Streamlined menu and operations model appeal to entrepreneurs new to the restaurant industry
Launching a quick service restaurant can be a daunting venture for those new to the food industry. It’s a complicated market sector, which is why a Great Steak™ franchise can be a top choice for entrepreneurs seeking an uncomplicated brand offering low investment fees, a proven concept and world-class support.
“The simplicity of the Great Steak brand makes us a great choice for investors, even without any prior restaurant experience. We require low overhead, not very many products or prep and a small staff. It’s so simple and it’s easy to run,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations. “Combine all of this with the support that Kahala Brands™ provides, and all you have to do is run the business.”
“The Great Steak cheesesteak franchise concept has been growing steadily for more than 30 years. There are many reasons for Great Steak’s enduring appeal: high-quality ingredients and a setup that allows consumers to interact with their food preparers, for starters, as well as a comprehensive, yet simple, menu that gives plenty of options but doesn’t overwhelm. It all adds up to a positive consumer experience that helps build brand loyalty and repeat business for franchise owners”, Combs says.
Our timeless menu is a favorite in any market
Great Steak has tremendous brand loyalty and stands out from the predictable burger and pizza options. While some restaurants lose their core brand identity by trying to please everyone and keep up with food trends, the Great Steak cheesesteak franchise brand has been sticking to one thing and doing it extraordinarily well.
“Great Steak appeals to a wide variety of people in any part of the country,” says Combs. “Our food is also affordable, with an average ticket of $8 to $10, with high-quality ingredients.”
“Customers also enjoy watching their food prepared in front of them, knowing it is fresh and made to order”, she adds. “Our use of high-quality ingredients is evident the moment a customer steps up to the counter. We don’t prepare meals in advance. Our customers tell us how they want their food, and then we cook their meal in front of them. It’s dinner and a show!”
