July 10, 2015 // Franchising.com // MILFORD, OHIO - Penn Station East Coast Subs, the fast-casual restaurant known for its grilled, made-to-order sub sandwiches, will celebrate its annual “Fry Day” Thursday, July 16 by giving away the brand’s signature made-to-order, fresh-cut fries with any sub purchase.
“Our fries are one of our key differentiators from other sandwich concepts that often only offer cold sandwiches and sides,” said Penn Station President Craig Dunaway. “Once a year we like to celebrate our fresh-cut fries and thank our customers with Fry Day. As with all of the food we serve, quality is of the upmost importance. In fact, last time our potato supplier was in from Idaho, he tried our fries for the first time and even he thought they were superior to all others.”
All Penn Station locations are participating in Fry Day.
Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1985, Penn Station serves a variety of grilled and cold deli sandwiches made to order with high-quality ingredients on freshly baked bread. The menu also includes hand-cut fries, hand-squeezed lemonade made throughout the day and chocolate chunk cookies baked in the restaurant. Penn Station was named the best sandwich chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2015 Consumer Picks survey.
Penn Station has more than 290 locations in 15 states including Ohio, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. All but one location is franchised, and Penn Station has a better-than 99.9 percent success rate with only two store closings over the last 30 years. As a franchisor, Penn Station is known for its outstanding profitability and return on investment.
Projections call for the opening of 30 restaurants nationwide in 2015. Franchise opportunities are available in Kansas City, Richmond, Virginia, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, Tennessee and North and South Carolina, as well as a number of other existing markets.
