What are my Startup Costs?

Huddle House is one of the most affordable breakfast franchises

For new restaurant development, Huddle House franchisees typically need a minimum liquidity of $200,000 and a minimum net worth of $600,000. Investments can range from $620,011 to $1.3 million depending on whether you are remodeling an existing restaurant or you are purchasing land and building from scratch. One of our franchise development specialists can provide more detailed information.

Here’s a look at the startup costs as outlined in Item 7 of our latest Franchise Disclosure Document. Keep in mind these ranges include the lowest amount a franchisee invested in a Huddle House to the highest.

Some franchisees lease the land. Huddle House franchisees not only enjoy cash flow from their restaurant operations, they may increase their potential equity by buying land and building a restaurant.
