Breakfast is big, which makes now a great time to invest in our breakfast franchise.
Over half of restaurant-goers in the U.S. now self-identify as foodies, and the number ticks higher with the Millennial generation, of which 68% would put themselves in that category, according to Mintel research. That’s partly because the definition of foodie has evolved beyond people with esoteric palates who enjoy kale smoothies, into people who simply love food.
If you’re a foodie who loves food and the food business, you should be well acquainted with Huddle House, a breakfast franchise that’s been around for over 50 years and was recently named as one of Small Business Trends’ 20 Unique Restaurant Opportunities for Foodie Business Operators.
As the listing notes, we are a 24-hour restaurant concept that specializes in breakfast, although we serve lunch and dinner and favorites, too. One of the reasons we qualify as a “foodie franchise” is because we serve “Any Meal. Any Time.” so customers can order a Jalapeno Chipotle Burger at 5 a.m. or a Southern Smothered Biscuit Platter at 11:30 p.m. The “when” doesn’t matter; the “why” is because Huddle House goes out of our way to make every guest feel welcomed, and to cater to their tastes regardless of the hour. While we’re in 21 states and growing, our hospitality stems from a Southern tradition, and we maintain that wherever we’re located.
Why Huddle House works
Our franchises tend to do well in smaller communities where people need a place to connect, and where they sometimes have nowhere else to eat besides fast-food joints. Huddle House was founded in 1964 on the premise that every community needed a place for a sit-down meal, a spot to gather after the game and a restaurant where they could take the whole family.
Breakfast has always been a favorite part of our menu — comprising about 60% of overall sales — and that works out well from a profitability standpoint, since breakfast food costs are typically lower on average than non-breakfast. That equates to a higher profit margin for owners.
As long as there are foodies who love affordable, delicious comfort food and people who are passionate about serving them, Huddle House will be there, leading the pack.
