Why 2018 Is A Great Year To Open A Great Steak Franchise
As more people dine out, they are looking for high-quality food at a reasonable price, two hallmarks of the Great Steak experience
Having a meal out is a treat, and consumers want to make sure they are having the best time possible for their hard-earned dollars. That’s why creating a fun experience from start to finish, as well as providing terrific food at a good price, has positioned Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise owners for a strong year.
“There is a lot of interest in the Great Steak brand now because more entrepreneurs are looking at launching a business to capitalize on the growing U.S. economy,” says Kari Combs, Vice President of Operations. “As they do their research, they are finding that this is a well-known name with solid consumer appeal.”
Simplicity is key to longevity
The Great Steak cheesesteak franchise concept is both simple and timeless. First, the focus is on cheesesteaks: when people come to Great Steak, they’ve made up their mind about what they want. That choice is reinforced by a simple menu that provides plenty of options, but doesn’t overwhelm. Customers then interact with the counter staff, and get to customize their food and see it prepared.
“A Great Steak visit means fresh, high-quality food made in front of the customer,” Combs says. “No one is forced to scroll through pages and pages of a menu, or pick up food that’s been boxed and sitting under heat lamps. Great Steak provides a fun, interactive restaurant experience, and customers have been responding positively for more than 30 years.”
New markets mean growth opportunities
Great Steak cheesesteak franchise locations continue to pop up around the United States. Even so, there are many markets that would be a great fit for the brand. Now is the time for any entrepreneur interested in bringing a tested and well-respected name to his or her community.
“Great Steak is a truly portable concept — people love cheesesteaks, no matter where they live,” Combs says. “Bringing a Great Steak cheesesteak franchise to town would create a lot of interest and, if that location is like the others, will soon have a very loyal following all its own.”
