Slicing Fresh Since 1972 

As your neighborhood sandwich shop, Port of Subs has been bringing people together since 1972. Our story began when two brothers from New Jersey opened a modest submarine shop in Sparks, Nevada, known as the “Sub Shop”. Yet, it was John Larsen and his family who recognized the potential and gained full ownership in 1975. Determined to set themselves apart from imitators, they launched a community-wide contest to find a new name. After reviewing over 10,000 entries, the name “Port of Subs” emerged as the clear choice. nIn 1985, we embraced the franchise model to meet consumer demand.
 

Today, Port of Subs stands tall as a leading franchising company in the quick-service restaurant industry. In 2023, Port of Subs caught the attention of Area 15 Ventures, a distinguished investment firm led by Dave Liniger, the co-founder and former CEO of RE/MAX. Drawing from our rich legacy, core values, and rock-solid business model, Liniger and his team are bringing their franchise expertise to fuel accelerated growth and rapid expansion of the brand. As we ride the wave of success, we’ll bring the unique taste of Port of Subs to more neighborhoods than ever before.

Regional Developers

Arizona, prepare yourselves for another sub-sandwich takeover! Port of Subs, the 50-year legacy sandwich brand, is growing yet again in the Grand Canyon state. Local entrepreneurial couple Shane and Kirstin Shaw signed a regional development agreement to develop 10 locations across the state over the next several years. The Shaw’s bring a wealth of experience across several roles, including sales, management and restaurant operations, making them the ideal candidates to bring Port of Subs to even more communities than ever before. The dive into franchising has been a long time in the making for the Shaw’s, who were waiting for the perfect concept to begin this journey. “We live near an existing Port of Subs location, and quickly became frequent customers because of how fresh and customized the sandwiches are,” said Kirstin Shaw. “After meeting with the team and learning about the opportunity, Port of Subs truly turned into everything we’d been looking for. As we began searching for business opportunities, we knew we wanted a concept where we not only loved the product but also resonated with the culture. Port of Subs was just that, and we’re eager to begin our journey.” With site selection underway, the Shaw’s are aiming to open their first Port of Subs location by the beginning of 2025. The first location will be near a local hospital, tech hubs, hotels and multifamily housing making Port of Subs the perfect fit for a bustling community. Additional locations will be in the surrounding areas of Mesa and Queen Creek. The Shaw’s are also bringing a touch of community giveback to their hometown. “We are really looking forward to working with and giving back to our community,” said Kirstin. “We want to give back to those who need it most. From local shelters to helping our foster community or working with schools – we can’t wait to be more involved.”
