Port of Subs

Port of Subs is a franchise submarine sandwich shop located exclusively in the western United States and headquartered in Reno, Nevada. It was founded in Sparks, Nevada under the name "Sub Shop" in 1972 by two brothers from New Jersey. John Larsen, a Public Accountant who had been advising the brothers, purchased the company in 1975 and renamed it Port of Subs after holding a community-wide contest for its new name. Between 1975 and 1985, ten more shops were established before Port of Subs became a franchise. The shop now has more than 140 locations throughout the western US. It can be found in Nevada, California, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. The main focus of Port of Subs is freshly sliced meats and cheeses, as opposed to the pre-sliced options from competitors such as Subway. While nowhere near the size of Subway, Port of Subs is still seen somewhat frequently throughout the regions it operates in. Port of Subs celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012.==External links==
