What Are My Startup Costs?

Start Your Own Breakfast Franchise for Less than Those Other Guys

When you take a look at the Huddle House franchise startup costs compared to the initial investment required by the competition, things stack up nicely. Starting your own Huddle House franchise costs less than franchises like IHOP and Denny’s, and is accessible, unlike corporate-owned Waffle House.

We have flexible restaurant formats, which means startup costs vary, ranging from $519,935 to $1,338,075. Factors that influence the startup costs include leasing vs. constructing a building, sizes of converting existing restaurants and re-openings of formerly closed Huddle House locations.

How Much Can I Make?

One of the most important parts of researching a new franchise 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 collate 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.
