ATLANTA, GA  – Huddle House, the nation’s most iconic neighborhood diner known for its Southern hospitality and big portions at fair prices, recently commemorated its 2018 annual franchisee convention, which was held July 22-25 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Themed “Our People, Our Success,” the convention brought the entire organization together to celebrate the brand’s system-wide successes, guiding principles, sense of camaraderie and community-centric business values.

“Our National Convention is always the highlight of the year,” said Michael Abt, president and CEO of Huddle House. “We get to bring all of our franchise partners and employees from the home office together to inspire and learn from each other. The time in Ponte Vedra Beach was energizing and a solid reminder of how strong a team we all are together.”

This year’s convention celebrated Huddle House’s company-wide accomplishments during its 2018 fiscal year and challenged all attendees – franchise partners, regional marketing and field team members, corporate leadership and vendors – to continue to exceed expectations, lead by example and serve from the heart. The three-day conference included extensive training, educational seminars and opportunities to share best practices across the franchise system.

During the general sessions, Abt unveiled that system-wide sales have increased by 2.5 percent and that average unit volume has grown by more than 7 percent. In addition to this continued sales growth, Abt also noted that the 69 percent of Huddle House restaurants that have already upgraded to its new Evolution design concept are outperforming the older designs by an average of 31.3 percent. As published in the current Huddle House Franchise Disclosure Document, the top half of all Evolution design restaurants posted an impressive average annualized unit volume of $1,002,796.

Throughout the convention, Huddle House bestowed honors on top-performing franchise partners and their team members in attendance for sales, customer satisfaction, marketing achievements and superior operations over the past 12 months.

During the banquet dinner, Abt presented the highest honor, “Franchise Partner of the Year,” to Huddle House multi-unit owner Jamie Hicks. Hicks earned the recognition for setting the “gold standard” for franchise partners throughout the Huddle House system who operate with pride and excellence daily, consistently serve up hospitality to every customer, support the local community and are wholly dedicated to elevating the guest experience.

In addition to Hicks’ impressive recognition as “Franchise of the Year,” several other Huddle House restaurant owners earned awards, such as “Best of the Best,” “Served from the Heart,” “Million Dollar Club,” “Star Marketing” and more.

Based in Atlanta, Huddle House restaurants have earned adoration in their communities for their warm, friendly atmospheres where every conversation, sip of coffee and bite of home-cooked meals are savored.

Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. Announces Robot Installations Across 32 North American Cities

2018-08-28T14:39:53-04:00August 28th, 2018|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |


Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OCTQB: VEND) announced today that the company is ramping production and delivery of its proprietary Reis & Irvy’s robotic frozen dessert vending kiosks after a brief delay that forced the company to redesign two key components.

By mid-August, the company had successfully delivered 15 units to franchisees in twelve cities across nine U.S. states as well as the province of Alberta, Canada. “After these initial installations, our Franchisee Support Team, in close contact with our franchisees, made us aware of two separate issues. The first issue was that we identified candy toppings ‘ricocheting’ out of the dispensing chute, resulting in the toppings, in some cases, landing outside of the cup, this resulted in the second issue which was the spillage becoming visible in the base of the unit. As a result, we decided to pause production in order to resolve this issue, which involved the design, prototyping and manufacturing of a newly-designed candy dispenser and drip tray. After thorough testing, we’re confident the new components have addressed the issues, and both previous and existing installations have been upgraded with the new components,” said Generation NEXT Franchise Brands Chairman and Founder, Nick Yates. “We believe we have passed our last design hurdle and we are now moving closer towards full-scale production.”

Locations, Locations, Locations

“We expect approximately 40 finished units to roll off the factory floor this week alone,” Yates added. “We anticipate these units will be delivered to franchisees in more than two dozen U.S. cities over the next 30 days or less.”

Notable locations scheduled for installation over the next 14 days include the Indianapolis Airport (Indianapolis, IN), Dallas Stars Hockey Club (Plano, TX), Houston Baptist University (Houston, TX), First Class Concessions at Fort Wayne International Airport (Fort Wayne, IN), University of New Mexico (Albuquerque, NM), Texas State University (San Marcos, TX), Gulfport High School (Gulfport, MS), Discovery Center (Boise, ID), Columbia Mall (Bloomsberg, PA), Groupon HQ (Chicago, IL), Bluegreen Vacations – Club 36 (Las Vegas, NV), Springfield Mall (Springfield, PA), Laserdome (Manheim, PA), Mockingbird Valley Indoor Soccer Club (Louisville, KY), Wayne State University (Detroit, MI), Oklahoma Christian University (Oklahoma City, OK), North East Mall (Hurst, TX), The Amazium (Fayetteville, AR), Porter Adventist Hospital (Denver, CO) and Quantum Leap (Johnson City, TN).

An Industry Disruptor

With over $170 million in franchise and licensing contracts, Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCBB: VEND) is leading the way with frozen desserts, fully autonomous robotic delivery, visual and audio entertainment, and a unique retail experience.

IRVINE, CA – Whether in a sandwich or a salad, The Habit Burger’s Golden Fried Chicken delivers satisfying crunch and big flavor in every bite. For a limited time only, The Habit Burger is bringing back the Golden Fried Chicken Salad, giving fans of their hand-breaded, buttermilk battered, perfectly seasoned golden fried chicken the option of a sandwich or salad.

The Golden Fried Chicken Salad is inspired by the fan-favorite Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich, which permanently joined The Habit menu in late 2016. The Golden Chicken Salad starts with a buttermilk battered, hand-breaded sliced chicken breast, served atop fresh garden greens, with feta cheese, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, red onions, carrots and cilantro, and is then tossed in a house-made Southwest-inspired cilantro lime ranch dressing.

The Habit’s golden chicken is hand-dipped into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, not just once but twice, before being fried to perfection and custom made to order for both the salad and the sandwich.

The Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich features a fresh filleted chicken breast, cooked to a juicy golden brown and topped with creamy spiced red pepper sauce, lettuce tomatoes and pickles and served on a fresh bun.

Better burgers are just the beginning at The Habit where signature Charburgers are always made with 100% fresh ground beef, never frozen and chargrilled over an open flame. The Habit’s signature Charburgers, grilled sandwiches, fresh salads, delicious sides, and handmade shakes are always made to order.

2018-08-24T14:55:38-04:00August 24th, 2018|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |


PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that Senior Vice President John-Reed McDonald was named one of Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2018 “40 Under 40” list of up-and-coming staffing industry leaders. This prestigious list honors trailblazers who have rapidly achieved remarkable success in an ever-evolving workforce ecosystem.

John-Reed joined PrideStaff in 2007 as a Vice President – Field Consultant. In this role, he developed new sales processes for the PrideStaff system, assisted PrideStaff’s COO in creating a three-week training program for all newly opened PrideStaff offices, and was responsible for managing the profitability and growth of his assigned offices. In 2011, he was promoted to Senior Vice President and became a member of PrideStaff’s executive team. He currently also serves on PrideStaff’s Brand Advisory Council, providing direction to help shape the organization’s future.

“We were thrilled to learn that our colleague and friend John-Reed was named to SIA’s ’40 Under 40′ list of staffing industry leaders,” said PrideStaff COO Tammi Heaton. “His hard work, innovation and leadership have helped shape several advances of the PrideStaff system, while earning our organization coveted spots on SIA’s list of the Top 100 Largest U.S. Staffing Firms five times, and on SIA’s Fastest-Growing U.S. Staffing Firms in 2015 and 2016.

“Though John-Reed has quickly assembled an admirable record of success, he is not content to rest on his laurels,” continued Heaton. “Each day, he shares his passion and industry insights with our team, works hard to ensure PrideStaff’s continued growth, and lives out our corporate mission to ‘consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.'”

The success of PrideStaff’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry.
