Iconic Homestyle Restaurant Franchises Combine to Offer Investment Opportunity in More Markets Than Ever Before
ATLANTA – With the announcement that Huddle House has acquired Perkins Restaurant & Bakery, hotel owners and investors across the country now have an expanded opportunity to add an iconic restaurant bakery brand onto a hotel or existing investment portfolio.
“By acquiring Perkins, we’re proud to be able to offer an excellent franchise opportunity to even more investors, in particular hotel owners who may have long wanted to add Huddle House to their property but were outside one of our distribution states,” said Tim Linderman, Chief Development Officer of Huddle House and Perkins. “Now, if you are looking for another option to add a restaurant, bakery or breakfast café to your hotel, convenience store or another existing business, Perkins is the perfect concept to diversity your portfolio.”
Huddle House’s independent supply chain has long been one of the brand’s biggest strengths, bringing the beloved homestyle restaurant concept to the southeast across its collection of distribution states. The addition of Perkins, which uses a wholesale supplier to bring its fan-favorite breakfast café and bakery menu to communities across the country, will give more hotel owners and other investors the chance to bring an iconic brand to more new markets than ever before.
Perkins’ strong reputation as a much-loved bakery and breakfast café makes it the perfect investment for a hotel owner that may have long wished to invest in a strong brand like Huddle House, but whose existing hotel properties were in states outside of the southeastern United States.
“We have always seen Perkins as a perfect complimentary fit for Huddle House, filling the same consumer niche for satisfying, affordable, homestyle food in communities across America,” Linderman added. “With Perkins within our suite of brands, we’re excited to offer motivated hoteliers and entrepreneurs the chance to bring a strong breakfast and bakery option to their hotels and other properties. This is an exciting step for both Perkins and Huddle House.”
