Huddle House Wraps Up its 50th Anniversary with Strong-Year of Growth
Huddle House recently wrapped up its 50th anniversary with one of the chain’s strongest years of growth ever, signing 21 new franchise agreements, opening eight new restaurants, completing 41 remodels and adding four new company operated restaurants through the acquisition of existing locations.
In addition, as the 2014-2015 fiscal year closed in May, Huddle House recorded its 17th consecutive month of positive same store sales increases. Overall, new franchise and development agreement signings were up 23.5 percent over the previous fiscal year and new construction starts finished 140 percent ahead of the previous fiscal year.
Chambers will continue this successful expansion for the brand. In addition, Huddle house will continue to offer incentives to new franchisees who take over and remodel existing stores.
“The results continue to prove that the remodeling program as well as other initiatives introduced over the past few years are paying off both in the performance of our restaurants as well as franchise growth,”said Huddle House CEO Michael Abt.“Demand for Huddle House franchises has never been stronger.”
Typically open 24-hours, Huddle House serves breakfast, lunch and dinner all day. The menu offers a mix of Southern inspired comfort food, including signature Big House breakfasts, crispy hash browns, creamy grits, golden waffles and fluffy omelets, all made to order. Other favorites include Big Bold Burgers, Big House sandwich platters, country fried steak with green beans and marinated grilled chicken with sweet potato fries.
The core values on which Huddle House was founded –serving quality food in a warm, friendly environment that brings the community together – remain intact today.
