Huddle House is a casual dining franchise with 339 units in 23 different states with a concentration in the southeast United States. Huddle House announced in September 2019 that it was buying Perkins. The combination of the brands will result in a 700-restaurant operation with collective sales of about $800 million. About 220 of Perkins' units and roughly 315 of Huddle House's 351 units are franchised. Perkins will be run by Huddle House’s leadership team out of the buyer’s Atlanta headquarters. Huddle House has no plans to turn any Perkins units into Huddle Houses, nor vice versa, and indicated that both brands would be expanded.
