Meyer Foods Management Company is an Indiana-based, family-owned franchisee, overseeing a portfolio of over 20 Culver’s establishments across Ohio, Indiana, and Georgia, as indicated on its website. What Now Columbus attempted to glean insights into the prospective opening timeline by reaching out to a Meyer Foods Management Company representative. However, owing to the intricacies of the permitting process and various other considerations, an exact opening date remains undetermined.

Culver’s is celebrated for its signature “ButterBurgers,” characterized by their use of fresh, never frozen beef patties, prepared to order and served on a lightly buttered and toasted bun, as detailed on the restaurant’s official website. Currently, Culver’s already has several locations in Columbus and is a popular spot with locals.
