Denny’s is America’s diner. For over 60 years, Denny’s has been a place where people can come in, sit down and connect with one another over great food. It’s a place that was founded on togetherness, where you can have “the usual” or try something new. We’re always open and we’re always serving your favorites. So come in, leave your troubles at the door and enjoy some great food. See you at Denny’s.
Harold Butler and Richard Jezak opened a donut stand in 1953 and called it Danny’s Donuts. Butler’s stated promise was “To serve the best cup of coffee, make the best donuts, give the best service, offer the best value and stay open 24 hours a day.” Today that donut stand is a restaurant chain with a slightly different name, over 1,700 locations and a proven reputation for keeping Mr. Butler’s original promise.
Harold Butler and Richard Jezak open Danny’s Donuts in Lakewood, CA.
After Jezak’s departure from the now 6-store chain, Butler created and changed the concept a year later from a donut shop to a coffee shop with store #8. Danny’s Donuts is renamed Danny’s Coffee Shops and changes its operation to 24 hours.
To avoid confusion with LA restaurant, Coffee Dan’s, Butler changes the name from Danny’s Coffee Shops to Denny’s Coffee Shops.
