5 & Diner is a 50's-style Diner restaurant concept offering
delicious food in a fun family-friendly environment. We love what we do and we
would like to share that love with you as a franchisee.
5 & Diner Founder....
Founder Kenny Higginbotham envisioned a place where people could escape to
and where life was simpler. So in 1989 Kenny bought a diner in Phoenix and spent
the next two years developing his concept. So the legendary 5 & Diner Restaurant
concept was born; the no-holds-barred 50's flashback theme with affordable,
top-quality food including award-winning burgers and shakes. Today Kenny's
concept continues to evolve and expand.
