“To someone who is interested in owning a Lennys franchise, I say go for it. I am a 28-year-old business owner on the right track for a successful future. I never thought of myself being a business owner or my own boss, and knowing that my success depends 100% on me only makes me work that much harder. But it is a two-way street, and you need a great coach to mentor you. Lennys Corporate is nothing short of that. They have answers to all of your questions. They provide help with paperwork, marketing, IT issues, business questions; they do it all. Even though my store is far from Memphis, they have always made us feel like family. They don’t know you by your store number, but by your name. And they build an individual relationship with all of the franchisees. What more could you ask for?” DHARA PATAL, DETROIT, MICHIGAN
“My Lennys restaurant has become enormously popular because we’re a meaningful part of the community. I know the guests that come in regularly, and I know their families. They come here not because of our great food, but because of our ability to go above and beyond in connecting with our guests. This is also how we’ve been able to establish a profitable niche because while many restaurants have great food, very few have both the food and the customer service. My crew is really exceptional, and my general manager Nick has excelled so much that he is going to be my partner in the next Lennys restaurant that we open.” ANDY MCGEE, MOBILE, ALABAMA
"After tasting the food in a franchise location in Tampa, Florida, I knew I would be successful. Lennys makes the best tasting sub sandwiches in the industry, and that we’re able to pair that food with exceptional customer service is the difference that catapults Lennys ahead of the competition." JIM HARMER, POLK COUNTY, FLORIDA
“We’ve been in this business for a long time, and all the stores that we’ve opened, the business has been good to us. We’ve sold a few of our stores to our former general managers, which speaks to our family values. I feel really good about the future of Lennys. I think the new executive team is going to help the brand grow and flourish. We’re in the people business. We just happen to sell subs.” DON BOMAR, BARTLETT, TENNESSEE
