Community Involvement

Sun Holdings, Inc. is a restaurant franchise owner company that owns over 400 locations in four separate states. The franchises they own includes Burger King, Arby’s, Popeye’s, Krispy Kreme, Cici’s Pizza, Golden Corral, and various restaurants in different airports. Since their inception in 1997 they have grown immensely and are now the 8th largest restaurant franchise owner in the United States. With so much success comes a lot of responsibility and opportunities to do good deeds. Sun Holdings, Inc. has taken full advantage of those opportunities, and in correlation with plans to obtain more franchises, they plan to continue to do good for others.

In 2014 alone their Golden Corral franchises gave 15,000 free meals to veterans. This wasn’t seen as an opportunity to take advantage of by Sun Holdings, Inc, instead, this was seen as a necessary act.

Additionally in 2014, Sun Holdings, Inc. gave away over 4 million free kids meals. All of Sun Holdings, Inc.’s franchises took part in this deed. There is a disproportionate population in the United States who live below the poverty line and consist of families with children, who struggle to put food on the table. Giving to families in need is a necessary act that more large corporations should take part in. Sun Holdings, Inc., gladly uses its resources to provide necessary food to growing children.

Guillermo Perales is the CEO and President of Sun Holdings, Inc. He has been recognized one of the Most Influential Community Leaders in the Latino Community by the Latino Leaders magazine. He continues to find ways to give back to communities that have given him so much.
