Our profile

The brand

Block House has stood for uncomplicated dining, the best steaks and zest for life since 1968. There are currently over 40 restaurants in Germany and 11 licensed restaurants in the rest of Europe. Everyone feels good at Block House: families, single people, businesspeople, young and old alike. The cosy but modern design of the restaurants is regarded by many regular customers as a home from home.

On the menu are tender steaks, fresh salads and other fresh dishes from our kitchen. The Block House brand stands for top quality and fair prices. All products are unique and are developed and continuously improved in our own production facilities.

The name Block House is very popular in Germany and benefits from the brand’s constant, steady growth. The creativity and innovativeness of family who own it are as much a fundamental feature of this company as its bond with its employees and business partners and commitment to social causes. There are a high number of standardised procedures in place for all Block House processes and these are successfully implemented by well-trained and highly motivated staff every single day.


As we want to share our success and drive our business forward, we are looking for partners who want to grow with the Block House brand in an equally success-oriented manner. We stand for controlled expansion and internationalisation.

With a franchise contract, franchisees will be given the right and responsibility to implement the Block House system in a particular location/region outside Germany independently with the support of the Block Group service companies.
