In addition to reducing interest costs, this refinancing allows the Company to further strengthen its balance sheet with more flexibility to create additional value for stockholders.”About Denny’s Denny's is one of America's largest full-service family restaurant chains, currently operating 1,685 franchised, licensed, and company-owned restaurants across the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, Honduras, Guam, Curaçao, Puerto Rico and New Zealand.
