A local Culver’s store manager was recently recognized for her superior leadership and operational skills, beating out intense national competition.
Culver’s corporate office announced that Laura Hobart has won Culver’s Excellence in Leadership Award. Only 10 managers were selected for the award out of the more than 428 restaurants in 19 states.
Hobart, along with the other winners, received the prestigious award, special recognition and a $2,500 cash award during the annual Culver’s Reunion in Phoenix in February.
Hobart began her career at Culver’s in 2003 and has been a general manager in the award-winning franchise for five years. Managers were nominated by franchise owners and were evaluated on their ongoing track record of success throughout their tenure in a leadership role. Their level of commitment in delighting guests every day, managing operational performance, supporting True Blue Crew development, improving financial results and growing the Culver’s brand were all scrutinized through a lengthy process.
