5 & Diner Expanding to New Jersey

Looks like the state of New Jersey, birthplace of Bon Jovi, the light bulb, and home of the world's largest spoon collection, is in need of some (more) burgers and shakes -- stat.

And who better to continue to fill the densest system of highways in the United States with guests in search of chrome lights, juke boxes, sock hops and car shows, classic American diner fare, and zero alcohol than Arizona's own 5 & Diner.

Founded in Phoenix in 1989 (and purchased in 2008 by Bob and Laurie Watson of LPM Holding Co. Inc. in Maynard, Massachusetts), 5 & Diner, the '50s-style diner restaurant franchise with twelve locations across five states, plans to build at least 30 new locations throughout New Jersey over the next five years, capitalizing on the state's reputation as the diner capital of the world.

Wanna buy one?

The cost of having your very own 5 & Diner ranges from $450,000 - $750,000, with an average unit sales volume of more than $1.1 million.

5 & Diner is currently seeking franchisees for the following areas in New Jersey: Philadelphia Tri-State Area (5-10 new locations); Trenton/Princeton/Brunswick (3-5 new locations); Edison/New Brunswick/Piscataway/Somerville (3-5 new locations); Northern New Jersey (5-10 new locations); Toms River (1-2 new locations); and Freehold (1-2 new locations).
