Adaptable concept means franchise owners can grow their businesses in mall or standalone locations, but also adapt to fit unique space requirements
One major benefit of choosing to own a Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise is flexibility when it comes to physical space. Great Steak locations can be put into place in a mall food court as an in-line operation or also established as a stand-alone location.
It comes down to adaptability, and that is something that Great Steak has become very good at over the years, says Walter Mejia, Vice President of Operations.
Great Steak model can work in variety of spaces
“Because the brand has been around since 1982, it has the experience and has opened different types of locations requiring different square footage,” Walter explains. “The concept adapts to the needs at hand.”
Great Steak has a long, positive history with the traditional in-line, or mall food court, model, which also works in strip center locations, he says, quickly adding, “We also have experience with stand-alone and non-traditional locations such as sports stadiums, hospitals, schools and even co-brands within the Kahala Brands™ family.”
A brand that can put down roots anywhere
That means if an entrepreneur has a location in mind for his or her Great Steak cheesesteak franchise, it should be strongly considered. Because the Great Steak corporate team has lots of experience evaluating not just retail locations, but also the businesses and residential areas that surround them, they can quickly ascertain if the site is a good fit or not.
“The brand knows how to come in and see what the opportunities are, but also what might be issues that a new small business owner may not have thought about,” Walter says. “The team can look at the proposed site itself, as well as everything that’s going on all around to see if there might be any red flags that could slow down the customer stream. The team is great at identifying the best real estate, so if the owner’s option isn’t the best, they will help find a new one. And if it all looks good, then together, with the team’s experience and the footprint flexibility can offer a solution to almost any space requirement.”
