You work with Denny’s field-based real estate team to identify ideal sites and obtain corporate site approval (see site guidelines).  We use sophisticated site analysis tools that help franchisees assess sites based on trade area demographics and competitive intelligence.

After your site is approved, you sign a site specific Franchise Agreement and begin developing your site.  Denny’s Design & Construction department can adapt the latest prototypical design to meet your site.  Our exterior sketches and floor plan layouts can be used by your architect to create construction documents, reducing your costs and streamlining the Denny’s approval process.  You oversee the build out of your site, working with Denny’s to ensure you adhere to our image standards and operational requirements.

Denny’s provides a 13-week management training program for you and your managers (as applicable) that cover all aspects of operating and managing a Denny’s restaurant.  We also provide a New Restaurant Opening (NRO) training crew that will assist in all areas of restaurant operations and in training your personnel.

Denny’s support team assists you as you prepare to open your store.  A field marketing manager will provide guidance as you plan a Grand Opening campaign and local store marketing. Congratulations on opening your Denny’s restaurant!
