WARREN — A new restaurant that will operate 24/7 will open at the end of May in Warren, bringing new dining options as well as jobs.

The Huddle House, a family restaurant that will serve breakfast all day, as well as lunch and dinner, will open in the existing Warren Travel Plaza. The business will be located at 7270 S. Warren Road.

The restaurant has over 360 locations in 23 states and is named after the act of huddling in football.

The chain was started in 1964 in Decatur, Ga., by John Sparks, with the goal of providing a 24-hour eatery.

Owner Kulwinder Singh, Indianapolis, also owns the Huddle House in Austin, Indiana. He also owned Koger Kountry Cafe for three years in Stilesville, Ind. There are Huddle Houses in New Haven and Lebanon, Ind.

He said that having the facility close to Interstate 69 and Ind. 5 is an ideal location to bring truck traffic. He said he hopes the restaurant will be embraced by the community.

“We want to provide a nice family restaurant and a relaxing dining experience for all ages,” Singh said.

Singh has owned the Warren Travel Center for the past year and a half. A family Indian restaurant is currently located in the building. Plans are to separate the two restaurants under the same roof.

The building will be remodeled to accommodate both restaurants and have two separate entrances for each restaurant.

“It will be good to bring the franchise to the town of Warren and it will be a nice family restaurant,” Singh said.

The menu will include breakfast with two egg breakfast platters served with hash browns and biscuits, country fried steak with white pepper country gravy and ribeye steak. Other breakfast options are pancakes topped with oreo cookies, caramel apple cobbler, strawberries and whip cream and blueberries. French toast, waffles, omelets and biscuits and gravy are other breakfast items on the menu.

Appetizers include buffalo shrimp, mozzarella cheese sticks and chicken wings.

For lunch, customers can choose from burgers and chicken sandwiches that can be paired with onion rings, chili, soup, salad, cheese sticks or sweet potato fries.

On the dinner menu there is country fried steak, prime rib, ribeye steak and shrimp, crispy southern fried chicken tenders, grilled chicken and chopped steak.

The dessert menu includes chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shakes and sundaes.

Specials are available such as kids 12 and under eat free Tuesdays and free waffles will be served to all customers on Wednesdays.

People can call ahead for orders or sit in booths and tables.

Approximately 20 to 30 employees will need to be hired including a manager, cooks and servers. Applications for the jobs will be online at indeed.com
