Waffle House's business booms on Christmas Day

MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

Waffle House Restaurants were once again booming on Christmas Day.

The restaurant has been serving customers on the holiday since 1955. Workers told Nashville's News 2 Christmas Day is one of their busiest since they are one of the few restaurants open.

"From a production and service standpoint, this is our Super Bowl, we are on our A game," said Waffle House Area Manager Ken Wright.

To make sure they can handle all the Christmas customers, every Waffle House associate works.

"All the way from the CEO all the way down to every associate in the company works," Wright said, adding, "Part of our culture is all hands on deck."

The employees told Nashville's News 2 they don't mind working during Christmas because the customers are always very generous.

"Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are probably the two best days of the year. They make lots of money," explained Mt. Juliet Waffle House manager Delita Harris.

For many customers, a trip to Waffle House is part of their own Christmas tradition.

"Every Christmas Day we come to the Waffle House no matter what else we got going," said Betty Coon. "We have to go home and cook and we go somewhere else to eat, but we always manage to get Waffle House in on Christmas Day."

Waffle House is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
