At Huddle House, we know from experience that going into business for yourself is exciting and rewarding, but it can also be challenging at times. Not all small businesses succeed. In fact, according to the Small Business Association, 30% of new businesses fail within the first two years of opening their doors. But the good news is, when you open your Huddle House franchise, you’ll be backed by our 50+ years of experience in the diner industry. We know how to operate our restaurants successfully, and we do virtually everything we can to help your Huddle House breakfast restaurant franchise succeed, too. Let’s take a look at a few ways to better your chances of thriving when you become part of the Huddle House family.
Pick the Right Location
You’ve heard it before: location, location, location! This doesn’t just apply to where you choose to live. It’s also critical to where you choose to do business. Fortunately, when you become a Huddle House franchise partner, you won’t have to make this important decision alone. We’ll help you determine the perfect location to begin your breakfast restaurant franchise by leveraging data, analytics, and our partnership with one of the best site selection consultants out there. We work with Buxton, the Fort Worth-based site selection consultancy that helps restaurants and other retail clients manage their growth. Using data from our existing locations and their own research, the experts at Buxton collaborate with the our real estate and franchise development departments to make strategic decisions about how to grow the Huddle House brand and help improve our franchisees’ return on investment. Buxton also helps our teams determine how to protect existing locations when opening new properties so that one doesn’t encroach on with the other. The end result is that your Huddle House franchise location will be better poised for growth!
Become Part of Your Community
We’re proud to say that we’ve made our reputation by serving the small towns and communities that other restaurant brands may have passed by. More than fifty years ago, our founder wanted to build a restaurant where a local football team could huddle up and celebrate that winning touchdown, and so he did — and an iconic breakfast franchise was born! Today, it’s a whole lot more than football teams who come to Huddle House to celebrate. When you open your Huddle House franchise, you’ll become a gathering spot for families, neighborhood groups, and sports teams who want the comfort of a home-style meal and the friendly atmosphere of a family kitchen. Our Southern hospitality is a Huddle House cornerstone, and our franchise owners know this. They make it a point to give back to their communities by supporting local charities or sponsoring high school sporting teams, among other efforts. It’s important to recognize that, as a Huddle House restaurant owner, you’ll be counted on as an essential member of your community, which will go a long way towards building a strong business.
Stick to the Model
It’s no accident that we’ve been in business for more than half a century. Our time-tested and proven business model has allowed hundreds of Huddle House locations to thrive and make a difference in the communities they serve. Our “Any Meal. Any Time.” approach means customers can enjoy a delicious home-style breakfast any time of day, and our menu of high- quality, affordable options makes Huddle House a regular go-to destination for countless families and groups across the country. When you partner with Huddle House, you’ll be set up for success by sticking to what we do best — serving great comfort food 24 hours a day with a smile!
