It’s no secret that Americans love the open road. We love our cars and we love to travel — and Huddle House loves to be there, too! Since 1964, we’ve been serving the hungry traveler delicious home-style comfort food from coast to coast, in free-standing restaurants, as partners with hotels and motels, and as part of an increasing number of travel centers. In fact, our breakfast franchises are a great fit in a number of formats, and our multi-unit franchise opportunity co-brands nicely with other businesses. Travel centers, in particular, are a great fit for Huddle House because our quickly-prepared, affordable and delicious food, coupled with our “Any meal. Any time.” philosophy appeals to vacationers and the road-weary alike.
We Love Non-Traditional Locations
Huddle House has built our reputation on serving the small towns that other brands have passed by, and our decades in business have allowed us to establish ourselves as a friendly place for community members and groups to meet, eat, and catch up. People love us because they know our breakfast franchises are committed to old-fashioned hospitality, all-day breakfast, and Southern-style comfort food. In the years since we began, we’ve taken that commitment and extended it to non-traditional locations like truck stops, convenience stores, and travel centers, bringing our wholesome and traditional dining approach to customers who may be extra-appreciative of it. Travel centers are part of our multi-unit franchise opportunity because we know we can meet a real need when we co-brand with them, and because we know travelers welcome a place to rest and satisfy their appetite for good, home-style cooking!
Who doesn’t love breakfast? Travelers sure do, and for lots of good reasons. It’s an important start to anyone’s day, but especially so for folks who are on the road — after all, nobody likes to drive hungry. That love of breakfast is at the heart of our “Any meal. Any time.” motto, and is why we serve breakfast all day, at all our Huddle House locations. Today, breakfast meals make up 60% of our sales, and our franchisees appreciate the popularity of those menu items because of their higher margins, as compared to other Huddle House meals. Travelers of all stripes — families, couples, and individuals — welcome the sight of a Huddle House on the road because they know they can sit down and enjoy an affordable meal any time of day, served by friendly and attentive staff at a price that leaves them a little extra for gas or lodging.
The Perks of a Multi-Unit Franchise Opportunity
Whether you open your second or third Huddle House as part of a travel center, truck stop, hotel or motel, the benefits of owning more than one breakfast franchise with us are numerous. One of the obvious perks is increased revenue. As you meet the needs of additional communities, more than one Huddle House means more than one revenue stream, and slower times at one location can be offset by busier times at a neighboring one. Another great advantage is streamlined operational costs. When you own multiple franchises, you can share supplies when one location runs low. And owning more than one Huddle House serves another very important function — it grows your brand! When you are a multi-unit Huddle House franchise owner, you become known for it, as more and more people discover the delicious, Southern-style comfort foods you serve at each of your restaurants.
With more than half a century in business under our belts, we’ve become a familiar icon in the restaurant industry, one that draws local guests as well as hungry travelers passing by, making our offering a perfect opportunity to co-brand with travel centers and other non-traditional sites.
