About Us

At Inspire Brands, we pursue the unconventional. We pride ourselves on being a restaurant company unlike any other – one that brings together unique brands and aims to make them stronger than ever before.

We’re mavericks and visionaries. We spark a culture of innovation that welcomes great ideas to thrive at every level. From the restaurant to the boardroom, our team members have the freedom to take risks and think differently. After all, that’s how Inspire was founded.

Across our business, we foster a spirit of collaboration. Our platform enables our brands to listen, to learn and to build of the strengths of one another. As achievers, we share ideas, learn from our mistakes and always strive to find a better way forward.

We work alongside our franchisees as allies, bringing to the table a deep understanding of operating restaurants and an eagerness to innovate and solve our challenges together.

And as good citizens, we elevate each other and the communities we serve.

With more than 11,200 restaurants that collectively generate more than $14.4 billion in annual sales, our unique approach has made Inspire one of the largest restaurant companies in the world – and we’re just getting started.
