Starting a Restaurant Business with Great Potential

Franchise Development

Our restaurant franchise opportunities are a perfect fit for qualified investors who are passionate about growing their own business. Here, we’ll give you more information on what it takes to invest and the potential for growth in our booming industry.


One of the most important things you should know about Perkins is that we’re dedicated to helping our franchisees build strong businesses.

While no new business comes with a guarantee of success, our experts can help guide our franchisees through the process of opening and operating their new business – helping franchisees to avoid many of the pitfalls faced by independent owners. Our time-tested business model has been carefully refined over decades and allows our franchisees to run their restaurants with maximum efficiency.


We’ve developed strong relationships with a number of third parties (like vendors and real estate experts) who can help our franchisees get great prices on the things they need to run their business. Our expertise and connections in the industry are just two of the valuable resources Perkins offers our franchisees to help them start their business off right.

A Day in the Life of a Perkins Franchisee

No two Perkins franchisees will have the same experience day to day, because they’re free to decide how hands-on they’d like to be in their business. That being said, there are a few tasks that many of our franchisees will routinely undertake, including:

Reviewing sales figures and their restaurant’s performance

Opening a Franchise Restaurant with an Industry Leader

Perkins stands out from other franchises because of the brand power we’ve built up during over half a century in business. The first Perkins opened its doors in 1958, and ever since then we’ve been fine-tuning our business model to maximize profit margins for franchisees.

It’s a Great Time to Break into the Restaurant Industry

The restaurant industry is projected to reach $889 billion in sales in 2020. American adults eat out around five times per week – that’s a lot of potential customers! Furthermore, the industry is expected to grow 50% by 2028, which is great news for investors who are looking to break into the business.
