Regional Developers

40+ Key Markets Available for Development!

Port of Subs is positioned for rapid growth, and we’re actively seeking partners to join us in bringing the “your neighborhood sandwich shop” experience to communities nationwide! With over 50 years of operational excellence, you’ll be partnering with an established brand that is committed to supporting your business goals.

As a Port of Subs Regional Developer, you’ll secure the rights to open franchise units in a protected territory. Regional developers are compensated with half of the franchise fee for opening support and half of the royalty income for ongoing support, creating a tremendous economic platform for growth and success. After opening your first restaurant, you can meet your development schedule by opening additional units, as well as having independent franchises open in the market. This limits the amount of capital you’ll need to deploy and create an additional revenue stream.
