvers of Lake Orion will soon be celebrating its ten-year anniversary. The Zimmers are so grateful to all their loyal guests who have helped their restaurant become a popular destination for all customers. There is always something


going on at Culvers whether it’s a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization in the commu- nity—which has generated over $145,000 to date since its opening—or awarding several thousand dollars worth of college scholar- ships to those True Blue Culver s members who are employed and doing an outstanding job, both academically and work ethic wise. On a busy Tuesday night during the sum-


mer, between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., it is not un- usual to see anywhere from 400 to 500 clas- sic cars at Culvers Cruise Night, the largest Tuesday cruise in Oakland County. Cruises begin the first Tuesday in May, and run through the second Tuesday in October. On Wednesday nights Culvers celebrates Family Kids Night, offering all kids 12 and under $2.99 meals from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. To help promote the event, “Da” the Clown cus- tom makes free balloons to all the kids, a pro- fessional face painter entertains the crowds, and Rainbow Childcare hosts a crafts table with new crafts for the kids to learn each week. On Thursday during the summer months Culvers hosts an outdoor movie on a 16-foot-

screen in their parking lot. It’s a wonderful feeling to see all the families bring their kids to this free event who have never really ex- perienced what an outdoor movie is. These movies are selected by the Zimmers and are all family-friendly with a Disney theme. “All of these accomplishments were made possible by having the best team of manag- ers and crew members who take pride in their jobs every day,” says Joe Zimmer. “Our fresh food, great value, clean restaurant and out- standing service will take us far, but most important are our crew members who make it all happen. They truly enjoy their jobs and realize that they are here to make sure that every guest enjoys their dining experience.” On behalf of the entire Zimmer family and the True Blue Crew members, the Zimmers want to say ‘thank you’ for helping the Cul- vers of Lake Orion to be so successful.


One of the most important things Joe Zimmer has learned over his 50 years in the restaurant business is that he doesn’t build the business, he builds people, and the people will build the business.
