Sandwich shops are popular. Consumers spent $21B at sandwich and sub franchises last year alone, per IBISWorld. If you’re looking into owning a sub shop franchise, you know that there is a lot of overlap in the different sandwich brands. Bread products, fillings, condiments: it’s not rocket science. Jon Smith Subs wondered if it was possible to elevate the simple sub sandwich shop franchise to the next level, and we’re proud to say we have accomplished that goal.

Unique Fast-Casual Dining Experience

Our sub shop franchise is a fresh, new opportunity with a proven track record for success and serving high-quality subs right off the grill. The unique fast-casual dining experience includes delivering fresh and delicious food right to the table combined with a strong revenue stream from our varied catering events.

The Freshest, Finest Ingredients

People care about what they eat, now more than ever. Jon Smith Subs has always fared well against other sub shop franchises and fast food restaurants because we prioritize quality. We freshly bake our bread in the shop and slowly marinate our meats. Our choice of steak is sirloin, and our chicken is all white breast meat.

Quality means NO flap steak or beef knuckles; NO pre-sliced or preserved meats or vegetables; NO pre-cooked steak; NO pre-cooked chicken; NO dehydrated onions; NO gassed tomatoes; NO Tuna Helper; NO turkey roll. NO bologna. NO BALONEY! 

Made to Order

We don’t microwave, steam, pre-cook, pre-heat, or dehydrate at our sub shop franchise. No shortcuts necessary when you’re preparing quality food.

Ingredients Aren’t on Display

We chop and slice farm-fresh vegetables daily and keep them cool and crisp. Our ingredients aren’t out and on display all day or in seen behind a short glass for public view.

Regional Menu Development

Jon Smith Subs offers an array of appealing dishes, including well-known and popular subs to multiple options from the grill, as well as giant deli subs, salads, and numerous side options. We also support the development of regional menu items celebrating the cities that enjoy our subs and can’t be found elsewhere. From our Po Boy in Louisiana to our Lobster Roll in Boston, we customize our menu with our regional teams to suit the local customer.

There’s Always Room to Grow

We provide our franchisees with multiple income and growth opportunities and welcome them to invest in as many locations as they’d like. While some add new restaurants over time, some opt to open multiple locations right off the bat. Other franchisees choose to unlock even more revenue streams by becoming an Area Developer or Master Licensee.
