The 50-year old iconic breakfast franchise rapidly expands across the country.
Our iconic breakfast franchise brand is rapidly expanding across the nation, as new Huddle House locations are scheduled to open in Virginia, Florida, and Texas by the end of April 2016.
Yahoo! Finance recently broke the news of our planned expansion across the southern United States. The article reports that new breakfast franchise restaurants will open in Suffolk, Virginia, and Ocala, Florida, as well as in three more Texas towns — Bonham, Paris, and Sulphur Springs.
We have seen continued strong interest in our Huddle House franchise opportunity, especially among successful business men and women looking to expand their business portfolios into new areas, the article says. Businesspeople with proven experience recognize our growth potential and are eager to join the Huddle House franchise.
Our expansion isn’t slowing anytime soon
We have more than 400 restaurants open or under development, and our 51-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 expansion is gaining momentum as a result of our “Evolution” remodeling campaign, which is giving us a modern look and feel as we enter a new era. The significant increase in average annualized unit sales for our remodeled restaurants is also published in the latest Huddle House Franchise Disclosure Document.
In a recent interview with Nation’s Restaurant News, Huddle House CMO Alison Delaney spoke of the impact the remodeling campaign is having on our breakfast franchise restaurants.
“I can honestly say that the sales lift we’re getting is truly phenomenal,” Alison says. “Not only do our remodeled restaurants experience a tremendous surge once they’re open, we hold on to those increases throughout the first year and into the years beyond. In other words, for the most part, we don’t give back the initial sales generated based on the tremendous interest in the refurbished facility.”
On top of the rapid expansion already under way, we recently announced that we plan to open another 100 Huddle House locations around the country. To realize our vision, we are expanding our franchise sales staff to support an aggressive development campaign over the next three years.
Great for multi-unit and investor owners
Huddle House helps franchisees invest back into the communities they serve. Each location creates an average of 50 jobs in its community — a noticeable impact in the small markets where we thrive. Our investors have the satisfaction of knowing they can explore the potential for a high rate of return on an accessible investment.
The Huddle House business model works just as well for a single-unit owner who is passionate about creating a gathering space and improving his or her hometown as it does for a multi-unit investor who envisions opening and operating a string of Huddle House restaurants throughout a region.
Huddle House is a 24-hour, Southern-inspired family restaurant franchise that is known for serving affordable, unapologetically homestyle food in a warm, friendly environment. Huddle House locations are often beloved gathering places in their communities, places where residents and travelers can get breakfast, lunch and dinner any time of the day or night.
