A Taste of the Great Steak Brand
You already love our one-of-a-kind cheesesteaks - why not bring your dream of being a business owner to life with a Great Steak™ restaurant? If you provide the drive and determination, we'll provide the tools and support.

Our Product
At Great Steak restaurants, every meal is customized using quality cuts of meat and real cheeses combined with a choice of onions, peppers and mushrooms, all sizzled to perfection and served on freshly baked bread. Great Steak Philly Cheese, its own unique sauce along with a proprietary blend of seasonings, round out the recipe that makes each cheesesteak truly unique. In addition to cheesesteaks, Great Steak restaurants prepare a variety of other mouth-watering meals. Build your own baked potatoes, Great Fries, fresh salads and a number of specialty grilled sandwiches are also available and prepared with the same commitment to quality and freshness as the original Great Steak cheesesteak.

Our Brand
The Great Steak brand was founded in order to introduce the rest of the world to the delectable sandwich synonymous with Philadelphia - the cheesesteak. Though times have changed since the first Great Steak restaurant opened in Dayton, Ohio in 1982, we're proud to carry on the tradition of the distinctive, unforgettable, nothing-like-it cheesesteak. Today, with more than three decades of history and locations across the United States and abroad, we continue to introduce the world to America's Premier Cheesesteak®.
