Quaker Steak & Lube, the dining chain that started in 1974 in an abandoned gas station in Sharon, plans to open 17 restaurants this year in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

A Plano, Texas, location opened recently and Medina, Ohio, and Columbia, S.C., restaurants are opening in the first quarter.

“We are well on our way to doubling our current footprint,” CEO John Longstreet said. The casual chain has nearly 60 locations in 19 states and Canada.

There are nine Western Pennsylvania restaurants. The company didn't specify where it will expand in the state.
