A Highly-Motivated Franchisee
Huddle House works with all sorts of franchisees, some of whom have extensive industry experience and others who have never opened their own business. Because we’ve developed such a comprehensive training and support program, we’re able to greatly simplify the process for all franchisees. Our new Huddle House franchise in Weirton is owned by BFS Companies, a group that already runs numerous Huddle House locations in the region. Hayley Graham, their Director of Marketing, explains why they decided to open their newest location:
“We are excited to open this Huddle House in Weirton, bringing more jobs to the area and continuing with the redevelopment of downtown Weirton. This site has stood vacant for a long time, and we knew Huddle House would be the perfect fit to remedy Weirton’s need for more dining options. We’re confident the community will love to ‘huddle’ here and spend quality time together over delicious meals.”
In this case, our demographic research also indicated that Weirton was an area with lots of potential. We’re always sure to learn everything we can about prospective new territories to ensure that our franchisees will have the customer base and demand needed to open a thriving business. In this instance, the stars aligned and a new Huddle House was developed.
