Elmer's Franchise Information:

At Elmer's we're looking for a few more entrepreneurs to share our success.

Prior to opening the first Elmer's restaurant in 1960, Walter Elmer spent more than 20 years operating successful restaurants. Along the way, he decided his love of people and good food meant that his own restaurant would be more than a business venture. And apparently the public agreed. His first restaurant was an immediate success.

Today, Elmer's is a northwest family tradition. Systems have been streamlined and new services have been expanded for franchises. One thing that will never change is Walt Elmer's vision and commitment to bringing people together in a warm, friendly atmosphere and offering a family oriented menu of good food, using only the finest ingredients.

This is the formula that works as well today as it did in 1960. Today, an Elmer's franchise is your opportunity to share in our considerable success. At Elmer's, we want you to succeed. That's why we provide the finest business support program to see that you have every proven resource at your disposal.
