Great Steak Franchise Reviews

Owners share what they love about owning a cheesesteak franchise

Great Steak™ is lucky to have incredible franchise owners. We have many locations across the U.S. and around the world, and our network is expanding. Our franchise owners come from a wide variety of backgrounds, professional histories and cultures. Their decision to go into business for themselves, combined with their passion for cheesesteaks, has helped make Great Steak America’s Premier Cheesesteak® franchise since 1982. In return, we do everything in our power to help our owners run great businesses. Here is what our franchise owners have to say about Great Steak:

“Great Steak is unique in that our quality products and fresh ingredients make it very easy to establish lifelong relationships with our customers. From a franchisee’s perspective, the support that the executive team gives us is second-to-none. I have never felt like I was just a number. If I have any questions at all, I know they will help me find a solution. It’s a low cost investment; but more importantly, it has a relatively quick return on that investment. I would open more locations in a heartbeat.”

– Nidal al-Farah, owner of three Great Steak cheesesteak franchises in Indiana

“I always wanted to own my own restaurant, but I realized that a franchise would give me the proven business model that would enable me to be successful. This has been the case with Great Steak: it’s a very simple operation. It doesn’t require a lot of employees, the menu is simple and the day-to-day managing of this business is easy to understand. Of course, the product is exceptional. Once people see our cheesesteaks, the product sells itself. Great Steak has made managing the inventory, the training, and maintaining the quality of the product very straightforward. Everyone who wants to go into business thinks about the bottom line, and with Great Steak, the bottom line is very good. I want to open another location, perhaps in an airport or Las Vegas.”

– Moe Elhindi, owner of two Great Steak franchise locations in Northern California

“Great Steak has provided me with a wonderful life for my family. As a business, it’s incredibly easy to run, manage and remain profitable. I’m very proud of the quality of our food, and after several years in business, I still cannot wait to come into work and serve our cheesesteaks, which I think are the best for miles around.”

– Raymond Lee, owner of the Great Steak franchise location in the Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale, Arizona
