Quaker Steak & Lube Signs Franchise Deal for Salem, Ohio
Quaker Steak & Lube, one of the nation’s leading family casual-dining restaurant chains, has signed an agreement with new franchisees Brooke and Brandy Pidgeon to open a restaurant at the Timberlanes Complex in Salem, Ohio.
Quaker Steak & Lube has spent more than two years reshaping and redefining the brand to position it for strategic growth, much of which will come through franchise development. The restaurant chain’s leadership team has elevated the brand from new and improved menu offerings to enhanced service standards, all supported by a fully cohesive marketing strategy. These efforts are proving to be fruitful, as the brand continues to attract the attention of new franchisees around the country.
Entrepreneurs Brooke and Brandy Pidgeon will own and operate the new Salem, Ohio location. As part of the revitalization and remodeling of the historic Timberlanes Complex, Quaker Steak will be located in the lower level off of Penn Avenue, in a space formerly known as Wallaby’s. This Quaker Steak location will be a smaller version of the iconic restaurant offering the full line of burgers, wings and more. In addition to Quaker Steak, the Timberlanes Complex is also home to a hotel, an event center/ballroom and another full-service restaurant, all located at 544 East Pershing St. in Salem.
“With our focus on strategic growth, Quaker Steak & Lube is very excited to be bringing our iconic brand with an energetic atmosphere and quality food to new fans across the country,” says Bruce Lane, Vice President. “We welcome Brooke and Brandy to the Quaker Steak family and look forward to helping them achieve immense success in their market.”
