Harold Butler and his first partner opened Danny's Donuts in Lakewood, CA in 1953. <rev.>www.dennys.com/#/about/history In 1955, after his partner's departure from the now 6-store chain, Butler created and changed the concept a year later in 1956 from a donut shop to a coffee shop with store #8. Danny's Donuts is renamed Danny's Coffee Shops and changes its operation to 24 hours. <rev.>www.dennys.com/#/about/history

In 1959, to avoid confusion with Los Angeles restaurant chain, Coffee Dan's, Butler changed the name from Danny's Coffee Shops to Denny's Coffee Shops. In 1961, Denny's Coffee Shops becomes Denny's. <rev.>www.dennys.com/#/about/history
