Consumers Rate Shoney's as Best Value Among all Family Dining Restaurants

Brand Resurgence Continues as America's Dinner Table Voted One of the Best Eight Family Dining Restaurants; Shoney's Selected 6th Overall, Scores Well for Service, Menu Variety and Diners Being Likely to Recommend It

NASHVILLE, Tenn. June 23, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Consumers have spoken and they like Shoney's - a lot - especially when it comes to value.

Shoney's, America's Dinner Table for nearly 70 years, was voted one of the best 8 family dining restaurants in the United States in the 2016 Consumer Picks Survey via Nation's Restaurant News, placing #6 overall. In the survey, Shoney's was recognized for having the best rating for value among all family dining chains and also scored well for its service, menu variety and diners being likely to recommend it. The distinction has been the vision of Shoney's Chairman and CEO Mr. David Davoudpour.  

"For nearly 70 years, Shoney's has been dedicated to serving fresh quality foodat a great value with friendly service. To be voted as among the best family dining brands tells us we are giving our guests what they want," said Mr. Davoudpour. "And to be recognized as the best value of them all is, like we say in the industry, icing on the cake."

Mr. Davoudpour has been on a driven and spirited mission to reinvigorate and revitalize Shoney's, a family-friendly, southern-style restaurant brand. Shoney's is one of the first and has always been one of the most popular family casual dining concepts in the United States.

"I'd call it a comeback, but Shoney's has always been an iconic brand," continued Mr. Davoudpour. "Let's just say we're better than ever and continuing to improve. We're honored by the recognition but we won't be satisfied until we are the best of the best in every category."

In order to get back to what Mr. Davoudpour confidently calls Shoney's "Glory Days", the brand is now growing through franchising following an extensive revitalization effort. Shoney's is offering franchising opportunities to qualified single and multi-unit candidates. For more information, visit
