Streamlined menu spotlighting one signature product creates lifelong fans who take their love for Great Steak with them wherever they go
Food fads trend, peak and fall off the charts and many food brands try appealing to these latest consumer trends, but Great Steak cheesesteak franchise has built its business around the authentic and timeless Philly cheesesteak. Our premium cheesesteak is timeless and appeals to customers throughout the U.S., inspiring them to seek out the nearest Great Steak location wherever they go.
Years after its founding, Great Steak continues to garner industry recognition and build a fan base nationwide. Our menu has remained relatively unchanged over the years and our fans appreciate that consistency because they know they can rely on us for a fresh and authentic Philly Cheesesteak made with only the highest-quality products. It’s a commitment we take very seriously and one that’s been noticed by industry publications such as Franchise Gator, who recognized us as a Top Emerging Franchise for 2019, and Franchise Chatter magazine, which named us a top 20 best sandwich franchise opportunity.
“When the Great Steak cheesesteak franchise concept was launched more than 30 years ago, that was the foundation — and that’s never changed. People who want cheesesteak have learned that Great Steak can meet that need with a terrific, affordably priced, authentic cheesesteak sandwich. That’s why they keep coming back,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations.
Streamlined menu makes it easier to deliver consistently great product and service
When customers visit a Great Steak cheesesteak franchise, whether it’s their neighborhood location or one several states away, they place their ordering knowing exactly what they want and knowing what they will get — a classically delicious cheesesteak. This keeps our menu straightforward, which makes it easier for our team members to deliver a premium customer experience along with premium food.
“When people decide they want a cheesesteak, they have made up their mind,” says Combs. “They don’t want to get hit with two dozen offerings that are similar, or totally different. The Great Steak menu is small but still offers plenty of flexibility when it comes to customizing an order — to get it just how that guest wants it.”
The fresh, made-to-order menu at Great Steak is simple. Because we don’t rely on food trends to boost sales, Great Steak tends to have lower start-up and operational costs than most food businesses. That makes us a great option for entrepreneurs who are looking to invest in a simple food concept that stands out from the usual burgers, chicken and pizza concepts that have saturated the market.
