LEADING OWNER + OPERATOR OF THREE PREMIER RESTAURANT FRANCHISES

Flynn Restaurant Group began in 1999 with just 8 Applebee’s locations in Seattle and has grown to become the largest restaurant franchisee in the United States. In the process, we’ve built something unique and have demonstrated the success franchisees can have at scale.

  • 881 Restaurants

    We strive to set the standard for excellence in service and quality for every single guest at every single restaurant.

  • $1.9 Billion Annually

    Our growth fuels our commitment to continually invest in our employees and giving back to our communities.

  • 39,829 Employees

    We recruit and retain great people and empower them to do their jobs to the highest levels of success and quality.

THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS AND A HISTORY OF GROWTH

Flynn Restaurant Group’s unique recipe for success has led to >30% annual growth for nearly two decades. While our initial focus was on growing within the Applebee’s system, we then branched into Taco Bell in 2013 followed by Panera in 2015, giving us a presence across the three major segments of the industry – Casual Dining, Quick Services, and Fast Casual.
