Get into Gear for our Newest Open Project!

We're REVVED UP for our latest Open Project!


Nothing brings people together quite like food does… Now’s your chance to turn your lifelong memories at Quaker Steak & Lube into cold hard cash through Zooppa’s latest Open Project!

Quaker Steak & Lube Open Project

With 43 locations in 12 states across the US, Quaker Steak and Lube Restaurants are the intersection of friend, family, food, and fun.

Their restaurants combine unique décor (such as gas station memorabilia, classic cars and motorcycles) with craveable food and high-octane entertainment events.

Quaker Steak & Lube has won hundreds of national and international awards for its food, 20+ wing sauces, and holds the title of “Best Wings USA”.

Open Project Details

This one is for all of our photographers. Introducing our newest Open Project: The Quaker Steak & Lube Experience! Plan a trip to your local QSL with your friends and family and bring your camera along to snap photographs of your gathering on location. 

With big plans for national growth and expansion on the horizon, we need to build a library of photos to help promote QSL restaurants’ appeal to all walks of life.

There is $12,000 USD up for grabs for up to 10 of the best photographers and storytellers. The winning photo series will be featured across a range of physical and digital assets (social media, print, and promotional materials, etc).

What We Need From You

A photo series of 3–10 uncropped but retouched (in your unique style) images in PDF format that tells a cheerful, lighthearted, and upbeat story of friends and family coming together at Quaker Steak & Lube.

We want genuine, lifestyle photos (either indoor or outdoor) AT a Quaker Steak & Lube location. We’re also looking for photo series that highlights diversity, varying group sizes, different age ranges, and variety in food and beverage options!

Get creative and attend an event at your local QSL restaurant with your friends—a car or bike show, live events, parties, etc. Find the closest restaurant to you and check the local Quaker Steak & Lube’s Facebook page for more information.

(Bonus points for featuring an “Eat Heat” Challenge!

We want YOU to make us feel INSPIRED to get our friends together and get down to our closest Quaker Steak & Lube Restaurant.
