Checkers Drive In Restaurants, Inc.

About Us

With a seasoned and principled leadership and support team, along with a strong national presence, Checkers has had strong consecutive same store sales performance. Checkers and Rally's have experienced category leading system-wide same store sales for three consecutive years (fiscal 2013, 2012, and 2011).

With nearly 800 restaurants and 25 plus years' experience, Checkers is consistently ranked highest in overall value by guests in the category - thriving in both booming and retracting economies. The company owns and operates 335 restaurants to ensure both products and initiatives are tested before rollout to the franchise community. In fact, Checkers has added new product lines, such as Classic Wings and Cold Creations, while preserving its craveable food and menu simplicity. The Company has meaningfully improved restaurant profitability by implementing a nimble, metrics-driven management style and developing efficiencies across the business. The results of this new orientation are highly tangible and include more effective food cost controls and streamlined supply chain and distribution system.

Design Options

Checkers offers build-out options at multiple investment levels to help those restaurateurs of all sizes to own a business. In three short years, Checkers conceptualized and build four new restaurant formats, dramatically reducing the investment level. Formats include:

  • New freestanding prototype option
  • Inline option
  • End cap/single drive thru option
  • Conversion of an existing restaurant

These varied restaurant formats allow restaurateurs to fit Checkers on any site with compelling returns.
