Quaker Steak & Lube® Wins National Buffalo Wing Festival Favorite For Second Straight Year

Casual Dining Franchise Also Takes Home First Place Award for its Triple Atomic Wing Sauce 

SHARON, Pa. - Sept. 9, 2013 // PRNewswire // - The Award-Winning casual-dining franchise Quaker Steak & Lube® known for its Best Wings USA and more than 20 sauces, announced today it won the coveted Festival Favorite award, an honor voted on by fans, at the 2013 National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, N.Y. This marks the second year in a row that The Lube® has been named Festival Favorite, and the third time overall. In addition, Quaker Steak & Lube® was also recognized for its Triple Atomic wing sauce, winning first place in the Traditional Extra-Hot sauce category.

"We are thrilled to be named the Festival Favorite once again!" said John Longstreet, chief executive officer of Quaker Steak & Lube®. "We take great pride and passion in our signature sauces, and winning this award for consecutive years truly proves that we are Best Wings USA!"

The National Buffalo Wing Festival is a two-day event that takes place annually during Labor Day weekend at the Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo, N.Y.; this year it took place on Saturday, Aug. 31 and Sunday, Sept.1. Each year at the National Buffalo Wing Festival, The Lube® enters its sauces into three of the seven allotted categories. A panel of judges then decides which restaurants have the best sauce based on a blind taste test.

"We want to thank all of Lube nation, and our fans at this year's festival, for their support and excitement of this great award," added Longstreet. "We can't wait for 2014!"

The compelling decor, including race cars suspended from the ceilings, motorcycles, Corvettes and gas station memorabilia, combined with its craveable food and SuperCharged events, has created a cult-like following for The Lube® for more than 38 years. The company experienced significant growth in 2012 with 11 restaurant openings, a 22 percent increase from the previous year and a 13 percent increase in system wide revenues. The company has nearly 60 locations across 18 states and Canada.
