After a record-breaking first week at the Decatur, IL Huddle House, which opened in February 2023 and did more than $53,000 in sales, the Hazard, KY restaurant far exceeded that number, breaking the brand’s first-week sales record. The Hazard Huddle House, which opened on May 30, 2023, broke two additional records during its opening week, including the highest opening day sales and the all-time highest single sales day across the Huddle House brand.

“We are so appreciative of all the support from the Huddle House team. We are excited to bring Huddle House back to the Hazard community after two and a half years,” says Shelia Sloane, the Hazard Huddle House franchise owner.

The Hazard location also achieved a perfect 5.0-star ranking on Google to top it off. The restaurant achieved these great sales while offering only dine-in and pick-up, with delivery service yet to come.

“The success of this opening supports our business thesis that small towns are a very successful market for Huddle House,” says Troy Tracy, Brand President of Huddle House. “Hazard has a population of only about 5,000, and with this recent opening, the Huddle House brand is making a meaningful impact on the lives of the Sloanes and the Hazard community.”

Today, the brand has nearly 300 locations open or in development. Established in 1964, Huddle House remains a fan-favorite and, through the vision of its parent company Ascent Hospitality Management, remains a top choice for entrepreneurs.
