Huddle House Franchise

Homestyle restaurant

Huddle House started in Atlanta in the 1960s. The restaurants cater to travelers, with co-branded interstate locations at gas stations such as Exxon, BP, Citgo, Shell and Texaco. All franchises are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and offer breakfast, lunch and dinner at any time of day. Menus feature steaks, chicken, pork chops and seafood.

Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, it’s
everyone’s favorite. When you package a homestyle meal that everyone
loves with amazing Southern hospitality, a half-century of tradition and
a lively American diner that serves any meal of the day at any time of
the day, you have Huddle House - America’s iconic breakfast franchise.

At Huddle House, customers are always welcome, and they’re usually
greeted by name. Decatur, GA, was just a little farm town back in 1964
when founder John Sparks first came up with the idea for Huddle House.
He saw a group of boys after football practice, huddling up in his
restaurant, helmets and footballs still in hand. Sparks envisioned a
place where the community could gather, or huddle up, any time.

The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Huddle House
franchise is $510,435 to $1,379,575 for a New Development Unit when
leasing the land and building and purchasing the equipment and signs.
This includes $83,490 to $113,490 that must be paid to the franchisor or
its affiliates.
If you sign a development agreement for the opportunity
to develop multiple Huddle House franchises (the franchisor does not
specify a minimum number to be eligible for a development agreement),
you will pay a development fee for the rights to those development
opportunities. The development fee will vary depending on the number of
Huddle House Restaurants you are committed to develop, and is calculated
as the total of the $35,000 for your first franchise and $17,500 for
each additional franchise to be developed (the development fee is
separate from the initial franchise fee).
The total investment necessary
under a Market Development Agreement (based on a commitment of two to
three Huddle House Restaurants) ranges from $55,000 to $72,500. This
includes $52,500 to $70,000 that must be paid to the franchisor.
