Streamlined business model, high-quality ingredients and world-class support make Great Steak a best bet investment
Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise has been recognized as one of the best sandwich franchise investments for 2019 in the $23 billion sandwich and sub shop franchise market by Franchise Chatter online magazine.
The 25 Best Sandwich Franchises list was compiled according to growth momentum and brand equity. Great Steak ranked among the top 20 choices on this year’s list.
“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. The food is 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.”
Lower operating costs and simple menu are a win/win
The fresh, made-to-order menu at Great Steak is simple and profitable. Because the model isn’t built to rely on food trends to boost sales, Great Steak tends to have lower start-up and operational costs than most food businesses. That makes it a great investment for entrepreneurs who are looking for a simple concept.
Thanks to a small footprint, a Great Steak also has simple staffing needs, typically employing fewer than six team members. This saves owners the investment of time and money on training.
And speaking of training, when new franchisees sign on to Great Steak they join two families — the Great Steak family and the Kahala Brands™ family, a world-class franchise industry leader. New owners are thoroughly trained on everything it takes to successfully launch their Great Steak location — from hiring their small but efficient team to growing the business and introducing new fans to Great Steak.
“The simplicity of the Great Steak brand makes it a great choice for investors without any prior restaurant experience. The business requires low overhead, not very many products or 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.”
Great Steak is a low-cost investment opportunity with a proven business model in the $22 billion sandwich industry. Since the brand’s founding in 1982, the Great Steak cheesesteak franchise family has grown to more than 40 locations nationwide as it partners with entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing the classic American cheesesteak experience to their communities. Franchisees can utilize the support not only of Great Steak’s experienced management team, but also that of Kahala Brands™, one of the most-trusted names in franchising with more than 3,000 premier locations nationwide. Whether you are looking to bring authentic cheesesteak sandwiches to a shopping mall near you or wanting to open a friendly neighborhood eatery, Great Steak offers the right opportunity. There has never been a better time to open a Great Steak.
