Why Choose a Convenience Store Concept?
Huddle House offers numerous flexible franchise concepts, so our franchisees can set up shop wherever there’s optimal potential within their community. We’ve found that convenience stores and travel stops are especially great locations for new Huddle House franchises. For one thing, they’re often community hubs in the small towns where our brand has traditionally thrived. People frequent these locations to fill up on gas or grab a snack, so they’re often centrally-located as well.
Furthermore, these locations often draw people who are just passing through town. Truck drivers, day-trippers, and vacationers constantly use travel stops and convenience stores to stretch and take a break from the road. Huddle House is a welcomed sight to travelers who are looking for a great meal that’s a cut above the drive-throughs that dot every interstate. Our low prices and speedy service keep us competitive with fast food restaurants, so setting up in convenient places for this demographic has proven to be a fantastic strategy.
Every Huddle House restaurant is similar but also completely unique, and we work with our franchisees to iron out details as to whether they should choose a location in a freestanding space or one that is connected directly to a convenience store, for example. Franchisees are also free to build new spaces from the ground up. This can be on land they already own or if it makes sense it might be more suitable to lease their new property. Whatever they choose, potential franchisees can count on our team to provide them with proper guidance throughout the real estate selection as well as the build-out process.
