Our Mission

Krystal is the craveable indulgence that’s there for you and your crew with consistent, affordable, and downright delicious meals served hot and fresh, day and night.

Our Mission

A History of Great Taste

Things have changed a lot in the last 87 years or so, but at Krystal, not so much. Even during the Great Depression, founders Rody Davenport Jr. and Glenn Sherrill believed that a good meal at a great price—served with a smile at a clean restaurant—would attract customers and keep them coming back. Krystal has proven them right ever since. Sure, we stick to the classics, but over the years, we’ve never been afraid to innovate, adding a breakfast menu, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, milkshakes (and more) to our enduring selection of delicious, iconic, little square burgers.

Today, as we expand into new markets with new restaurant designs and our unique and tasty menu items, we still deliver a one-of-a-kind taste and experience—one we like to think would make Rody and Glenn proud.

Our Story

The Krystal Company has been serving guests since 1932, and throughout that time we’ve been proud to give back to the communities in which we happily serve our beloved Krystals. Now, Krystal is setting its sights on helping K-12 schools by supporting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), culinary, and sports programs in our neighboring communities.
