5. They're incredibly generous
Culver's has a philanthropy program that gives money to local groups, national charities (like the American Family Children's Hospital), and employees in the form of scholarships. But if you want a real mark of their kindness, consider what happened in Platteville, WI. After a catastrophic fire shut down the local Culver's, franchise owner Bruce Kroll assured his team of 40 that they'd be taken care of. They assumed he had worked things out through their insurance company, but it turned out the policy only covered up to 60 days. The rest of the money -- $144,000 -- came out of Bruce's own pocket. His grateful employees scored him a spot on Steve Harvey, where he was hopefully also rewarded with sweet Blu-rays of Think Like a Man.
