A brief history of Penn Station
Penn Station came into being in 1985 when Jeff Osterfeld decided to venture into the restaurant world just two years after graduating from Miami University. He wanted to expedite the ideas of an East Coast submarine restaurant and display cooking that had crossed his mind after leaving school. He then started a restaurant that he called “Jeffrey’s Delicatessen” in 1983. It was located in Dayton, Ohio. Jeff learned the ownership mentality and its importance in business while running this restaurant. One of the first major menu items in this restaurant was the cheesesteak sandwich, and it became a hit instantly. The popularity of the restaurant grew faster than expected and the first Penn Station restaurant was opened in Cincinnati in 1985.
Growth and development
Penn Station growth has been slow but sure. The restaurant was already a thriving business just two years after its inception and in 1987, Jeff Osterfeld started selling franchises. This led to the birth of St. Louis, Louisville, and Nashville locations. More locations continued to spring up and currently, the restaurant boasts of 313 locations in the US and counting.
Penn Station left tongues wagging a few years back when former President of the United States George W. Bush shared a Sandwich, with Carroll Senior High Students at a Penn Station restaurant at 3000 E Southlake Blvd. Penn Station felt honored to serve the 43 president of the US and more people visited the restaurant after this incident. Indeed, people from every corner of the US continued to show love for Penn Station menu prices, the staff, meals and generally everything about the chain.
Penn Station restaurant grew in leaps and bounds, and so did the menu. However, the menu grew in terms of the quality of food not the number of items. The first Penn Station restaurant only featured four sandwiches, cheese steak being one of them. Freshly squeezed lemonade and fresh-cut French fries were also offered, and they later became trademarks for the restaurant. Currently, the chain’s major menu items include grilled submarine sandwiches and these trademark items. Salads, wraps, extras, and beverages are also offered. There is a separate kids menu as well.
The meticulous preparation process of its sandwiches deserves a standing ovation. These sandwiches are prepared with the customer in mind. The quality of the ingredients is impeccable viz. hearth-baked bread, fresh hand-selected potatoes, USDA approved steak and premium-quality meats, vegetables and cheeses. This is one of the few restaurants where your orders are prepared right in front of your nose. Once you see the ingredients and the process, you can only thank God that Penn Station menu prices are the way they are. There is value for every penny you spend at Penn Station.
The slogan “It’s All About Good Taste” speaks volumes about the quality and taste of Penn Station meals. Even if you don’t like everything about the restaurant, Penn Station menu prices will tell you a story of care and concern for everyone who loves food. They cannot get better.
