“Roy Rogers has a franchise model that makes ownership attractive. It you`ve ever considered owning a franchise and are interested in a unique and challenging opportunity with a brand that is experiencing a resurgence, then Roy Rogers is worth serious consideration. Our guests really love our products. Not just like them, but love them. Our quality food and our unique Fixin`s Bar® allow our guests an opportunity for individual creations. I find it very rewarding to be associated with such positive experiences. This work may not be the easiest thing you`ve ever done, but you`ll love coming to work. I feel completely supported by our corporate office, while at the same time, I appreciate the independence I have. At the end of the day, I am backed by a reputable, fast growing company that will look out for my best interests.”

“The best thing about being a Roy Rogers franchisee is the access we have to corporate. We have good communications with and support from them. The Roy Rogers Restaurants legacy is a valuable asset in our business. People come in all the time saying things like, “My grandpa used to take me to Roy Rogers every Saturday after Little League. Now I bring my kids here.” That nostalgia builds a great base of business for each location, one that we can build on by bringing in new customers looking for high quality and great variety at an affordable price. The thing that excited us most about the brand was that it had this great legacy and we really felt it was poised to make a comeback. Corporate has done a good job of re-imagining the stores for today’s guest. I think that’s what we saw as the upside. We were going to have significant opportunities for growth. We’re working towards that now. I had a Master’s Degree in mechanical engineering and was designing aerospace and auto parts and analyzing them. This is a very different career path than I anticipated, but I wanted to control my own destiny and there are fewer opportunities for significant growth in engineering than in owning a Roy Rogers franchisee, where my earning and growth potential is more directly related to my own drive and desire to grow.”
