Karen’s Diner is a Global casual dining brand designed to bring out the KAREN in all of us! We focus on service or more specifically poor service but done in a humorous way. The Fast Casual dining restaurant space is pretty bland with very little personality. Our Restaurants are a combination of the traditional American diner style food and beverages, served with a good dose of irreverence.
There’s a little Karen in all of us but as a business opportunity, here’s why you need to join us!
FRANCHISE FLEXIBILITY: We have operated successfully in pop-up locations on short term leases, and we negotiate lease terms to suit us not the landlord, so you’re not locked into long term leases unless you want to.
CUSTOMER SERVICE: We’re famous for our terrible service for our in-store customers but rest assured the way we service our franchisees is world class, after all we‘re doing this around the globe and your success is our success.
EXPERIENCE: Our founders have extensive experience in the Hospitality and Events sector with experience creating different, novel, and exciting events that appeal to a wide audience across the globe. To date we've produced over 2000 events in 36 different cities, and we have opened 7 venues in 3 continents! Our customer experience is famous, we know how to show people a good time through food and irreverent fun.
OUR BRAND (SOCIAL MEDIA): We dominate on social media, and we have the best marketing team in the world – Our Customers! Our customers love the experience and share it with the world, it’s not uncommon for us to get engagement on social media posts in the millions of viewers.
SALES & PROFITABILITY: Our existing store network ranks highly in comparison to every other fast casual dining concept in the country with regards to sales and profitability. Our entry costs are low, so your return on capital is significant.
GLOBAL SUCCESS STORY: Our concept has been a proven success on three continents and growing. We have operated through a company owned model because it’s such a great business but now we are offering the opportunity for other Karen’s to benefit from our success.
