Huddle House Opens in Kilgore, Texas

Huddle House is officially opening for business in the Kilgore, Texas, community. The new location is opening on Tuesday, October 5, and is conveniently located at 1009 N. Kilgore St. This milestone location marks the 20th Texas-based restaurant for the brand.

The diner, located in the newest CEFCO fueling station, will be locally managed by Scott Rhyne, who brings more than 20+ years of experience in the quick-service restaurant industry to the table. After gaining strong management skills during his time with Taco Bell and Applebee’s, Rhyne looks forward to joining the Huddle House and CEFCO teams to provide the Kilgore community with a new family gathering spot. Creating a welcoming environment for guests and filling the town’s need for an all-day breakfast restaurant, he is confident that the new location will find success in the community.

“I’m very excited to bring Huddle House to Kilgore in the CEFCO location that serves as a hub for locals and travelers alike. Throughout each step of the development process, the Huddle House team has been there to guide us and answer every question allowing our entrance into the system to be seamless,” says Scott Rhyne, general manager of the new restaurant. “They provided excellent support as we chose to build in a non-traditional site so that our location could access increased foot traffic. My team and I are looking forward to serving the Kilgore community hearty quality homestyle meals, providing them with a place to gather all while supporting the local economy as well.”

To ensure that customers can enjoy their homestyle meals safely, the Huddle House team has adapted the dining experience to create a safe and enjoyable environment for customers and employees. In addition to dining in, customers in Kilgore can enjoy Huddle House at home and on-the-go by ordering online through the Huddle House app. The Huddle House app is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

“We’re excited to have Scott and the Kilgore team join us at Huddle House given his strong management experience and understanding of how to effectively train a team. As a brand that greatly values expertise in the restaurant industry and a strong work ethic, we are glad to have Scott leading the charge as we expand into Kilgore,” adds Peter Ortiz, Chief Development Officer of Huddle House. “We’re confident that the new restaurant will flourish as the community seems eager to find a new gathering place for every occasion.”

Based in Atlanta, the brand has more than 300 locations open or in development.
