Cheesesteak franchise has low food costs, streamlined business model and support from one of the world’s largest franchisors
Great Steak Cheesesteak franchise™ can be a smart investment in 2020 for investors wanting to expand their portfolio, or entrepreneurs looking for food business with low startup costs. Backed by Kahala Brands™, our business model has garnered recent industry recognition, from Franchise Gator selecting us as Top 50 emerging franchise to Franchise Chatter naming us a top sandwich franchise.
Great Steak can be a top choice for entrepreneurs seeking an established brand offering low investment fees, a proven concept and world-class support in the QSR space that is overcrowded with the usual burgers, chicken and pizza offerings.
“Cheesesteaks are a category of their own,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations for Great Steak. “It’s the quintessential American sandwich, which at its best features the simple ingredients of the original found in Philadelphia: thinly sliced sirloin steak and melted cheese cooked quickly on a griddle and then placed on a lightly toasted French roll that is soft enough to soak up the juices. It’s relatable and easy to understand, and once you’ve had a Great Steak cheesesteak, you’re hooked for life.”
Business model and brand recognition are a winning combo
Great Steak also is a seasoned and well-respected name that has been around since 1982. A simple, classic menu — featuring high-quality ingredients such as fresh bread baked in-house daily and sirloin steak sliced and shipped directly from Philadelphia — makes it easy to operate and attract fans. This streamlined menu paired with a small footprint requirement equates to a business model with low overhead and minimal staffing requirements.
“If a franchisee brings the confidence and enthusiasm for great tasting cheesesteaks, we can teach them the cheesesteak business,” says Bob DiBartolomeo, Director of Franchise Development for Great Steak. “Our training process maps out our simple in-store operations — they rely on attention to detail, which makes for great-tasting cheesesteaks every time a customer walks through the doors. We can help first-time restaurant owners develop their skills in the underserved market of cheesesteak lovers in America and beyond.”
