Great Steak™

America's Premier Cheesesteak franchise capitalizes on the increased demand for the classic cheesesteak experience

Great Steak FranchiseGreat 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 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.

  • Great Steak™ FranchiseThe 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.
