C.H. Guenther & Son Inc. (CHG) started operating its first flour mill in the hill country of southern Texas back in 1851.  As a guild-certified master millwright, Carl Hilmar Guenther set the standard supplying some of America’s first food service establishments with top-grade flour and eventually other grain-based products. And today, this San Antonio-based company is the supplier of the Waffle House waffle mix.   

Tremendous pride goes into each bag of Waffle House waffle mix before it reaches your local restaurant.   Then every day our Associates combine this proprietary mix with farm-fresh eggs and rich, creamy half-and-half to produce the batter for the world’s most famous waffle.  Hand mixed in small batches, cooked to order and served piping hot to your table; you can see why Waffle House waffles are the favorite of millions of people just like you.

Whether you enjoy the original sweet cream waffle or if the pecan waffle is your favorite, Waffle House Associates and CHG work together to consistently deliver great-tasting satisfaction, plate after syrupy plate in the more than 1,800 Waffle House restaurant locations.

Waffle House Coffee

Waffle House coffee begins as Arabica beans grown in the breathtakingly rugged landscape and rich volcanic soil of Central and South America.  Handpicked on family-owned farms, our coffee is high grown and comprised of only the most select beans found in the entire world.

While the coffee is born in Central and South America, it is nurtured right here in the United States –at Royal Cup Coffee based in Birmingham, Alabama. That’s where Stacy, the roasting manager for Royal Cup, turns 100% Arabica beans into the coffee you drink at Waffle House restaurants. He and his team roast beans at 450 degrees in a customized roasting process that imparts a unique flavor and aroma.

And then Laronda takes over.  She, along with her 40,000 fellow Waffle House Associates, prepare and serve you the Royal Cup coffee.  Her fast and friendly service coupled with a quality cup of Royal Cup coffee will start your day off right. Quality beans, responsibly grown, nurtured in Alabama, prepared fresh in your local restaurant and served with a smile is our recipe for the perfect cup of coffee.  And our Customers agree.  We use over 3 million pounds of coffee beans a year in the 1800+ Waffle House restaurants. 


So order up a cup of Waffle House Classic Blend, Specialty Dark Roast or Premium Decaf and let us know how it is





Waffle House Grilled Chicken by Springer Mountain Farms

The days before 1986 were sad times for folks in search of a quality chicken sandwich at quick service restaurants.

There may be a debate about who invented the chicken sandwich and when; however, it was clear that it needed improvement. You see, during those dark dining days, the only offerings for those looking for something served fast were unknown parts of chicken, deep-fried or slathered with sauce to cover up low quality product.

However, in 1986 Waffle House and Springer Mountain Farms came to diners’ rescue with a high-quality grilled chicken breast introduced on the Waffle House menu. This was a game-changer in the restaurant world and, we dare say, in the entire world. And restaurant-goers everywhere rejoiced at the fact that you now had alternatives to the deep-fried, same-old sandwich forced upon them by the rest of the restaurant world. 

Not to rest on this achievement, in 2011 Waffle House and Springer Mountain Farms upped the poultry ante again with the addition of antibiotic-free chicken. Keeping the same marinade recipe, the new Springer Mountain Farms chicken added even higher quality to the equation.  The Springer Mountain Farms quality comes from raising chickens that are fed only an all-vegetable diet.      

Not only is Springer Mountain Farms the best-tasting and healthiest chicken available anywhere, but they are dedicated to using environmentally friendly methods in all of their facilities.  They insist that their chickens are raised under the strictest standards of animal welfare.  With extra care, their chickens are raised on a vegetarian diet based on high quality domestically sourced ingredients.  It is this attention to detail that results in the highest quality chicken for you to enjoy.

So although we don’t know who really invented the chicken sandwich, we do know, with Springer Mountain Farms’ help, Waffle House has perfected the grilled chicken sandwich.  That’s what makes our Grill Operators proud to serve Springer Mountain Farms chicken in our restaurants.  Whether it’s Chicken & Eggs or a Grilled Chicken Sandwich, you can taste the quality of the chicken served at Waffle House.

Thank you for stopping in to a Waffle House restaurant.  We hope you will try a helping of our famous Springer Mountain Farms chicken today.
