Checkers Prototype May Cause Real Estate Envy


Published:

Jennifer Durham is touting the new, slimmer Checkers prototype with a single drive-thru. Durham, vice president of franchise development, told an audience of finance pros at the Franchise Finance & Growth Conference it’s the secret weapon in the franchisor’s aim to create more efficiency for operators.

We wanted to take a look, and voila! they sent the accompanying photo. The 900-square-foot restaurants do not have dining rooms, so they can locate on sites as small as one-third of an acre, much smaller than competitors. The new single drive-thru format also allows them to take a narrower site than others, she said, perhaps generating some real estate envy from those hunting for scarce pad sites.
