A burger, cheese cureds and custard represent Culver's menu items.

If Midwest-inspired food like burgers, cheese curds and fresh frozen custard is your thing, consider having a meal this Veterans Day at your local Culver’s restaurant. Culver’s offers traditional dinners like beef pot roast and North Atlantic cod, but they are most famous for their ButterBurgers, made with lightly buttered buns and never-frozen beef.

While Culver’s franchise owners set their sale and discount policies independently, many Culver’s restaurants will recognize Veterans Day with discounts, fundraisers and ceremonial observances. Some Culver’s restaurants also offer everyday perks for military members and veterans, including discounts and designated parking spots.

Culver’s Everyday Military Discount

Culver’s restaurants don’t offer a universal military discount because individual franchisees own and operate every Culver’s location.

However, some Culver’s restaurants offer an everyday military discount, which varies by restaurant. Among 10 Culver’s locations, we found daily military and veterans discounts as high as 15%. 

Contact your local store to find out about their military discount policy.

Culver’s Veterans Day Discounts

Veterans Day discounts at Culver’s restaurants also vary by location. Some locations offer special Veterans Day-only discounts, while others offer free items like custard. 

Some Culver’s stores host community Veterans Day events. 

The Culver’s in In Huntley, Illinois observes Veterans Day with a weekend program that includes local military and veterans organizations, ceremonies, speeches and – sometimes –  community flyovers by local military units. 

“We’re always there for (veterans), and we appreciate their service,” said Scott Barbknecht, the Huntley store’s general manager. “This is our way of showing our gratitude for what they do.” 

How Culver’s Supports the Military

Bill Lock and Jim and Terri Agate own the Huntley, Illinois store. The trio also owns another location in Beloit, Wisconsin. Both stores donate 11% of their Veterans Day profits to VetsRoll, Barbknecht said. 

VetsRoll funds veteran trips to war memorials and other Washington, D.C., historical sites. The organization offers these free joint trips to senior citizen veterans and women who joined the workforce in World War II to support the Allied war effort. 

Barbknecht said Lock and the Agates started getting other Wisconsin and Illinois franchisees involved in the effort. This year, more than 55 locations in Wisconsin, Illinois and Idaho will participate in the fundraiser, according to the VetsRoll website. 

Other Culver’s locations support veterans with donations and fundraisers for local veterans events and organizations, including Honor Flight Network. A pair of Wisconsin Culver’s locations also provided free custard to Air National Guard members after their deployment, according to Culver’s corporate website
