Great Steak’s simple business model is designed to create an affordable opportunity and easy operational learning curve for new franchise owners
Becoming a Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise owner is a chance for entrepreneurs to break into the restaurant industry with a proven concept.
Both the food court counter and the in-line restaurant model were designed to be easy to operate and to maximize sales, appealing to multi-unit owners like Moe Elhini, owner of two Great Steak franchise locations in northern California.
“I always wanted to own my own restaurant, but I realized that a franchise would give me the proven business model that would enable me to be successful. This has been the case with Great Steak; it’s a very simple operation. It doesn’t require a lot of employees, the menu is simple and the day-to-day managing of this business is easy to understand,” says Elhini. “Of course, the product is exceptional. Once people see our cheesesteaks, the product sells itself. Great Steak has made managing the inventory, training, and maintaining the quality of the product very straightforward. Everyone who wants to go into business thinks about the bottom line, and with Great Steak, the bottom line is very good.”
Great Steak’s signature product stands out with consumers and owners
There are many restaurant options for busy consumers but very few, if any, focus on the quintessential American classic, the cheesesteak. Great Steak’s dedication to the highest-quality ingredients and best customer service have built up tremendous brand loyalty over the past 30 plus years.
“Our brand’s customers are very passionate: the cheesesteak is not just a sandwich, it’s a category all its own,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations. “The Great Steak cheesesteak has won a rapidly growing base of customers who are loyal, excited and find enormous enjoyment in our commitment to the cheesesteak.”
In addition to a loyal fan base, Great Steak has a network of owners passionate about the art of the cheesesteak and making a living bringing that passion to their community. “Great Steak has provided me with a wonderful life for my family. As a business, it’s incredibly easy to run and manage. I’m very proud of the quality of our food, and after several years in business, I still cannot wait to come into work and serve our cheesesteaks, which I think are the best for miles around,” says Raymond Lee, owner of the Great Steak franchise location in Glendale, Arizona’s Arrowhead Towne Center.
