  • A simply uncomplicated, one-of-a-kind menu anchored by the Original, Crave-able “Krystal”
  • A Southeastern Footprint with over 360 Company-owned and Franchised Locations
  • An iconic 80 year old distinctive Southern dining experience with a cult-like following

Requirements & Investments

Over the years, the Krystal brand has enjoyed good times and bad, surviving the Great Depression, recessions, and decades of unpredictability in the market.  Because of the dedication of our team and the quality of our food, we’ve not only survived, but thrived.

We are looking for franchisees that believe in accountability and take as much pride in serving the front of the house as managing the back of the house. There is abundant opportunity to accelerate growth domestically in the southeast and we are committed to rapidly expanding the brand.

We are actively seeking to partner with qualified individuals who possess the right mix of expertise and enthusiasm. Potential restaurant franchise candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • Possess solid business experience and acumen
  • Show proven expertise in owning or operating restaurants
  • Must have a minimum net worth of $500,000 and $250,000 in liquid assets, per restaurant
  • Make a commitment to grow with the Krystal brand
  • Previous franchise experience is advantageous

Krystal offers flexible real estate development opportunities. The two most common venues are freestanding and in-line. However, we also develop in airports, shopping malls, college/university campuses and many other non-traditional venues.
