About Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs

Goodcents first opened in the Kansas City Metropolitan area more than 25 years ago with a focus on providing deli fresh subs, house-baked breads and pasta made in the restaurant every day. Now called Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs rather than Mr. Goodcents, the company remains true to its singular focus: offering a fresh, quality experience to its customers by slicing sandwich meats and cheeses to order, baking fresh bread each day and providing hearty pasta meals cooked in its restaurants. Goodcents has more than 80 locations across eight states.

Company History

In 1961, 6 year old Joe Bisogno tested the waters of business ownership with a lemonade stand. He continued to build his savings account by sweeping barbershop floors, shining shoes, and running a paper route. Unlike most teenagers Joe invested his savings into his future. From 1972-1976 Joe owned and operated his own ice cream truck, gas station, and used car lot. "I always wanted to be in business for myself. I was always looking at how I could change things and make them better." For the next decade from 1976 to 1988 Joe learned important lessons in restaurant management by working at the McDonalds® Corporation. The most important of these lessons coming from chain founder, Ray Kroc: "If you take care of the customer, the customer will take care of you." On March 1, 1989, Joe opened his first Mr. Goodcents® Subs and Pastas restaurant in the Heart of America, Lenexa, Kansas. As Company Founder and CEO, even today Joe humbly continues to call himself the "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer" at Mr. Goodcents.

The rich culture of innovation and superior customer service that Joe began continues to make them a success today. Their icon, Mr. Goodcents himself represents the unwavering commitment they have to being a quick service concept focused on the values of trust, respect, and integrity. These values are evident in the fast, affordable, and fresh food they serve their guests daily. They are committed to "develop a business that works and make the little guy famous, by creating the ultimate customer experience and being the best employer in their communities!"

In becoming a nationwide, quick service favorite Mr. Goodcents Subs & Pastas has the long term goal to increase multi-unit franchisee ownership to 80% of the system. They are well-positioned to grow quickly across the major markets, and develop multi-unit franchisee opportunities across the United States.
