Take an inside look at what it takes to keep a WAFFLE HOUSE restaurant open 24-7:


Vecus Miller is from the Bronx, born and raised in New York City. But now he's one of Waffle House's top guys in Atlanta, helping keep two dozen restaurants humming 24/7. If you hit a Waffle House at 2 a.m., you might see him pitching in, washing dishes or taking orders.

As a regional vice president for the Norcross-based chain, Miller, 39, oversees 26 stores from downtown Atlanta to Stone Mountain. Miller, who attended Morehouse College, started at Waffle House almost nine years ago as a manager trainee. He learned how to wait tables and cook food. Now, the Snellville resident does a good portion of his work on the third shift, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. True to urban legend, the locks on the door of most Waffle House restaurants are rarely used.
