Americans Love Breakfast!
It’s not just the most important meal of the day, it’s also the most popular: breakfast. According to market research firm The NPD Group, most Americans eat breakfast every single day – 361 days out of the year to be exact – which is up from 350 days a year in 2010. What’s more, the research found that out of the three meals, only breakfast experienced a growth in traffic for diners eating out. Even the recent spike in inflation hasn’t affected the demand for breakfast. The NPD Group found that while overall traffic to restaurants fell 2% in the second quarter from a year ago as inflation drove up menu prices, the only category that remained unchanged was breakfast.
Owning a Breakfast Franchise Has Never Been More Appetizing
As the old saying goes, ‘you don’t just become famous overnight,’ but Famous Toastery founders Robert Maynard and Brian Burchill came pretty darn close. In 2005, Maynard and Burchill became sick and tired of the old greasy breakfast spots that for some reason have become the norm in communities across the U.S. So, the two childhood friends asked, “Why can’t breakfast be both comfort food and healthy?” And thus, Famous Toastery was born, opening in Huntersville, North Carolina, and then expanded to a larger location in Davidson, North Carolina.
In 2013, Famous Toastery successfully began franchising and now boasts 25 locations all over the Southeast. As Americans’ demand for quality and fresh ingredients grows, Famous Toastery is primed for unprecedented expansion. Famous Toastery restaurants have become renowned in their communities for uncompromisingly fresh and decadent meals, while also creating warm and welcoming atmospheres for people to spend time with friends and family. It’s why Famous Toastery runs on the “Be Famous” mantra, which is not just about making the brand famous, but also making every single franchisee, staff member, and customer feel part of something bigger.
With the demand for a quality breakfast, brunch, and lunch dining experience showing no signs of slowing down, Famous Toastery is a brand in the right place at the right time, ready to grow. As Famous Toastery continues to expand its footprint, they are actively looking for the right team members and the right franchisees who believe in the “Be Famous” message, love serving people and being pillars in their communities, and want to have the best franchise in the marketplace.

When investing in Famous Toastery, franchise owners are buying into a blueprint that is proven to bring a beloved neighborhood establishment to their communities.
“We’ve had years and years of seeing what works and what doesn’t work,” said Brian Burchill, Founder and Chief Culture Officer. “Franchisees are coming into the system and opening up their locally owned business, and they put their trust in us to give them the platform to succeed. We want everyone to achieve their goals, including clientele, staff and their families. When I opened the first store, my goal was to establish a sense of trust with the staff, customers and franchisees. That trust enables us to be more than just a business.”
