Founder of Jon Smith Subs
Jon Smith. Today he’s all about great subs, but his journey to the best sub has taken some interesting turns. While pouring his passion into infusing quality into the sandwich industry, he’s also an avid motorcycle rider, he pilots small planes, and he’s been a horse trainer. He’s won race car championships, formed his own band, and still had time to hone his business acumen in several other industries. Jon has opened and developed an ice cream concept, Grinders restaurant, and swimwear stores – all were sold successfully and are still in business today.
