Laser focus on specific items means that menu offerings can be controlled, which in turn helps with inventory and related costs for franchise owners
A major strength of the Great Steak® cheesesteak franchise is a menu that pleases first-time customers and return visitors alike. The main thing people want — cheesesteak — is well represented, and there’s plenty of choice for combinations and side items as well.
What there’s not a lot of are fluff and filler, because Great Steak customers know what they want. That means franchise owners don’t have to carry a ton of inventory to offer different combinations, making Great Steak a scalable, efficient business opportunity.
Quality ingredients provide many combos
“Because Great Steak uses nothing but fresh, high-quality ingredients, it allows the opportunity to combine and create wonderful and delicious offerings to the guests without having to carry much inventory or having to add more equipment,” says Walter Mejia, Vice President of Operations.
“The menu has grown so franchise owners are able to cater to different demographics and palates. In addition to the authentic cheesesteaks, fresh burgers, loaded fries, stuffed baked potatoes, salads are also offered … you name it,” Walter adds. “A Great Steak cheesesteak franchise can provide all these products utilizing what is already in house.”
Careful planning means reduced waste and overage
Because Great Steak customers come with what they want already in mind, being ready to go with cheesesteak ingredients makes obvious sense. But being able to take those items and repurpose them into another offering allows diners to change their minds, or try something new, and still have the Great Steak experience. It also means the Great Steak cheesesteak franchise owner can easily control food-related inventory while still enhancing ticket sales and totals.
“Great Steak is able to create and serve meals that will leave you craving more,” Walter says. “You do not have to carry a lot of inventory, nor do you need more space. You can do this with a traditional mall or strip center locations under the same square footage.”
