Bill Johnson's philosophy about business was quite simple, but highly effective: 'Treat folks special.' That ethic along with appetizing food helped Country Kitchen catch on. Within three short years business increased enough to allow the opening of another Country Kitchen Restaurant. As word got around about the quality of the restaurants more and more Country Kitchens opened their doors. By 1958 Bill Johnson began offering franchises across the nation.
