Ron and Barb Mallon signed their first franchise agreement in May 1993. They opened their first Culver’s restaurant in McFarland, WI on December 21 1993 with partners Bob and Jodi Coon. Their son Bryan came back from Michigan to help them open up and decided to stay. They realized about six months into the business that they needed to expand so Ron and Barb signed a franchise agreement for Janesville, WI. Ron, Barb, and Bryan opened the Janesville Culver’s location on Milton Avenue on December 1, 1994. After selling the McFarland franchise, Ron, Barb and Bryan opened a second restaurant in Janesville on West Court Street in 2000.
Ron, Barb and Bryan worked very hard to achieve, what they like to affectionately call the #1 Culver’s. In 2004 they found a site on interstate 90 in Newville (Edgerton, WI). They have a second son, Scott, who graduated from U-W Oshkosh in operations management and was a plant manager for Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac for 6 years. He wasn’t very happy with the “Big Corporate World” and showed interested in joining the family in the Culver’s business.
Ron and Barb thoroughly enjoy working with their sons in the family business. Bryan is the operating partner in the two restaurants in Janesville and Scott is the operating partner for the Newville location and the Midland Rd. Janesville location. Ron and Barb truly believe their sons have taken their business to the next level.
