Restaurant Ownership Never Tasted So Good

Guests have been enjoying the great taste of Port of Subs®’ sandwiches for over 40 years. In 1972, two brothers from New Jersey opened a modest submarine sandwich shop in Sparks, Nevada called the “Sub Shop”. John Larsen, a Public Accountant who had been advising the Sub Shop owners, seized the opportunity and purchased the business in 1975. After taking the helm, Larsen sponsored a community-wide contest to choose a new name. In a review of more than 10,000 contest entries, Port of Subs® was born.

Today, Port of Subs® has over 140 restaurants and is expanding throughout the West. We have stayed true to our beginnings and still make each sandwich fresh to order as our guests look on.

Sandwich’s Best-Kept Secret…

The industry recognizes Port of Subs® as one of the top franchising opportunities.

Unlike most of our competition, we own and operate a substantial number of Port of Subs® restaurants representing approximately 25% of our chain. This represents an investment of well over $5,500,000. Unlike our competitors, we have invested in our own restaurants because we believe in our product and in our system. After over 40 years in business and over 140 restaurants open and operating, we understand franchisees come first. Our system is simple; we grow the brand with integrity by recruiting the most qualified franchisees possible and working with them to find the best possible locations. Since Port of Subs® owns and operates corporate restaurants throughout the system, we stay informed about the daily operations and challenges restaurant operators face. We pass along proven practices and procedures.
