About Our Start Up Costs
The best part of our franchise startup costs is that they include just about everything needed to get your Huddle House restaurant up and running.
Having been in business for more than 50 years, we know just what it takes to open a new franchise and we’ve developed a comprehensive investment breakdown that helps our franchisees plan for key expenses.
Buildout costs, signage, initial marketing expenses, and uniforms are just a few of the costs we’ve included in our estimated initial investment. This careful planning also reduces the likelihood of unexpected costs along the way. Independent owners don’t typically have this level of guidance and support, but buying a franchise is a great way to go into business with the power of an expert team behind you.
