Award-Winning Quaker Steak & Lube® Announces Expansion Plans for Orlando

Casual Dining Franchise Responds to Fans Desire for Orlando Restaurant

SHARON, PA – October 21, 2013 - The Award-Winning casual-dining franchise Quaker Steak & Lube® known for its Best Wings USA and more than 25 sauces, announced today plans to expand into the Orlando, FL market and is looking for qualified franchisees. Earlier this year, The Lube® launched the "I Want My Quaker Steak & Lube®" social media campaign, where loyal Quaker Steak & Lube® Facebook fans voted where Lube Nation would grow next. In response to Orlando receiving an overwhelming number of votes during the national eight-week promotion, The Lube® is now searching for prospective candidates to join one of America’s fastest-growing restaurant chains and bring Quaker Steak & Lube® to loyal fans in the market.

"Orlando’s Lube Nation has responded with a rallying cry to bring our unique motor-themed restaurant concept into the city," said John Longstreet, president and chief executive officer, Quaker Steak & Lube®. "We are now looking for passionate franchisees to help make this a reality – we are well on our way to doubling our footprint in the United States and encourage interested developers to contact us to pursue this great opportunity."

The compelling décor, 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 39 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 more than 60 locations across 18 states and Canada.

"Our food and bar beverage programs, in-house events and retail sales offer franchisees multiple revenue streams in their market," added Longstreet. "That, combined with our industry-high average unit volumes, unique trade dress and unmatched marketing and operation support, make us a compelling investment as we look to expand Lube Nation to Central Florida."

Most recently, Quaker Steak & Lube® was awarded the festival favorite for the second straight year at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, NY, winning the last three out of four. In addition, it was also recognized for its Triple Atomic wing sauce, winning first place in the Traditional Extra-Hot sauce category.
