Employees are the face of our brand, and we invest in their growth and development.

Denny’s Guiding Principles:

Guests First

They’re more than just customers or consumers. They’re our guests, and we invite them into our homes with open arms. They’re the very reason why we’re in business, and we put them at the center of everything we do.

Embrace Openness

“Open” means so much more than just being open at all times of the day. It means being open to all people, appetites and budgets. It says we’re open-minded and open to new ideas. Honest, warm and inviting. Open is the way we think and act every hour of every day.

Proud of our heritage

We are the classic diner and proud of everything that means. Since 1953, we’ve served quality food and healthy portions at a fair price. No matter where we are, we’re inviting guests around the world to a place where everyone is welcome.

Hungry to win

At Denny’s, we’re constantly looking ahead. We’re always moving, striving for more, hungry for greatness. We’re open to fresh, innovative thinking and believe we’ll succeed through teamwork, accountability and pushing the boundaries of ourselves and our Brand.

The power of we

Our Denny’s family is our most important asset. We trust, support and respect each other and work together for the greater good. We recognize the contributions of all and empower each and every one of us to achieve great things. Together, we’ll celebrate our successes and have fun doing it.

Celebrate diversity

We celebrate diversity, because our differences unite us.

Open to different people, different beliefs and different perspectives.

We stand by that. Our franchisees, employees, suppliers and guests represent a variety of backgrounds. As we see it, creating a diverse and inclusive work environment fosters growth, maximizes talent and values different perspectives, and can only build a stronger brand.
