Making A Name In The Sandwich Business

As your neighborhood sandwich shop, Port of Sub has been bringing people together since 1972. Our story began over 45 years ago, when two brothers from New Jersey opened a modest submarine shop in Sparks, Nevada called the “Sub Shop”. John Larsen and his family seized the opportunity to purchase an interest in the business and later bought the company in 1975. After taking the helm, we sponsored a community-wide contest to choose a name for the Sub Shop to differentiate it from imitators. In a review of more than 10,000 contest entries, the name “Port of Subs” was born.

Port of Subs® has developed a proven, effective system of operation. Between 1975 and 1985 the Larsens developed ten company-owned units. Throughout the years many people approached them asking for units in other cities because the quality and taste of our product was outstandingly unique. Port of Subs began franchise opportunities in 1985, and is still proudly recognized as a top franchising company. As of today, Port of Subs® has more than 135 units open in seven Western states.

Over the years, the Port of Subs brand has become synonymous with quality sandwich making and superior customer service. Our made-fresh-to-order sandwiches are prepared while the customer looks on. The unique taste comes from freshly sliced, top quality meats and cheeses, freshly baked breads, and zesty dressings and spices. We also offers Signature Hot Subs, Specialty Subs and Wraps, Fresh Salads, Breakfast Favorites, fresh baked desserts and a variety of refreshing beverages. And customers LOVE our extensive line of catering options – featuring subs and party trays.
