SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Family dining chain Denny’s Corp. announced the opening of its first restaurant in Guatemala. This new addition marks the 13th country in the chain’s global restaurant portfolio.
“We’re excited to continue the growth of the Denny’s brand internationally and execute on our goal of being the world’s largest, most admired and beloved family of local restaurants,” said John Miller, Denny’s President and CEO.
The new restaurant is owned and operated by Honduras-based franchisee, Comidas Especializadas S. de R.L., led by franchisee Roberto Larach. Comidas Especializadas S. de R.L. currently operates five Denny’s restaurants in Honduras and one in El Salvador. In addition, Comidas Especializadas S. de R.L. currently operates 60 Pizza Hut locations and 15 KFC restaurants in Honduras.
“Mr. Larach and his group are incredible brand ambassadors in Central America and have built a strong following for Denny’s,” said Miller.
“For years, we have been bringing American restaurant concepts to Central America and are thrilled to share Denny’s with the residents and visitors of Guatemala,” Larach said. “Denny's is an outstanding brand, with a great menu and a business model like no other brand in the industry. With restaurants in Honduras and El Salvador, Guatemala was the natural next step in our plan to bring the brand to more guests in the region.”
