The Krystal was established during the Great Depressions middle part and the founder of the company was R.B. Davenport, who was a textile businessman. He was motivated by White Castle, which was a fast-food hamburger business and it preceded Krystal by 11 years. The first Krystal chains was opened in a very busy street in city center Chattanooga, Tennessee. The name of the restaurant had been chosen in a very interesting way. Davenport called his restaurant Krystal because his wife admired how crystal clean the restaurant was. But they decided to choose very interesting, unusual and distinctive spelling.

Seeing his restaurants achievements Davenport decided to open new locations. They were opened in 1930s and 1940s.

The reason was an assignment between the company and White Castle.

It was decided to use franchises to make an expansion, since the Krstal did not have the capitals to get extended. The first was sold in 1990. Davenport recognized that franchising would allow Krystal to add to its empire
The Krystal corporation had sales which costs became more in 1997 to about $248 million, but the profits fell to$6.9 million. After all this there were factors which were accounted for debility.

The company had very much problems and it was not only connected with the settlement. Employees were making difficulties too in early 1995.
