Huddle House, the nation’s iconic all-day breakfast restaurant and neighborhood gathering place, officially opened for business in the Andrews community on December 7. The new restaurant is conveniently located at 1390 US Highway 385 in front of the Cobblestone Hotel & Suites, marking the 20th Texas-based location for the brand.

The diner is owned and operated by local couple Robert and Cassandra Johns, who built their new Huddle House restaurant from the ground up with the help of their construction company, DBR Custom Builders, LLC. Both combat veterans, the Johnses are also active church members who are passionate about service, spending time with their five children and giving back to their community.  

“We’re thrilled to be entering into the restaurant industry and bringing Huddle House’s all-American diner concept to our hometown of Andrews,” says Cassandra. “We were instantly drawn to the restaurant’s warm hospitality and delicious homestyle meals, which have quickly become fan-favorites among locals. We’re extremely grateful for the leadership team’s thoughtful support as we’ve introduced a new go-to breakfast spot for the community to enjoy.”

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 Andrews 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.

“Robert and Cassandra perfectly embody our mission of bringing friends and family together over freshly prepared food, served from the heart,” says Peter Ortiz, Chief Development Officer of Huddle House. “It’s truly incredible that guests can come into the restaurant knowing it was built from the hands of a couple with a passion for serving their community. We wish the Johnses continued success as they begin their ownership journey with Huddle House.”

As the couple looks ahead, Robert and Cassandra plan to open additional Huddle House locations in the future. The brand’s flexible formats and access to the $285 billion breakfast segment make the concept an exciting prospect for multi-unit operators looking to diversify. Huddle House’s delicious all-day breakfast, Southern hospitality and big portions at fair prices allow the restaurant to embed itself into every community it serves by bringing friends and families together over delicious food, served from the heart.

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