It’s no wonder Great Steak has been around since 1982 and is still garnering industry accolades – we were named a Top 50 emerging franchise in the $23 billion sandwich and sub shop market by Franchise Chatter online magazine.
“Great Steak’s inclusion among the top sandwich franchise brands in the nation is just further validation that our longstanding brand is a great choice for investors seeking a classic food franchise with the potential to thrive in many markets,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations. “Great Steak appeals to a wide variety of people in any part of the country. Our food is delicious and affordable, with an average ticket of $8 to $10, and our commitment to using only the highest quality ingredients is evident the moment a customer steps up to the counter.”
Small footprint, streamlined business model make Great Steak easy to operate
Because Great Steak’s business model isn’t dependent on the latest food trends to boost sales, Great Steak tends to have lower startup and operational costs than most food businesses. That makes it a great investment option for entrepreneurs who are looking for a simple food business concept with low overhead.
Thanks to a small footprint, a Great Steak is also cost to owners effective from a hiring and training standpoint. A Great Steak doesn’t require a large team, typically employing fewer than six employees, which can save franchisees time and money.
“The simplicity of the Great Steak brand makes it a great choice for investors without any prior restaurant experience. The business requires low overhead compared to other concepts, product prep, and a small staff. It’s so simple and it’s easy to run,” says Combs. “Combine all of this with the support that Kahala Brands provides, and all the franchise owner has to do is run the business.”
