Entrepreneur magazine selects Grumpy’s as one of its Top New, Emerging Franchises


Posted

CLAY COUNTY – Grumpy’s Restaurant, an award-winning full-service Americana breakfast, lunch and brunch diner, was recognized as one of the Top New and Emerging Franchises for 2023 in the May/June issue of Entrepreneur magazine. The ranking highlights some of the most substantial companies that have begun offering franchise opportunities in the last five years.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized as one of 2023’s Top New Franchises,” said Daniel DeLeon, President and CEO of Grumpy’s Restaurant. “This would not be possible without our amazing franchise partners and team members within the Grumpy’s family, and we look forward to providing more communities with excellent home-style cooking, attention to detail, and sweet southern hospitality.”

The flagship restaurant is located at 834 Kingsley Ave. in Orange Park. A second Clay County restaurant opened at 1805 Blanding Blvd. in Middleburg in 2020.

The Top New and Emerging Franchises ranking is based on information submitted to Entrepreneur for its annual Franchise 500 and is part of the brand’s continuing effort to understand best and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace. Companies featured on the 2023 list have been offering a franchise opportunity for five years or fewer and were assessed across multiple data points, including unit growth, startup costs and fees, training and support, the parent company’s financial stability, and brand strength.

“The franchise industry is full of big new ideas, which is why Entrepreneur’s Top New and Emerging list is always so exciting,” said Entrepreneur editor-in-chief Jason Feifer. “If anyone’s looking to get in on the ground floor of the next big thing, they should start with the brands we’ve identified – that are all full of creativity, innovation, and accessibility for aspiring entrepreneurs.”
