CHARLIE GRAINGERS franchise opportunities

75 Years after Charlie Grainger, himself, opened his hot dog stand at 702 S. 17th St. in Wilmington, North Carolina, the brand is ready to expand nationwide. Charlie Graingers is 75 years in the making, our Founder, Louis North, has been in the business for 40 years, perfecting the craft and creating the best restaurant opportunity on the market. With over 350 locations scheduled to open across the country, Charlie Graingers is poised to be the next great restaurant concept! 


Charlie Graingers is a truly unique franchising opportunity. Our management team has over 40 years in restaurant experience coupled with 15 years in franchising experience. We have built Charlie Graingers to be the easiest and most profitable restaurant franchise opportunity available. 

The Charlie Graingers Top 5:

  • Reasonable Investment - Most Charlie Graingers' restaurants will cost between $150k - $250k.
  • Small Spaces - Most Charlie Graingers locations will be less than 1500 sqft. Less space means lower overhead. 
  • Easy Management - Most stores will have a staff of less than five employees. 
  • Simple Menu - Our menu consists of sandwiches, hot dogs, soups and sides. We keep it simple, we keep it fresh, we keep our customers happy.
