Perkins restaurants have a long tradition of flying giant American flags outside their buildings, which dates back to the 1970s. During this time Perkins really began expanding, jumping from 12 to 350 locations around the United States. The owner, Wyman Nelson and his associate came up with the idea one day when they witnessed an American flag proudly flying in the early morning sunshine.

Seeing the stars and stripes brought back memories for the men and was also a great way to show off their patriotism. To this day, all locations still honor their American roots and pride with a giant US flag and continue to be honored.
