Atlanta — In November 2016, Huddle House will open its first restaurant inside a hotel. The new Huddle House will be part of the Days Inn hotel in East Stroudsburg, Pa., and will become the largest in the system with a footprint of approximately 5,000 square feet.
Franchisee Surendra (Sam) Shah has owned the Days Inn location for 15 years and says that Huddle House is the perfect complement to the hotel’s existing Mexican restaurant. The expanded footprint allows for a large breakfast meeting area. With a separate outside entrance, Huddle House will be easily accessible to interstate travelers and local customers as well as hotel guests.
Huddle House has more than 400 Huddle House restaurants open or under development in 21 states, but this will be the first inside a hotel.
“This location represents a major milestone for Huddle House,” says Christina Chambers, vice president of franchise development for Huddle House. “[We are] the perfect restaurant partner for hotels, whether we are integrated into the hotel space or built as a freestanding restaurant on a pad site on the property. We expect this combination to provide real value to Sam and other hotel owners by increasing the value of their property and driving higher occupancy rates. That success should lead to many similar expansion opportunities for Huddle House and hotel owners across the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest.”
