Kahala Franchises—Including Great Steak™
America's Premier Cheesesteak franchise capitalizes on the increased demand for the classic cheesesteak experience
Great Steak™ has served millions of cheesesteaks since our founding in 1982. It has remained the premier cheesesteak franchise by capitalizing on two important trends: more customers are seeking authentic, American comfort food, and cheesesteaks are rising in popularity.
While Smithsonian.com reports that approximately 50% of Americans aged 20 and older eat at least one sandwich every day¹, the cheesesteak owns a distinctive place in popular culture. Much like barbecue, cheesesteak lovers are devoted, loyal and in constant disagreement over what makes a cheesesteak “authentic.” While the ingredients described above are essential, the real argument comes down to the cheese: provolone, American or cheese sauce? Thankfully, for the devoted loyalists among our customers, Great Steak serves up all three.
- The Great Steak executive team has designed two business models that are easy to operate and don’t require a background in the restaurant industry. We leverage the power of our parent company, Kahala Brands, to source the some of the finest and freshest ingredients to keep hungry customers satisfied.
- In addition, Great Steak provides extensive training in every aspect of running a great business, as well as training you to teach your team how to provide the best classic American cheesesteak experience in your community.
With an initial investment for a traditional store starting at $146,600, Great Steak is a low-cost restaurant opportunity with potential for high returns. Our food court model and our in-line restaurant are designed to be easy to operate and to help maximize sales.
Great Steak has an experienced business model for entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing the classic American cheesesteak experience to their communities. The franchise fee for your first traditional Great Steak franchise is $30,000, and the franchise fee for multiple units may be discounted if certain conditions and criteria are met.
