Rising cheesesteak franchise has the full support of one the world’s largest franchisors
Investing in a franchise is a big decision and one that takes months, and sometimes years, of research. Great Steak Cheesesteak franchise owners can rest assured knowing that someone else has done much of their homework for them and in this case it’s Kahala Brands™, Great Steak’s corporate parent. QSR magazine featured Kahala Brands in a recent profile highlighting how the company has become a power player in the restaurant industry.
The article discussed Kahala’s rich history of brand innovation, and how it continues to enhance the operational systems that have allowed more than two dozen brands to continually expand their footprint. That includes Great Steak franchise owners who have grown thriving businesses with the assistance of Kahala’s input, expertise and support. “It’s a compelling story, and one that merits attention from anyone looking to launch a small business”, says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
Being part of a powerhouse portfolio means you’re never alone
In the QSR magazine article, Wuycheck explains that Kahala wants Great Steak franchise owners to know they are in business for themselves, but not by themselves. That means covering all the bases: point-of-sale and back-office systems that are easy to use; marketing and promotions; site acquisition; and anything else an owner might need help with as they grow their business.
“As I told QSR, Kahala is not the norm — and that is OK,” Wuycheck says. “Through thoughtful, deliberate development of well-known brands, as well as the addition of new ones, Kahala has been able to build an operation that can support franchise owners around the world.”
High quality remains the benchmark for Great Steak cheesesteak franchise
While Kahala’s portfolio includes many different types of food brands, all are known for their excellent products. That’s non-negotiable for both Kahala and its franchise owners, Wuycheck adds, and that’s why ongoing R&D is front and center at corporate headquarters.
“Kahala is able to bring so much to a Great Steak franchise owner, as well as to those who own our other brands,” he says. “In particular, the research and development arm of Kahala is hugely beneficial. Working with franchise owners, as well as from consumer input, they are tirelessly creating new menu items. It’s a huge advantage, and one that Kahala is always leveraging to benefit franchise owners.”
