F A C T S:
Customers trust a brand name; and many are willing to pay more for a branded product than a generic.
You may already have Cheesesteaks on your menu, and they likely do well.
But some Food Business owners like the idea of a "Brand Name", a colorful "LOGO", something that is eye-catching for customers, and has the "Look of a Franchise".
EASY TO INSTALL & Implement
NOTE: Within as little as 3 weeks, your location can be decorated with a Tommy B's banner, Menu Poster and Uniforms. And remember, you receive FREE training for your staff.
And, if I am available, and you would like me to, I'll help you with a Grand Opening!
The Tommy B's LOGO, Signs & Artwork are FUN, attractive and colorful. Your customers will remember the experience and come back for more Cheesesteaks and FUN, again and again!
The Trademark License requires the display of a banner, the display of a Menu Poster, and at least one employee wearing a hat and shirt.

TOMMY B'S Cheesesteaks are NOT "pre-made" frozen sandwiches.
TOMMY B'S Cheesesteaks are made using the same delicious method as a genuine South Philly Cheesesteak...
You will be selling Cheesesteaks, made on your grill, using top-quality ingredients you will purchase from your favorite food distributor.
You will receive a "shopping list" with the specific Brand Names of products that you must agree to use to make delicious TOMMY B'S Cheesesteaks.
I will demonstrate the preparation method that you must agree to use & follow.
The food cost percentage allows for an attractive profit margin.
If you are located within a 75 mile radius of Parsippany, NJ, I will visit your location to train you and your staff. (FREE Training!)
YOU MUST HAVE EQUIPMENT to make Cheesesteaks, such as a Grill, Hood Exhaust & Fire Suppression.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do NOT have a hood exhaust and a grill, there is an alternative method for preparing & selling TOMMY B'S Cheesesteaks using a Food Cooker/Warmer.
You must check with your local town's Fire Inspector to determine if a Cooker/Warmer requires a Hood Exhaust with Fire Suppression...towns differ in their requirements.
Great for C-Stores !!!
Q: If you sell Cheesesteaks now, do you really need to add TOMMY B’S?
think about this:
A Brand Name, with a colorful LOGO & Artwork, tends to attract customers, giving the impression of “a franchise”.
The fact is, people have confidence in franchises, because they are usually consistent in food quality and experience.
I'm confident that by adding a TOMMY B’S Menu Poster, Sign or Banner and Uniform, you will be adding FUN to your business, & should increase Cheesesteak sales and boost customer traffic.

Ross and Ross
Father & Son team!
Thursday December 17,2009 was the official "kickoff" for delicious Philly Cheesesteaks, Tommy Taters and Tommy Burgers at Atlantic Bagel Company...a friendly bagel & deli that is doing it right for their customers and employees.
Ross & Ross, a father & son team, make it happen. Their support and enthusiasm is to be credited for the tremendous sales figures for the opening day of TOMMY B'S.
The entire Atlantic Bagel staff, Stephanie, Courtney, Gina, Paul, Carlos, Benny, Gary, Steve, (best friend Tim), were all in uniform with big smiles and plenty of energetic support for TOMMY B'S.
That's the secret for the successful opening day: Everyone got behind the concept with full support. Even the owner's wife called to ask how the opening day was going! You could not ask for anything better.
A fax was sent out to 30 local businesses, and the result was tremendous. Customers were calling in orders, walking in with their orders...and one bite..SMILES on the faces of satisfied customers filled the store. Samples were given out, which then generated more orders...it was a great day !!!
Cheesesteaks were a hit...
TOMMY BURGERS were a hit...
TOMMY TATERS were a hit...
Yes indeed, TOMMY B'S added fun & sales to Atlantic Bagel Company!
