PULLMAN — Culver’s, the popular restaurant chain, is opening a location in Pullman and hiring employees.

The Culver’s will open in early November at 111th Street and Doty Avenue. The restaurant is seeking applicants to fill 60-70 full-time and part-time jobs. 

“It’s important that we work in the community to provide people of all ages with new opportunities that offer the skills and experience,” Baron Waller, the owner and a mentor who grew up on Chicago’s West Side, said in a statement. “It is one of the best ways to build a brighter future.”

Although prior restaurant experience is a plus, it is not necessary. Interested applicants can apply on Culver’s website

The restaurant will be the first stand-alone, casual sit-down dining option to open in Pullman in years, according to Culver’s. Customers will have the choice between indoor and patio seating, as well as a drive-thru. 

This will be Waller’s third Culver’s location in Chicago, adding to ones in Lincoln Square and Bronzeville. He also owns three Culver’s restaurants in the southwest suburbs.

“We’re excited that Baron has chosen to bring Culver’s to the Pullman and Roseland community,” Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) said in a statement. “Culver’s will be a great addition to the community serving not only residents, but the visitors to the Pullman National Monument Visitor, the Pullman Community Center and employees of all the businesses in the area and more.”
