Franchisees have the vantage point of training with a world-class brand and sharing that knowledge with team members
Mentoring future business owners is just one of many enjoyable aspects of being a Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise owner. When a Great Steak opens, it quickly becomes a fun and frequented part of the community, whether at the local food court or as a freestanding in-line restaurant. Franchisees team members are often high school or college students who benefit from seeing firsthand how the franchise business model works and the joys of business ownership.
“Great Steak is a fun, part-time place to work for young people. The brand has higher-than- average retention rates over most fast-casual restaurants, and we are very proud of that. The company culture of our brand emphasizes an unwavering commitment to quality customer service, that skill benefits employees who are new to the workforce and exploring future options, like business ownership,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations. “Our franchise owners work alongside front-line employees in a tight-knit team, and these collaboration skills will benefit those workers beyond the Great Steak counter.”
