Culver's is offering two pepper-flavored sandwiches, a Pepper Grinder Bacon ButterBurger and a Pepper Grinder Bacon Chicken Sandwich, and two new desserts for summer.
The sandwiches both include “hot pepper” cheese and a “hand-mixed” four-peppercorn mayonnaise. They will be available until Sept. 19, Culver's said.
The burger is served on the chain’s signature toasted, lightly buttered bun. It's priced between $4.29 to $4.59 for a standard sandwich, which comes with two patties, or $2.99 to $3.29 for a single. Prices vary by location.
The chicken comes either “crispy or flame roasted” with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and a lightly toasted, buttered hoagie bun. The chicken sandwich is priced at $4.79 to $5.09, depending on the location.
“Pepper is a big and bold flavor that grabs your attention,” says Craig Culver, co-founder and chief executive of Prairie du Sac, Wis.-based Culver Franchising System Inc.
This new summer dessert offerings at Culver’s include a Cherry Cheesecake Concrete Mixer and Brownie Batter Concrete Mixer.
Culver's also announced the winner of its Ultimate ButterBurger Build-Off Contest. Aana Blalock from Rapid City, S.D., won with The Luau Burger, a traditional ButterBurger topped with teriyaki-marinated pineapple and Wisconsin cheddar cheese.
“Teriyaki is a popular flavor trend that works great for ButterBurgers,” said Jim Doak, executive chef of Culver’s. “Aana’s recipe is a unique twist on our signature ButterBurger — it pairs the familiar, cheddar, with the exotic, pineapple.”
The winning burger will be available for a limited time at the company’s original store in Sauk City, Wis.
Culver’s has more than 420 independently owned and operated restaurants.
