About Submarine House



We Have Had The Recipe For Success Since 1973

You may be asking yourself what makes Submarine House different than all the other sub shops out there, and we are glad that you asked! Let’s first just say, A Lot! We have had consistent success since 1973, and over the years we have continued to evolve, create great products, develop our policies and procedures, and fine tune our franchise support. We do this by being owner-operators of the business! That is right, we own and operate Submarine House locations every day, which allows us to continue to always improve our systems and be a great franchisor. We find the best way to assist franchisees in reaching their success is to be one ourselves.




All franchise members can also take advantage of our targeted, corporate marketing strategy, designed to raise awareness regarding Submarine House Bar & Grill offerings and value. We provide regular in-store promotions, print ads, an online image library and more, to build customer loyalty and extend the brand geographically. Specifically, we’ve developed strategies geared toward our diverse consumers: an optimized website, submission to local listings, email program, regular advertisements in consumer publications, social media marketing and direct mail to local businesses promoting delivery and lunch options.

We’re looking to expand our brand and are always seeking interested, qualified individuals to become franchisees. As an owner/operator, you’ll have tremendous potential to achieve your personal goals of financial independence by building off a brand that’s established, executing a plan that’s easy to ramp-up and by maximizing proven strategies to drive profit.




Over time the world has evolved and so has Submarine House, evolving from a delicious traditional sub shop to much more. Over the years, we have expanded our menu well above the traditional sandwich shop. In 2006, we saw the demand to create an environment completely different from the competition. We introduced a full bar, large screen TV’s, Keno and live entertainment, and created a fun, social environment for our customers. Since this time, we have continued to set ourselves apart from others in the fast-casual dining experience, and provide a fun filled environment where people can enjoy spending time with friends. It is a concept and environment that you will not find elsewhere!




We are famous for introducing the East Coast Cheesesteak to Ohio, but that was not enough, we expanded our menu to include oven-toasted deli subs, salads, appetizers, pizza, wings and more. Our 16” subs blow away those 12” sub competitors that you find around town, and ours are a step above! We do all this while sourcing the highest quality of ingredients. Our bread is baked fresh daily, we use fresh produce, and we slice all of our deli meats and cheeses.




Each franchisee is an extension of the Submarine House family! Your success is the highest level of importance to us. We are only successful when our franchisees are successful. Therefore, we have chosen to provide much more support than other franchisors. Our support begins when you sign your franchise agreement. We assist in finding financing, site selection, construction, corporate training, on-site training, and continued operational and marketing support. We help with it all!
