Over 100 years of leadership and restaurant experience on team
We take great care in choosing just the right ingredients for our unique menu selections. We take the same care in choosing franchise partners to help grow the Green Mill brand. Our philosophy is to leverage the strength of proven processes and our unique culture to deliver an incredible opportunity to select franchisees.
The original Green Mill restaurant in St. Paul Minnesota is both geographically and emotionally at the heart of it all. We plan to expand the Green Mill brand into prime markets throughout the upper Midwest including Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska.
Our ideal franchisee will have a strong business acumen and track record, an established net worth, and a passion for developing and operating the proven Green Mill concept.
Green Mill is recognized as a leader in the casual dining segment of the restaurant industry. Well respected for our award-winning menu, our recipe for your success goes much further.
We know what it takes to build and sustain a successful business. Our franchise support team guides you through every phase of development – from site selection and restaurant establishment to training and ongoing operations.
To maintain and protect the Green Mill brand, the same tools, processes and procedures used to create our successful brand are leveraged across the franchise family. Services include owner/operator training, real estate assistance, facility design, management training, new restaurant opening procedures and ongoing operational support.
Ongoing tools and support services include:
Green Mill is as dedicated to the personal and professional growth of every team member as we are to the freshness and quality of our food and beverages. Our goal is to ensure that Green Mill is a fun place to work as well as a fun place to learn and grow, a place where everyone can achieve their goals.
Our complete management training program consists of approximately 60 days of classroom and on-the-job training
Our start-up and ongoing training programs will instruct you and your staff in many aspects of running a Green Mill franchise, including:
“I have been with Green Mill since 2007. The business is profitable and enjoyable to operate. Green Mill is excellent to work with and very supportive with quality standards, menus, cost analysis, recommendations, and more – all well above the norm for the industry. I would recommend a Green Mill franchise for your next business venture.”

“We have found Green Mill to adapt well into the various aspects of our hotel environments. Green Mill delivers a quality product and image which allows it to compete well in our markets and also provides a halo benefit to our hotels.”
“The Green Mill guest compliments our Holiday Inn hotel guest in demographics as well as with their expectations. Green Mill is a good fit for our hotel properties as a full-service restaurant, offering banquet services and a great in-restaurant dining experieince. The relaxed environmnet and comfortable setting also make the Green Mill bar a favorite stop for our guests. We are very happy with our relationship with the Green Mill brand and look forward to many more years of shared success.”
“Our Green Mills are attached to the hotels in two of the cities that we operate in. Green Mill’s diversified menu serves the hospitality business very well. Not only does our menu offer something for everyone, the servings are generous and attractive. Variety and an upscale presentation of a good menu is the key for success, along with friendly and precise service in the restaurant business today.
The Green Mill corporate and restaurant support staff have been very helpful in training and marketing our restaurant operation. We always appreciate their expertise in helping to solve any problem that may pop up at our locations.
I’m proud to be part of the Green Mill family.”
