Quaker Steak & Lube

Casual-dining chain Quaker Steak & Lube signed a franchise agreement with Philadelphia commercial construction developer John Tripodi to open a new restaurant in Bensalem, Pa., approximately 20 miles northeast of Philadelphia. It is the first for the chain in the Philadelphia area. The full-service restaurant will be located at 2900 Street Road in a space formerly known as The Pub 2900.

The Bensalem Quaker Steak & Lube will be a 10,000 square foot, standalone full-service restaurant featuring a broad food menu, ample beer, wine and cocktail choices and a wide variety of entertainment and events. The restaurant has a targeted opening date of late 2019.

Quaker Steak & Lube operations are based in Westlake, Ohio, and the company has more than 40 casual-dining locations across the United States. This is the fourth deal inked by the chain in 2019.
