Franchise Details

Limited franchising opportunities available



The demand is growing for hot, homestyle meals that people can pick up and take home to their families after a long day. After launching our own carry-out service, we recognized that this was more than just an addition to our dine-in facility. Instead, we see it as an exciting opportunity to grow our brand family and bring the food that everyone knows and loves to more communities.


By becoming a Gray Brothers Cafeteria Carry-out franchisee, you’ll be able to own and operate independently and benefit from our support along the way. Gray Brothers Cafeteria Carry-out is a unique opportunity for franchisees to bring food that everyone wants but cannot find in a normal fast-food chain. As a carry-out franchise, you’ll have low overhead and higher margins.
