For the record, Craig Culver’s favorite frozen custard at Culver’s Restaurant is vanilla, but he’s also partial to the most popular flavor, caramel pecan.
Culver, whose family founded the popular Culver’s Restaurant franchise, came to Lakeland Tuesday to share his entrepreneurial journey. The 125-plus students who attended got plenty of advice on how to start a successful business, along with a scoop of the famous vanilla frozen custard.
His visit came thanks to the Entrepreneurial Management course taught by Stephanie Hoskins, Lakeland’s Herbert Kohler & Frank Jacobson Chair of Business & Entrepreneurship. A student in the class, Kaelyn Brahm, reached out to Culver as part of an assignment and secured his appearance.
