A Unique Franchising Opportunity

Ruby's Diner, Inc.

What started out as an old, dilapidated bait shop on Balboa Pier in Southern California and a BIG idea has turned into an iconic brand that has been spreading “Ruby Magic” for more than three decades. Ruby’s Diner has become one of the most admired and beloved brands on the west coast by serving high quality American Cuisine with best in class service.

Ruby’s is ready to spread the Ruby Magic throughout the United States and beyond with two exciting platforms; the new 60’s themed fast casual restaurant and the classic full service mid-century themed diner. All the “Best of Ruby’s” is now offered in the 40’s themed classic full service diner as well as in a smaller fast casual model which allows for an economically attractive startup without sacrificing all the attributes that makes Ruby’s great.

This next generation of Ruby’s combines all the fun and eccentricity of the early 1960’s with Ruby Magic to create a truly unique dining experience.

Why Ruby's?
