Things Change. Traditions Last.
A history sweeter than pie.
Perkins Through The Years
From humble pancake beginnings to steaks and more today.
Our doors open for the first time in Cincinnati, Ohio as a pancake house and we become famous for offering two dozen kinds of pancakes and waffles-from coconut to strawberry to classic buttermilk and everything in between.
We change our name to Perkins Cake & Steak and introduce new lunch and dinner plates. Soon after, we change our name one last time to Perkins Bakery & Restaurant.
Perkins in-store bakery is born. People keep coming back for pies, pies, and more pies. Now located in over 29 states, we continue to spread kindess and homestyle cooking across the country.
Oh Canada! We officially make it international with the first Perkins opening opening in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
Perkins hits a milestone. We celebrate 60 years of serving up homestyle, comfort classics to folks with an appetite.
