5 Reasons Why Huddle House Family Dining Franchise is Better Than the Competition

Investors have better reasons than ever to join America’s favorite family dining franchise.

With an iconic brand like Huddle House, which has been around for nearly 50 years, people sometimes fixate on an outdated image of the brand. The Huddle House you think you know, however, has changed a lot over the last half-century. We are a dynamic and fast-growing company, one that knows how to change with the times and is a step ahead of the trends. If you’re looking for a fresh, inventive family dining franchise Huddle House may be the perfect brand for you. Here are five reasons we stand out from the competition:

1. Great value. At Huddle House, we’re proud of our value proposition. With our fryers, we offer many options — think fried shrimp, onion rings, french fries — that many breakfast franchises don’t. Our menus are loaded up with meals under $8, $6, even $5. Customers know they can count on high-quality food at very affordable prices, and that’s one of the things that keeps them coming back time after time. Where else can they find a ribeye steak dinner for two or breakfast for four under $20? Huddle House counts on repeat business to drive revenues, and keeping our meals delicious but affordable is one way we do that.

2. Small markets. We specialize in places where other family dining franchises fear to go. Or maybe they just choose to ignore small markets, but Huddle House finds its sweet spot in communities of 10,000 or less. We become the hub of a small town that desperately wants – and needs – a gathering place. Founder John Sparks envisioned just that when he built the first Huddle House in 1964 in Decatur, Ga. He saw a group of boys at his restaurant after football practice huddling up, and he was inspired enough by the image to build the now-iconic family dining franchise. Although Huddle Houses work in any size market, they are especially popular in small towns.

3. Real Southern hospitality. Our franchisees get involved in their communities, and they get to know their customers by name. Even non-regulars can count on a friendly greeting the moment they walk in the door of any Huddle House, anywhere. Why? Because we care about our customers. We want them to have a wonderful meal at a place where they feel welcome anytime, whether they’re in for a quick cup of coffee or a leisurely supper. The reason we exist is to serve our customers, and we make their happiness our priority.

Huddle House Open 24 Hours4. 24-hour concept. Small towns are notorious for rolling up the sidewalks at 9 p.m. That leaves night owls, college students and third-shift workers out in the cold in these places if they were hoping for anything other than fast food. When Huddle House comes to town, that changes, because the vast majority of our locations are open 24 hours a day. Everyone from insomniacs to early risers can take advantage of our always-open doors. It also creates extra opportunities for employment in small communities.

5. Any Meal, Any Time. You’ll see the words “Any Meal. Any Time.” Prominently displayed on our menu and the walls of our restaurants. Why should people be held hostage by a restaurant’s arbitrary mealtime cutoffs? If a customer wants a breakfast sandwich at 10:35 a.m., they should have it! If they want any meal, for that matter — a chicken-fried steak at 4:30 in the morning, a club sandwich with fries at 8 a.m. or a Western omelet at 6:30 p.m. — Huddle House has them covered.
