Charleys Philly Steaks

Grilling up the #1 Cheesesteak in the World for more than 30 years

The #1 Cheesesteak in the World® was born (and raised) in Columbus, Ohio. More than 30 years ago, Charley Shin opened his first location at The Ohio State University campus – serving up fresh-grilled Philly Cheesesteaks, Gourmet Fries, and All-Natural Lemonades. Today, Charleys Philly Steaks is enjoyed by fans at 600 franchised locations in more than a dozen countries. The brand is rapidly growing with plans for as many as 1,000 locations by 2022.


Beyond its passion for Cheesesteaks, Charleys values giving back to the communities it serves. At participating locations, 20¢ from every combo meal sold supports the Charleys Kids Foundation, which partners with like-minded non-profit organizations to strengthen local communities and provide educational resources, food and mentorship to at-risk children. Benefactors in the Columbus Region include Asian American Community Services, Central Ohio Youth for Christ and Serving Our Neighbor Ministries.
