Perkins Restaurant Franchise Training & Support

Perkins Restaurant Franchise Training & Support

Perkins offers restaurant franchise training and support to all franchisees, aligning them with our time-tested business model. While food industry or management experience is a plus, neither are necessary to run one of our restaurants – our training is designed to get everyone up-to-speed! Best of all, Perkins franchisees enjoy strong restaurant franchise support throughout the life of their business. 


We know that marketing is the key to staying on top. However, developing and implementing new campaigns can be costly and time-consuming for independent restaurant owners. Our franchisees can rely on our support here as well. Not only do we already have a cache of ready-made marketing materials to share, we also help local franchisees spread the word about their business. 


You don't have to spend time meeting new vendors and trying to establish a supply chain of fresh produce, dry goods and advertising.  We work hard to deliver the best on-going support network when you become a member of the Perkins family.

Restaurant Franchise Training

You and/or the manager of your franchise will take part in 35 days of training to prepare you to run a Perkins franchise. Training will take place in a fully-operational Perkins restaurant so you can watch our procedures in action, and get hands-on experience before returning to your franchise. A few of the principles you’ll learn include:

  • Managing finances and marketing
  • Utilizing procedures for cooks, servers, dishwashers, and other employees
  • Using our computer systems

Some franchisees (such as those who have never run a restaurant before) might also find our Franchise Orientation Program to be helpful. Participants in this program will learn the basics of operating a franchise business – it’s a great way to get your bearings in your new role!

Perkins also offers ongoing restaurant franchise training after your doors have opened. Courses and seminars (both online and in-person) will be provided from time to time to keep franchisees up-to-date on any changes to our business model and on top of best practices.

a Restaurant Franchise Support

One of the strongest reasons to open a franchise business rather than going it alone is the support you can look forward to receiving. We know that starting a new business can be stressful, but Perkins franchisees are in good hands: we’ve opened hundreds of locations since 1958, so you couldn’t ask for a team with better insight into how to make a strong start.

Our team is available to provide franchisees with guidance and answer questions in every stage of their business. We’re proud to support our franchisees before and after they’ve opened their doors.

Before opening franchisees can look forward to support like:

Site selection and buildout guidance

In-person assistance through their grand opening

Marketing help to spread the word about their new franchise

After opening we continue to support franchisees by:

Conducting research and development to keep franchises competitive

Offering operational procedures and systems designed to save them time and money

Providing regular evaluations to help them stay on track and meet goals

Assisting with local and national marketing initiatives

Of course, it goes without saying that a major benefit of partnering with Perkins is the strength of our widely-recognized brand name. With over 300 restaurants throughout the U.S. and Canada, generations of customers have enjoyed meals at their local Perkins. That familiarity is a major benefit to franchisees, and we’ll show you how to leverage it to its full potential.
