The Huddle House Investment
What are the startup costs?
Start Your Breakfast Franchise for Less than those Other Guys
Huddle House isn’t trendy and therefore doesn’t go out of style. We possess an “evergreen” value proposition: well-priced, well-portioned traditional meals, open kitchen and table service with a smile. We diversify our revenue over four day parts: breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night.
We’ve been a favorite diner in the South since the 1960s, and now we’re expanding into new markets across the United States. Aside from typical metropolitan centers, we thrive in the smaller towns that other chains deem too small to service. By creating a “first-to-market” opportunity in these smaller, rural towns, we establish ourselves as the place to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late nights and weekends and build fierce brand loyalty with the communities we serve.
Multiple Investment Types
Huddle House offers flexible store types for different investment goals.
- Build a freestanding restaurant and own the land
- Lease a shopping center end-cap restaurant
- Add a full-service restaurant to a truck stop, gas station, or hotel property

About Our Start Up Costs
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.

How Much Can I Make as a Franchisee?
One of the most important parts of researching a new franchise investment is taking a close look at the earnings potential, and we want to make sure every qualified franchise candidate has access to the information they need to make an informed decision. Every year, we gather and collect our sales information and include it in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Once you fill out our contact form, you’ll be provided a copy of our Franchise Information Guide, which will include Financial Performance Representations from our FDD that explain the average Huddle House franchise earnings.
Our multiple restaurant formats and flexible business model provide opportunities for single and multi-unit operators alike.
