Greg Flynn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, founded Flynn Restaurant Group (FRG) in 1999 as the owner and operator of eight Applebee’s in Washington State. Over the next 16 years, Greg strategically charted the course of the business to develop and acquire more than 850 restaurants that together represent $1.9 billion in sales.
While the initial focus was on growing within the Applebee’s system, the company gradually branched out into other brands first adding Taco Bell in 2013 followed by Panera in 2015 where it was first new franchise admitted into the system in over 10 years.
Today, through its three wholly-owned subsidiaries, Apple American Group, Bell American, and Pan American, the company owns and operates over 480 Applebee's, 270 Taco Bells, and 130 Paneras directly employing 40,000 people in 28 states. Combined this makes FRG the largest restaurant franchise brand, and
one of the 50 largest foodservice companies in the United States.
The company proudly stands by Greg’s operating philosophy to provide friendly service, cultivate customer loyalty and make sure each guest has a quality experience. This mindset permeates all aspects of the business and has helped to establish a highly inclusive and collaborative culture – the team has a sense of pride and a deep connection with the company’s mission and success.
Going forward the company plans to continue its aggressive growth by building and acquiring additional restaurants as well as opportunistically expanding into other brands and businesses.
