VILLAGE INN BEGINS 2014 WITH 12 NEW FRANCHISE AGREEMENTS
Village Inn, the family-dining brand known for serving quality breakfast all day and The Best Pie in America®,
is revving up its franchising efforts in 2014 beginning with the announcement that six different Village Inn franchise
partners have committed to opening 12 new restaurants. Three of these have already opened this year in Fargo, ND,
Tampa, FL and El Paso, TX. “We’ve experienced increased enthusiasm for the Village Inn brand among guests resulting in strong sales growth which has captured the attention of talented and proven franchisees,” said Monty Whitehurst, VP of franchising at Village Inn. “Now that all company-owned, and 80% of franchise Village Inn
locations have been reimaged, we are turning our attention to new restaurant growth. With 17 consecutive quarters of year-over-year sales increases, Village Inn’s success has re-energized existing franchise partners and attracted new operators who want to join us during this time of positive momentum.”
All of the new restaurants will take advantage of Village Inn’s updated look which includes a freshened logo and contemporary, brighter decor that builds on the familiar and comfortable atmosphere guests have come to expect from our family-dining restaurants.
The first Village Inn restaurant opened in 1958, followed by the first franchise restaurant in 1961. Village Inn’s continued growth and success has demonstrated that its unique brand of family restaurant will never go out of style.
