Customers have been enjoying the great taste of Port of Subs sandwiches for
over 35 years. In 1972, two brothers from New Jersey opened a modest
submarine shop in Sparks, Nevada called the “Sub Shop”. John Larsen, a
Public Accountant who had been advising the Sub Shop owners, seized the
opportunity to purchase an interest in the business and later bought the
business in 1975. After taking the helm, Larsen 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, Larsen chose the
name…”Port of Subs”.
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 their products was outstandingly
unique. Therefore, with the help of Francorp, the nation’s largest franchise
consulting firm, the company began franchising in 1985.
Over the years the Port of Subs brand has become synonymous with quality
sandwich making and superior customer service. Port of Subs made-fresh-
to-order sandwiches are prepared while the customer looks on and the
unique taste comes from freshly sliced, top quality meats and cheeses,
freshly baked breads and zesty dressings and spices. Port of Subs also offers
a breakfast sandwich, hot sandwiches, fresh salads, chips, an extensive line
of party trays, desserts and a variety of refreshing beverages.
Currently Port of Subs has over 150 units open in seven Western states.. Over
the years Port of Subs has developed a proven, effective system of operation
that will give you the edge necessary to create a thriving business.
