April 24, 2012 // Franchising.com // Cincinnati, OH - As a special thank you to its local customers and neighbors, Penn Station East Coast Subs is offering a free small order of its fresh-cut fries to anyone who dines in their restaurants on Wednesday, April 25. Penn Station’s fresh-cut fries are a real customer favorite—freshly hand-cut from unpeeled potatoes, which are then flash-fried in cholesterol-free peanut oil
“Penn Station’s core customer base is fiercely loyal, especially when it comes to our fresh-cut fries,” said Craig Dunaway, president of Penn Station, Inc. “Our fresh-cut fries certainly have a high degree of crave appeal, along with our other menu items like our fresh baked chocolate chunk cookies.”
Originally founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1985, Penn Station is an upscale, fast-casual restaurant renowned for its legendary Philadelphia Cheesesteak Sub sandwich, served hot and made-to-order on freshly baked French bread. Penn Station serves a variety of hot and cold subs, as well as fresh, hand-cut, made-to-order French fries, hand-squeezed lemonade made several times daily and chocolate chunk cookies baked fresh in the restaurant.
