Your Neighborhood Grill
Friends is a neighborhood grill & bar. We are locally owned and operated by Ray Stanjevich and Suzanne Cartwright, with locations in the Atlanta suburbs of Dacula, Dawsonville, Suwanee, Buford and Winder. Operating since 2010, Friends is a place for good food and service, families and sports. Our growth is attributed to our customer loyalty, and we continue to thrive because of repeat visits by our "regulars".
Our goal is to grow as an independent, locally owned restaurant that supports our community and our employees. We hope that you will in turn support us.
Friends American Grill offers entrepreneurs an opportunity to own a part of a successful traditional full-service restaurant chain that serves great fresh food. It's quickly becoming known as the best All-American neighborhood bar and grill where "everybody knows your name".
The Friends American Grill offers customers a fun atmosphere with music, sports on the big-screen, and delicious affordable meals to enjoy with friends or family. Menu items include a diverse menu of burgers, seafood, wings, steaks, sandwiches, and a full-service bar.
After years of experience in the restaurant industry, the founders Ray Stanjevich and Suzanne Cartwright started Friends American Grill in 2010 in Greater Atlanta. They believe in creating a unique family restaurant that contributes to its community. Today, it's expanded to 5 franchises with 2 more on the way, so you can still select a territory on the ground floor. All food and beverages are sourced from a direct supplier giving you an opportunity for volume discounting.
The Friends American Grill Franchisor Company offers unrivaled training and support to each franchisee as they join the Friends American Grill family. Through rigorous qualification and selection, Friends American Grill will only sell its franchises to the highest quality individuals, personally and professionally.
