Customers have been enjoying the great taste of Port of Subs® sandwiches for 40 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®”.
