FRANCHISEES
The Steak 'n Shake training and support team is fantastic. They jumped in when we needed assistance or additional training and backed off when we were able to move forward on our own within the system.

There are always challenges in opening a new restaurant, but with each hurdle, we felt strong support from the Steak 'n Shake brand. Overall, our organization has been ecstatic with the Steak 'n Shake process.
