About Us

Founded in the college town of Binghamton, NY, HOTS is a low-key, fast-casual concept serving up phenomenal American favorites… fast and hot, all day long – and late into the night.

As people with entrepreneurial mindset, we all want more time in the day doing what we love when we want to. We are capable, disciplined, and hardworking. We know we can work toward achieving our hopes and dreams without anyone watching over our shoulder. If only we have enough time.

Building a strong restaurant brand takes so much time and financial resources. The food business can be daunting and risky. Especially now, with so many challenges such as labor shortages and high supply-chain costs gumming up the works.

To leapfrog other competitors in the already crowded market, there’s really no secret but a tried and tested marketing and operations system, an all-star front- and back-of-house team, and a sensational A+ menu.

Why HOTS Franchise

  • HOTS has evolved into one of the most popular Binghamton-area restaurants
  • During the Pandemic, we have been consistently featured prominently on food delivery platforms such as Grubhub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash
  • HOTS quickly adapted to the pandemic era by speeding up training and operations to meet rising customer demand for warm comfort food in a work-from-home world
  • A huge favorite among college students and professionals
