The Quaker Steak & Lube® Franchising Blog


Westlake, OH – March 9, 2017 – The award-winning family casual-dining restaurant Quaker Steak & Lube®, known for its Best Wings USA and more than 20 sauces, is having the party of the year in honor of its 43rd birthday. To celebrate its history and the longevity of the brand, Quaker Steak & Lube is appreciating its customers – The Lube Nation – by giving away thousands of prizes throughout March and April.

The CeLUBEration features Instant Win Scratch-off Cards with prizes totaling more than $20,000 at each Quaker Steak & Lube restaurant. Guests purchasing 2 entrees receive a scratch-off card. Every card is a winner and prizes include $100 gift cards, free 100 oz. Lube Tube drink dispensers, free wings for a year, and variety of free and discounted food offers, including free appetizers and desserts. Some party go-ers will scratch their way to win the “CeLUBErate Cake Shake,” a “fan-tastic” accompaniment for a party, made with sweet vanilla ice cream blended with party cake, and topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. Scratch-off cards will be available at Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants today through April 21, or while supplies last, and can be redeemed through May 5, 2017.

The gifts just keep on coming! Quaker Steak & Lube is also giving gifts to guests who buy gift cards.  Customers purchasing Quaker Steak & Lube gift cards will receive a $10 Bonus Card for every $50 in gift cards purchased. Gift Card Bonus Cards are available today through June 15, and may be redeemed through June 30, 2017.

“Now is a great time to get gifts for springtime events like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations,” said John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President of the TA Restaurant Group, which owns and franchises Quaker Steak & Lube. “The Bonus Cards allow us to show appreciation to our guests – they receive a gift for themselves when purchasing a gift card for others,” he added.

Previously announced, the party keeps rockin’ with Quaker Steak & Lube’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament online Bracket Challenge. The competitor guessing the winners of all 63 games correctly – or a perfect bracket – will win the grand prize of $1 million! A guest who picks 60 of the games correctly will win the first place prize of a 2017 Ford Mustang. One person from each Quaker Steak & Lube location with the best bracket will win FREE Wings for a Year. Should there be a tie for either the grand or first place prizes, a tie-breaker will be determined by the closest prediction of total cumulative points for the championship game on April 3, 2017. Guests can find the official Million Dollar Bracket Challenge rules at

Guests are invited to register for the tournament bracket at Registrants will receive an email on March 12 – Selection Sunday – with instructions to make their picks by March 16 at 12 p.m. ET.
