A complaint filed by YPSI Corporation, a restaurant management company, charges Denny's, the largest family restaurant chain in the U.S., with racial discrimination.
The complainant was a Denny's franchisee and participant in Denny's 'Fast-Track' minority development program. The complaint alleges that Denny's violated the terms of its Fast-Track program and demanded an exorbitant amount of money for the franchisee to remain in business. The restaurant chain allegedly reneged on its offer to guarantee financing of its minority franchisees. It also claims that Denny's often located minority franchisees in underperforming locations while placing non-minority franchisees in more desirable and profitable locations.
