Sub shop franchises everywhere try to master a precise formula of ingredients to consistently satisfy what customers are craving. They’re trying to take the one-time visitor to their shop, and convert them into a “regular.”
There is no better feeling than discovering a local sandwich spot that checks all the boxes. In Philadelphia, sub shops are a community hub for conversation, family, and most importantly — flavor. Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why customers love this statewide staple!
1. We Love Nostalgia
There’s something about a sandwich we all love. You open your lunch box, reach in and grab a plastic bag with a tasty sandwich waiting inside. And what’s better than a bunch of fresh sandwiches for your family picnic? There’s something about a good sandwich that everyone can relate to.
Depending on where you live, some sandwiches are more iconic than others. In Philadelphia, it’s always been the Philly cheesesteak. With “whiz” or without, everyone in Philly remembers ordering their first cheesesteak. It might not be a new taste sensation every time, but it’s the consistently good memories people are searching for. That’s the mindset a sub shop like PrimoHoagies brings.
2. A Fantastic Foodie Atmosphere
There is a distinct difference between fast-food and fast-casual (only one is an atmosphere where you would actually enjoy eating.). Fast food restaurants aren’t designed to be an ideal spot to sit, chat, and snack. The fast-food formula is simple: pay, prepare, leave.
That model is fine for a certain demographic or a certain kind of on-the-go meal, but brands like PrimoHoagies realize there should be a middle ground between a typical sit-down restaurant and the convenience people love from typical fast food. PrimoHoagies sub shop franchises fill that niche with a fast-casual model that hits home for all types of customers, who they can grab a fresh sandwich to go in moments, or enjoy it in our stores in a warm atmosphere where they want to linger.
3. Become a Sandwich Scientist
Another thing people love about sandwiches is the ability to get creative — customers love variety! Think about it, these days you can put just about any combination of protein or veggie between two slices of bread. People love to exercise their inner chef and create new and exciting combinations that could become their new go-to. Our menu offers an incredible variety of options, which gives the customer the chance to customize their selection depending on their unique pallet. From our Italian Classics to our Philly Steaks — customers can walk through our doors and experience a familiar bite they love, or maybe try something brand new!
