Our History

Royal Waffle King’s founder and president, Charlie Crowder, served as Vice President of Real Estate Development for Huddle House, Inc. where he oversaw the site selection, construction, and development of more than 250 locations throughout the southeast.

In 1986, Crowder left Huddle House to form Royal Waffle King Corporation. Since its foundation, Royal Waffle King now has 7 locations,  serving up smiles across Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

At Royal Waffle King, we strive to provide convenient, high-quality service centered around delicious comfort food. Being a small, family-owned business right from the start, we aim to create a dining experience that feels like home.
