Tennessee Franchise Opportunities in Athens
Are you looking to start a new business in the Athens, Tennessee area? Huddle House’s non-traditional business model is a perfect fit! Huddle House has a long history of thriving in rural communities just like Athens because our Southern-inspired restaurants often become favorites among locals and travelers alike. Here, read on and learn why Athens has great potential for our new Huddle House franchisees.
The Right Customers for Strong Unit Economics
Athens is a small town of just under 15,000 located about three hours east of Nashville, TN. Many of the town’s residents work in manufacturing, construction, or retail. Despite its small population, Athens is home to dozens of churches, and regular services are an important part of the town’s culture.
All of these combined factors show that Athens would make an ideal location for the next Huddle House franchise. Additionally, Huddle House restaurants are often open 24-hours-a-day, making them especially popular with employees who are working odd hours – such as those in manufacturing, retail, and construction. Furthermore, Huddle House restaurants have always been popular among church groups and other community gathering organizations looking for places to grab a bite to eat.
Of course, churches aren’t the only community groups in Athens. Local McMinn County High School is home to multiple fine arts clubs (such as band and choir) along with numerous sports teams. Cheerleading, track, and football are just a few of the many McMinn County High School teams participating in competitions throughout a given year. Huddle House was conceived as a place where high school athletes could meet up, and our restaurants are still favorites with this paricular demographic. We know that local students will love our flexible hours, low prices, and supportive community spirit!
As you can see, there are lots of potential customers in Athens, and these small towns can really do well with our guidance.
A Popular Destination for Travelers
Athens is located along I-40 W, I-24 W, and I-75 N. These major freeways take countless travelers through Athens every single day on their way to and from Nashville, Chattanooga, and nearby Jackson.
This is another great indicator for prospective franchisees, as Huddle House is the perfect diner franchise for convenience stores or even hotels. Our flexible location requirements make it easy to open new franchises as part of hotel locations or truck stops as freestanding stores or built into existing storefronts.
Road trippers and professional drivers alike are some of our best customers. They love that they can stop at Huddle House to stretch their legs and enjoy a freshly-made meal at a great price before getting back on the road. Athens’ proximity to multiple major freeways makes it a fantastic spot to cater to these specific customers!
