The Franchise

 ThumbsUpDiner 02

Get Your Part Of The $77 Billion Spent On
Breakfast Dining Each Year

Not so long ago, neighborhoods had their own diners where friends and family would gather. It was comfortable, it was friendly, and it was a part of a community's fabric. So, step back to a by-gone era and let our Thumbs Up Diner family help you bring the urban diner experience to your community.

Our clientele is diverse, but they come in looking for the same thing: a good meal that's priced right and an atmosphere that can best be described as "groovy." It's part of what you feel when the front-of-the-house staff greets you by name or with a genuine big hug. Our model is set up for owners who want to be part of their community and establish a gathering place in their neighborhood.

The Business

A business that fits your lifestyle

Imagine owning a restaurant without having to worry about working late nights, dealing with alcoholic beverages or evening emergency calls. One that is closed by 4 pm each afternoon and that frees up your evenings for family, friends or doing whatever you want to do.

This is the lifestyle of Thumbs Up Diner franchise owners. It is also the lifestyle of your employees and managers — allowing you to attract a skilled and committed staff.
