Denny’s prides itself on being an exemplary corporate citizen working to do right by our franchisees, our guests who support our brand and our employees who are on the frontlines in our restaurants every day. Denny’s Guiding Principle, “Embrace Openness”, has led to an extraordinary 63% Minority Franchised System with company restaurant management exceeding 44% minority representation. We have been named a top 10 franchisor by Entrepreneur Magazine for the past several years, finishing first in family dining in 2012, and we take that honor seriously. Denny’s continuously looks for ways to support our local communities as well through many national and local programs such as hunger relief through the “Dine Out for No Kid Hungry” campaigns; the LULAC National Scholarship Fund; support for the Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarship programs and Habitat for Humanity to name a few.
