They are excellent operators that have grown their business and communities while positively challenging our thinking, and always representing the brand at a high level of excellence," said Troy Tracy, Brand President and Chief Operating Officer for Huddle House. "We are thrilled to continue to grow with them and their commitment speaks to their belief in a brand that has stood the test of time and is worth investing in for the future."

Danny and Justin opened their first Huddle House location in Poplar Bluff, MO in 1996, and opened their second location in Dexter, MO in 2017. Harwell Holdings specializes in restaurant operations and management.

"It's been such an exciting and rewarding journey to be part of the Huddle House brand and we are thrilled to add to its growth by opening a new location in Sikeston," said Danny Harwell, Member of Harwell Holdings LLC.

Huddle House offers franchise partners a robust support system to ensure their success from the planning stages through launch and into future operations.
