Waffle House History

Waffle House was founded in 1955 by Joe Rogers, Sr., and Tom Forkner.  The first restaurant was located in Avondale Estates, Georgia.

In 1957, a second restaurant is opened.

During the 1960s, the company opens 44 more restaurants and begins to franchise.

By the end of the 1970s, there are over 400 locations.

The 1000th location is opened in 1997.

By 2005, there are 1460 locations in 25 states.

In 2006, the company finally begins to accept credit cards after being cash only.

In 2008, the Waffle House Museum opens at the site of the first restaurant.

In 2012, CEO Joe Rogers, Jr, is accused of an inappropriate sexual relationship with his housekeeper.  He is replaced as CEO by Walt Ehmer.

Today, Waffle House operates over 1700 restaurants in 25 US states.

Just had a hard days work….wife at work getting off late and tells me to find something to eat….so I’m heading home and decided to go to the waffle house because it was late and wanted something lite….sp I go to the waffle house in lake worth off hWY 199 and boat club in lake worth tx…..I walk in…no one speaks so I go wash up and find me a seat .in the store..,two rednecks and a old black chick with blonde hair…I sat there for 20 mins before
anyone notices me. I gave my order and paid close attention to the cooks. No gloves touching everything included my food and the redneck coughed in front of me and brought my waffle ….told her I was leaving and didn’t want food and she had the nerve to ask why…

I use to work for a waffle house and i reported one of the managers for such a wrong doing and they ignored me and also fired me. I have a totally different view on the waffle house and the managers that runs the store.

I am writing this in hopes that one of you big boy’s above care enough about the Waffle House business Mr, Walt, that you guys will come out from behind your desk and do something to Improve all these problems in all these review I just read along with the one I have! your store at 1862 Mars Hill Rd, Acworth Georgia 30101. Is giving your product away to all these teenaged punks that are turning your restaurant into there new hangout! It was 10:00 p.m. when I walked into to get something to eat, as I in walks, 15 of Cobb County favorite teenage punks! foul mouth “jerks” were cussing grabbing there little girl friends breast and other body parts. I turned to hear your cook shout out what the “F” Is up, to all of them, there were several young children in the store, as these punks continue to cuss with your cook throwing the “F” bomb as if its a normal word to use, I’m sure If you were setting with your family that it would upset you that they were speaking like this in front of them. as I read the reviews below, It look’s as If you guy’s don’t care either about your business, What surprised me was all of your product “FOOD” that the cook had cooked for all those punks and didn’t ask them to pay for it, AND THEY WALKED OUT AS IF THEY WERE AT HOME WITH MOM EATING DINNER!! again maybe you will read this and give a crap about your lively hood with this company, I call this theft!! I own my own company and surely don’t give my services away like what I seen given away tonight. consider this like your undercover boss! trying to let you know that your food is being given away, the service sucks, your cook stealing from you by allow those kids to walk out without paying. I hope you will have enough concern for the company and send someone under cover to check out ‘ what’s going on in your store here and around the country!
Kindest Regards
