“We know that in the United States, nobody eats because they’re hungry – customers want an experience,” Charley says. “We’re always working on ways to increase our customer base, and by adding wings to our menu, we get to broaden our appeal. Our cheesesteaks are already head and shoulders above anything found in Philadelphia, and we’re just going to continue to treat our customers as individuals and ensure that they’re happy when they leave our restaurants. This has been the secret to our success.”
