Highlights of South Philly Steaks & Fries’ Item 19 Financial Performance Representations (2014 FDD)

  • South Philly Steaks & Fries restaurants feature Philadelphia-style cheese steaks (thinly sliced grilled steak sandwiches with cheese and assorted toppings), hot and cold specialty sandwiches, french fries, onion rings, and related food and beverages, including beer and wine where permitted by applicable law.
  • The total investment necessary to begin operation of the restaurant is from $292,500 to $464,500. This includes the $25,000 initial franchise fee.
  • You may operate in tandem or in combination with a Bananas Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt restaurant and/or Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads restaurant (owned by the same parent company as South Philly Steaks & Fries), or you may operate your South Philly Steaks & Fries restaurant alone. These franchise concepts are offered under a separate disclosure document.
  • During the calendar year 2013, the franchisor’s affiliates operated 9 company South Philly Steaks & Fries restaurants. Of the 9 restaurants, 6 were open for one year or more.
  • Of the 6 restaurants, 2 are located in a non-traditional environment such as an airport and casino which normally have extended hours of operation and are distinct in nature.
