Multiple Revenue Streams Across Four Day Parts

Multiple Revenue Streams Across Four Day Parts

Although Perkins first started out as a pancake house in 1958, we soon expanded to become a popular restaurant and bakery franchise that offers a full menu at any time of day. We’ve devoted considerable resources to developing a menu that caters to all tastes and dayparts including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night.

Not only is our menu popular with diners, but customers also love that they can purchase bakery items to take home and enjoy with family and friends. This adds to our multiple revenue streams including dine in, takeout and delivery. Our franchise opportunity allows qualified investors to leverage our brand name and legacy into a winning business strategy.

Our Franchisees Say It Best

Wayne Walburg

“I’ve been a part of the Perkins family for more than 40 years, so when the opportunity arose to take ownership of our successful corporate location in Winter Park, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. Perkins has been a popular gathering spot here for many years with a strong reputation in the community and I look forward to ensuring that Perkins remains a mainstay in Winter Park for many more years to come.”

Jim Rahfaldt

“Perkins is a brand that has been a strong part of my life both personally and professionally. Having grown with the brand, I truly take its mission of serving kindness daily to heart. Our team is looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors in Cheyenne and will strive every day to provide them with the excellent service they have come to expect at this location for the past 25 years. We are excited to begin a new chapter in the history of this restaurant together."

Russell Berner

“I left the big city for a more wholesome, rural community life. I was able to use what I had learned to enhance our role in the franchise space and help JDK grow to be the largest Perkins franchisee. We acquired 15 Perkins locations in 2000, doubling our size. In 2019-2021 we did that again. We learned how to nurture relationships, bid on opportunities when needed, and navigate the courts."
