Return on Investment
It’s about your profits. Our solid (and growing) top line sales drive an even more important number, bottom line profits (ROI).
Invest with a restaurant company that has an astounding 99+% success rate!*
*Based on 238 Penn Station restaurants in operation. Since we began franchising in August 1987, we've had only 2 restaurants close and not reopen. Any Penn Station restaurants that were successfully relocated by franchisees from the original location to a new location and one restaurant re-acquired by us were not considered as closed restaurants for this purpose.
Experienced and Stable Management
The leadership of Penn Station has over 160 years of combined restaurant experience.
Extensive Focus on our Franchisees
Our primary corporate focus is assisting our Franchisees to maximize profitability. There are only 2 corporate owned restaurants; therefore we’re able to provide you unparalleled support.
Each month we compile and analyze the financial data for all restaurants. We provide Franchisees with information to assess and scrutinize your success in comparison with all other restaurants in the system.
We have negotiated national contracts with our vendors. Penn Station has chosen to forego profiting from vendor rebates, electing instead to have vendors lower costs to Franchisees.
Our unique Managing Owner and General Manager program is the backbone of our system and provides the framework for instilling a true owner's mentality in every franchised restaurant.
Our proven systems focus on the quality of operations in all restaurants. Our Operating Manual defines systems, techniques and policies. This ensures all guests receive the same high quality dining experience on every visit while offering efficiencies that drive your profits.
Penn Station Inc. employs 14 Area Representatives who provide hands on consulting for all restaurants. Representatives visit and consult with each restaurant a minimum of 8 times per year.
