Take a Bite of History: Get to Know Our Beginnings

How Did We Come to Be?

For those who are curious about how Jon Smith Subs came to be, the tale is simple. Our founder, Jon Smith, started out by purchasing two sandwich shops in 1988. However, he soon realized that their performance was not what it could have been, so he set out to improve them. One thing led to another, until he had made extensive changes to not just the menu and the pricing but also the day-to-day operations of running a sandwich shop, which showed their worth in their effect on his businesses’ continuing expansion.

In time, Jon Smith started to expand, which brought in the funds needed to fuel further expansion, thus kick-starting a self-perpetuating cycle. As a result, he now owns franchises throughout Palm Beach County in Florida. Furthermore, there are now Jon Smith Subs franchises in countries all around the world, which speaks volumes about what our founder accomplished through his improvements.

For proof of our success, look no further than the fact that we have carved out a solid position for ourselves in the restaurant industry, which is notorious for its high level of competition in spite of the fact that it totals more than $782 billion and counting.

This is primarily because we have provided our franchisees with extensive support ranging from skills training to the latest in best practices. However, it should also be noted that we have never forgotten the fundamentals of running a sandwich shop, which means mouth-watering food made using the freshest ingredients and delivered to our customers within the shortest period of time possible.
