The Destin Log: Local Owners Make Franchising with Lennys Grill & Subs a Family Affair
Lynn and Henry De Varona have taken over the brand's Destin, Florida location and are already seeing success.
Lynn and Henry De Varona recently took over the Lennys Grill & Subs in Destin, Florida. The new owners want to make the business a family affair, with several family members already helping out at the restaurant.
“It was really all about family,” Lynn told The Destin Log. “We are centered within family, and we’re always trying to figure out how we can grow but still stay together.”
Another focus for the couple is to increase lunch catering orders and attract more tourists into the shop.
“I’m trying to reach out into the community to see what void there is we can fill,” Henry told The Destin Log.
The family plans to open a second location near Santa Rosa Beach in the future, but for now, the couple is mainly focused on training employees and running their new business.
