In the south, there is a big chain of restaurants called Waffle House, and I have to admit that you will most likely find me there on a weekend enjoying a good cup of coffee and a waffle. And I’m not the only one. Since its founding in 1955, the Waffle House chain has sold more than 500 million waffles!
