Huddle House Franchise Expands Franchise Development Staff To Handle Accelerated Growth

Huddle House Franchise brings in new talent as it plans to open 100 new restaurants in the next three years

Huddle House, the popular full-service family restaurant known for serving “Any Meal. Any Time.”, is expanding our franchise sales staff to support an aggressive development campaign designed to significantly increase the number of our locations over the next three years.

Jeff Hood, former Director of Franchise Sales for Papa Murphy’s Take ’N’ Bake Pizza, joins the company as Director of Franchise Development. Cassidy Ford, former business development associate with How Do You Roll?, joins the Huddle House team as Franchise Development Manager.

With more than 400 restaurants open and under development, our 50-year old franchise is growing well beyond its original core market in the Southeast and into markets in the West, Midwest and Northeast. Throughout the first nine months of 2014, the Huddle House franchise signed 18 new franchises and two new multi-unit deals for a total of more than 30 restaurants.

“The addition of Jeff and Cassidy reflects our focus on growing the franchise system,” says Michael Abt, Huddle House CEO. “Each brings experience and expertise that will be needed as we increase the pace of our expansion over the next few years.”

Founded in 1964, the Huddle House franchise serves breakfast, lunch and dinner all day, or as we like to say “Any Meal. Any Time.” Our 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.
