February 01, 2022 // Franchising.com // SAN ANGELO, Texas - The wait is over, San Angelo. Huddle House is officially here!
Huddle House, the nation’s iconic all-day breakfast restaurant and neighborhood gathering place, will officially open for business in the San Angelo community on February 1. The new restaurant is conveniently located at 3251 North Bryant Blvd off US Highway 87, marking the 21st Texas-based location for the brand.
The diner will be owned by existing multi-unit operator Bill Kent of The Kent Companies. Since 1957, Kent and his family have been serving West Texas through multiple successful business ventures, all while building up the local economy and helping to nurture the growth of their team members. The Kent Companies also values philanthropy and hosts several fundraising events for organizations in need. Most recently, the company donated over $119,000 to Permian Basin Rehabilitation Center in Odessa.
“We’re extremely proud to be partnering with Huddle House once again and strongly believe in supporting the communities that support us every day,” said The Kent Companies. “We take great pride in knowing that our Guests enjoy coming into Huddle House because of the warm and friendly atmosphere, great food and exceptional service that they receive daily. As we open the doors of our seventh location, we’re honored to continue giving back to the San Angelo community that has provided us with fellowship, close family ties and a timeless all-day breakfast restaurant that Texans have come to know and love.”

In addition to dining in, customers in San Angelo can enjoy Huddle House at home and on-the-go by ordering online through the Huddle House app. The Huddle House app is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
“Bill and his family have been partnering with Huddle House for decades, and we are proud to be supporting his company’s continued growth and impressive development efforts,” said Peter Ortiz, Chief Development Officer of Huddle House. “I have full confidence that Bill, his business partners and hardworking restaurant team will inspire the next generation of leaders through their dedication to philanthropy and operational expertise. We wish the Kent family continued success in San Angelo as they look to expand the Huddle House brand throughout additional areas in the Lone Star state.”
The brand’s flexible formats and access to the $285 billion breakfast segment make the concept an exciting prospect for multi-unit operators looking to diversify. Huddle House’s delicious all-day breakfast, southern hospitality and big portions at fair prices allow the restaurant to embed itself into every community it serves by bringing friends and families together over delicious food, served from the heart.
