Great China International Group has diversified business holdings in finance, real estate, commercial development, hotels, food service, television media, energy resources and port logistics.
“This significant development agreement is Denny’s first major expansion in China and is the brand’s largest international development agreement to date,” said Denny’s President and CEO John Miller. “This agreement builds upon the success the company has had in expanding the brand internationally with recent franchise openings in Honduras, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
“We believe that the Denny’s brand will continue to grow around the world and are focused on finding additional strong partners like GCIG as we continue our global expansion efforts,” Miller said.
Denny’s operates 1,680 franchised, licensed, and company-owned restaurants across the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, Honduras, Guam, Curaçao, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and New Zealand.
