Grumpy's Restaurant Seeks to Bring its Beloved Dining Experience to Georgia Through FranchisingGrumpy’s Restaurant, an award-winning full-service Americana breakfast, lunch and brunch diner, is thrilled to announce their next step in expansion by offering franchise opportunities in Savannah. Grumpy’s Restaurant is eager to expand into the Peach State with the help of passionate operators who are excited to bring the beloved brand to Savannah.

The traditional full-service Americana breakfast diner has been successfully serving the Jacksonville community since 1999 and has been franchising since 2019. On the heels of being recognized as a Top New and Emerging Franchise for 2023 by Entrepreneur, Grumpy’s Restaurant is eager to bring its popular dining experience to new communities.

Savannah is the oldest city in the State of Georgia. It is home to breathtaking architecture, a world-renowned art scene, some of the region’s richest history that dates back for centuries, as well as one of the busiest ports in the United States. The Savannah Metro area boasts a population of 414,963 people and is a notable tourist destination. Being only 2 hours away from its home base in Jacksonville, Grumpy’s believes the thriving city and its surrounding areas are perfect for the brand’s first entrance into Georgia.

“We are very selective in our growth process,” said CEO and President Daniel DeLeon. “We treat our customers like family and we want to bring Grumpy’s to areas that reflect those values. When it comes to our expansion, we focus on locations with a strong sense of community that embody what we stand for, and we are looking forward to bringing Grumpy’s to Savannah.”

With five open locations in Orange Park, Middleburg, St. John’s, Neptune Beach and Wildlight (Yulee) Grumpy’s prides itself on made-to-order and always-made-from-scratch comfort food and sweet southern hospitality all at a working-class price. Grumpy’s serves breakfast, lunch and brunch along with an array of daily and weekly chalkboard specials which include a variety of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, signature coffee, freshly squeezed juices, homemade hot chocolate and desserts.

Grumpy’s Restaurant was born out of passion and love for bringing family and friends together over great diner food. Our commitment and mission are to deliver the highest quality dining experience at an affordable price for families everywhere. Grumpy’s will never waver on our commitment to excellent home-style cooking, attention-to-detail, sweet southern hospitality and serving a hungry-person’s portion at a working-class price. All while closing at 2:00PM, providing the ultimate family, work and life balance.

Including a franchise fee of $40,000, the initial investment necessary to open a single location ranges between $645,000 and $1,585,000. Each Grumpy’s Restaurant location will occupy approximately 2,800 square feet of real estate and will have approximately 120 seats.
