About the business
‘The customer is always right.’, they say, but not at Karen’s. The 1950’s American themed diner is flipping this old adage on its head with their brand promise of delivering great food, terrible service. Look up Karen’s Diner on your favourite social media platform and you’ll know what we’re talking about!
Karen’s Diner is designed to poke fun at the ‘Karen’ that lives in all of us. The fast casual dining restaurant space tends to be bland with very little attitude and Karen’s seeks to elevate each customer’s dining experience by focusing on service, and to be more specific, poor service delivered in a humorous way. An interactive diner and an absurdly fun experience.
At Karen’s, customers will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters who in return are expecting customers to give it full Karen. A very unique place where customers can complain until the cows come home, but the staff literally won’t care. Customers can expect good food, good fun, and a dining experience like no other.
Since starting the brand in 2021, Karen’s has exploded into the world stage with phenomenal social media following and has become a massive hit in Australia and the UK, with diners popping up in major cities one after another.
