Quaker Steak & Lube Proves A Strong Bet For Franchisees

What began inside of an old gas station in the small town of Sharon, Pennsylvania, is now resonating across over 14 states and revving the engines of both automobile and food enthusiasts nationwide. Quaker Steak & Lube® has been serving up the ‘Best Wings USA’ for over 40 years, while sticking to their original roots of incorporating a fun atmosphere and great food under one roof — and don’t forget the cars hanging from the ceiling! With a unique concept like ours, it’s no surprise why our loyal following sometimes travels for hours to enjoy a Lube-N-Ade or two.

What Is Quaker Steak & Lube?

We like to refer to ourselves as a ‘fest-aurant,’ combining high-octane events and classic car nights with our award-winning wings and mouth-watering menu selections. After our acquisition by TravelCenters of America in 2016, we’ve shifted into high gear and supercharged our franchise development efforts, searching for qualified restaurant leaders who are looking to take the next step towards owning their own franchise! Our Vice President of Franchise Development, Bruce Lane, had this to say about the benefits a new franchisee enjoys upon jumping in the driver’s seat:

“One of the exciting elements for our franchisees is that we offer multiple streams of revenue under one roof. We offer three strong dining dayparts and multiple bars, plus we have pickup windows, retail, catering and events.”

What Sets The Lube Apart From The Rest?

Quaker Steak & Lube is unlike any other restaurant, in that its success has always been due to our ‘cult-like’ following and integration within local communities. We proudly host exciting events such as bike-nights, classic car cruises and much more — which all tie in our general theme of a ‘fest-aurant’ atmosphere for all ages to enjoy.

How Can I Benefit From Being a Franchisee?

In addition to the earning potential through our many revenue streams, The Lube offers unsurpassed support to franchisees, which is commonly referred to as ‘A to Z support.’ This comprehensive plan outlines every individual franchisee’s brand training, site selection assistance, local marketing, on-site training and more. We’re also available to provide our locations with ‘tune-ups,’ which is the process in which we work individually with each franchise to locate additional revenue potential and success.

Where Do I Start?

We’re glad you asked! Currently, we’re open to expanding on a number of territories across the U.S., and are working to bring a Lube location to everyone in America. We proudly boast an AUV of $2.88M, as well as award winning wings, burgers and sauces that you simply won’t be able to get enough of.
