Company Description


This fast-food restaurant chain known for its double drive-thrus began as two separate businesses. Checkers was created in 1986 in Mobile, Alabama, and Rally's was created in 1985 in Louisville, Kentucky. The two merged in 1999 - the only differences between the two now are their names.

Rally's operates in the midwestern U.S. while Checkers is in the southeast. As of June 2016, the combined chain operates 825 restaurants throughout the United States.

Since 2014, Checkers and Rally's have been under the ownership of Sentinel Capital Partners – a New York-based investment firm that also owns T.G.I. Fridays.
