"Every single member of Country Kitchen’s corporate team is invested in franchisee success, listening to ideas and concerns. When I first purchased an existing restaurant, I didn’t think I’d be renewing in the future. However, within the first year I realized that the relationship was well worth it. They provide cost savings, training, research, menu development, marketing materials and general expertise. I’ve since opened a second location and expect to do more. Overall, I am continually impressed with the quality, knowledge and energy of the corporate team and the personalized attention and coaching my staff has received."

"Country Kitchen helped me convert an existing restaurant that was losing thousands of dollars a month into a profitable franchise. The staff made the transition go extremely smoothly, and I really appreciated the way they cared about my situation and the passion they have for the Country Kitchen business. Our food costs are now manageable, and our labor costs are moving in the right direction. With the Country Kitchen operation, I feel like we are on the right road for the first time."

"The most satisfying aspect to me is the purchasing assistance we receive. Not only does Country Kitchen International negotiate and monitor a strong purchasing program with a large national distributor, with negotiated markups, but they also secure favorable pricing from the manufacturers so the distributor marks up a smaller base price. It sure beats paying street prices, even the "50 case per year" price you get as an independent."
