Become Our Next Success StoryOur franchisees are a huge part of what has made Shoney’s a great American icon. We’re growing fast, and if you’re looking for a proven franchise with global opportunity, we’d love to have you aboard.
Throughout our 75+ years, Shoney’s franchisees have accomplished plenty, doing very well for themselves and their families along the way—opening restaurants, creating jobs, satisfying diners and giving back to their communities. They’ve created legacies and inspired additional entrepreneurs like themselves, offering financial independence for people across generations.
Tested and proven over decades of success, Shoney’s has a recognizable footprint and brand that will help it expand. Single restaurant locations (new builds or conversions of existing real estate) are available to ambitious entrepreneurs in the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond.
Shoney’s is reinvigorated, redesigned and ready to become a global dining destination. The new Shoney’s offers more than ever before. We have a great new menu and updated buffet bar filled with healthy and delicious selections. The décor has been completely revamped and in select locations we serve beer, wine and mixed drinks. Join us on the journey to become America’s Go-To restaurant and know that we are dedicated to the support and success of our franchise partners.
