“We are thrilled to announce our latest Denny’s restaurant opening and the continuation of our development plans, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic,” said Mr. Larach, Denny’s franchisee. “Denny’s is a family favorite, and we are excited about the growth potential for the brand in the region over the next several years.”
Steve Dunn, Denny’s Senior Vice President & Chief Global Development Officer, added, “Denny’s is one of the largest family-dining chains across the globe, and we are delighted by the continued growth in Central America. We look forward to finding additional qualified partners like Mr. Larach and his team to further expand Denny’s international footprint.”
