America’s iconic Southern diner franchise, Huddle House, announced today that it is spreading its adored small-town charm in Bainbridge with plans to open a new location in the area. To simplify the opening process, the brand has fast tracked development and identified a potential site for interested franchisees in Bainbridge.

“We’ve fought hard in 2020 to maintain our place in our communities and be a spot that locals can depend on, no matter what. Now we see Bainbridge as the logical next step in resuming our growth strategy,” said Tim Linderman, Chief Development Officer of Huddle House. “To take it a step further, our real estate team has already identified a site, which should save substantial time in getting a Huddle House restaurant up and running and serving the community as soon as possible.”

The proposed Huddle House site is located between S. Boulevard Dr. and E. Shotwell St. The site in Bainbridge has already been identified and should shorten the development timeline for the future franchisee.

Based in Atlanta, the brand has a strong presence in the South and is planning to continue its expansion into select regions, which includes Bainbridge.
