Although named after the famous cowboy, the Roy Rogers restaurants were actually developed by the Marriott Corporation. The name was chosen because the owners believed Roy Rogers represented basic, simple, “down home” American tastes. Their plan was to serve burgers, fried chicken, and roast beef sandwiches.
Today’s menu items include breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes. You can also choose salads, desserts, drinks, and side dishes. The KIDS MEALS include apple slices and a choice of any of the side dishes. If dining in the restaurant doesn’t quite meet your family’s needs for a particular occasion, you might take advantage of their catering service.
You will find that some Roy Rogers restaurants are cafeteria style while others are set up as the typical fast-food diner. The differences seem to be primarily based on the origins of each establishment.
As of 2002 Roy Rogers Restaurants offers franchise opportunities. Getting started requires a sizable investment and a commitment to a 15 year agreement. If you have an interest in running your own restaurant, franchise options do offer the advantage of name recognition.
The atmosphere created in the Roy Rogers Restaurants is one of relaxed, family-friendly comfort. The focus from the beginning has been to appeal to families who are seeking familiar, popular, kid-friendly meals.
