Customers have been enjoying the great taste of Port of Subs sandwiches for over 30 years. In 1972, two brothers from New Jersey opened a modest submarine shop in Sparks, Nevada called the “Sub Shop”. John Larsen, a Public Accountant who had been advising the Sub Shop owners, seized the opportunity to purchase an interest in the business and later bought the business in 1975. After taking the helm, Larsen sponsored a community-wide contest to choose a name for the Sub Shop to differentiate it from imitators. In a review of more than 10,000 contest entries, Larsen chose the name…”Port of Subs”.You don’t have to be a sonar operator to appreciate this restaurant chain. Port of Subs operates and franchises more than 130 submarine sandwich shops in eight (8) Western states. The quick-service eateries feature several styles of freshly sliced sandwiches, as well as hot and wrap-style sandwiches, salads, and soups. About 30 locations are company-owned, while the rest are franchised. Founded with a single location in 1972, the company was acquired by CEO John Larsen in 1975.
