Small footprint allows concept to be placed in busy shopping areas, commuter centers and other high-traffic areas that provide a steady stream of business
One reason many entrepreneurs launch their own businesses is that they’ve spotted a niche that needs filling. That’s one reason why many are choosing to open Great Steak™ cheesesteak franchise locations.
It’s the desire to bring something new, fresh and enjoyable to the fast-casual dining scene in the community, certainly, but it’s also because Great Steak’s in-line restaurant model is designed to fit in to so many valuable, high-traffic consumer destinations.
Flexible footprint opens up site options
“A Great Steak cheesesteak franchise can go anywhere,” says Kari Combs, Great Steak’s Vice President of Operations. “In addition to a counter model that works well in busy mall food courts and enclosed dining destinations, Great Steak offers the in-line model for a franchise that can be situated in many other types of locations.”
For instance, an open-air shopping and entertainment center may not offer a centralized food court, but has real estate dedicated to restaurants. Thanks to its small footprint, a Great Steak cheesesteak franchise can easily fit into one of those, giving consumers the chance to enjoy an authentic cheesesteak while they are shopping, seeing a movie or just out running errands.
Site selection team removes the guesswork
And even better, the new franchise owner will get plenty of help from a real estate team that knows how to evaluate every potential site to help ensure it’s the best fit. That means assessing the site for its full potential so that it can capitalize on other Great Steak differentiators, such as the ability to operate with a small staff and maintain low overhead.
“People come to Great Steak because they want cheesesteak, and finding the most visible spot in the best part of town is part of the package,” Combs says. “The in-line model works so well because it’s easy to situate, draws attention immediately and rapidly builds a loyal, repeat-business customer base.
