How We Selected Jefferson for a New Huddle House Franchise
A lot of thought, research, and planning go into selecting a territory for a new Huddle House franchise. Our franchisees often come to us with a location in mind, and we do the research to ensure that there’s a strong potential for success in the area. Because our restaurants are popular gathering places for community groups, their presence is one factor in our decision-making process. Jefferson is home to a large number of groups including:
- Local high school sports teams
- The Veterans of Foreign Wars
- Numerous churches
- Smithland Volunteer Fire Department
- … and many more
Community groups love to meet at Huddle House restaurants because of our welcoming and relaxed atmosphere where we encourage guests to enjoy a cup of coffee and sit for a while. We also look at factors related to the site itself such as its proximity to other businesses, its visibility from major roads, and so forth.
While smaller communities like Jefferson have always been great Huddle House locations, we’ve started expanding into more suburban areas as well.
Dedication to Our Franchisees
We know that every Huddle House franchise grand opening is important to franchisees and we work hard to make the process of getting there as simple as possible. Furthermore, we’re just as invested in the success of every location as our franchisees are. Tim Linderman, our Chief Development Officer states: “We’re thrilled to continue growing with our franchise partners and to introduce Huddle House to Jefferson. We’re confident that the community is going to love all that we have to offer and will find themselves at home in our warm, welcoming restaurant.”
But our support doesn’t end once the restaurant is up and running. We continue to assist our franchisees through resources like:
- Ongoing training to maintain best practices
- Research and development to stay on top of industry trends
- An in-house supply chain that keeps food prices low
- Marketing support to keep customers coming
- Business coaching to help reach growth targets
Huddle House has been around since 1964 because we look at the big picture. Our franchisees are the lifeblood of our company and we work hard to help them feel supported and confident as they run their businesses.
