  1. Ponderosa® is a limited service, family oriented steakhouse with a buffet that offers well over 100 fresh, flavourful, quality cold, hot, sweet and savoury product offerings at a value price point.
  2. Unlike many other restaurant chains in its space that only offer lunch and dinner, Ponderosa offers better utilization of the franchisee's assets as it can offer three day parts: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  3. The food bar offers the ability to align food offerings to local tastes. To be sure, there are 'required' items on the food bar, and the complexion of the concept needs to stay 'American', but within those parameters there is the flexibility to tailor offerings to each market. This flexibility also keeps the food offerings from getting 'stale' as Ponderosa could, with very little effort, rotate food-bar items by day, by season, by holiday, etc., thereby keeping the food offerings fresh.
  4. 50 years of experience gives the concept a tremendous history that allows it to anticipate the evolution of the business and the challenges it is likely to face in each new international market; and the tools (that are tried and tested) to guide the growth and address the challenges.
  5. Reasonable franchise fee and royalties compared to other chains in this space.

Training & Support

We provide 7 weeks of initial training to restaurant managers/owners at no additional charge. A designated franchisee principal will participate in a distinct training program, 3 weeks with position training and 4 weeks of shift management training. Our initial training program is offered as needed during the year depending on the number of new franchisees entering the System, the number of other personnel needing training, and the scheduled opening of new franchises.
