Submarine House Bar & Grill Franchise Opportunity

Submarine House bar topThe Submarine House, built in Dayton in 1973, was the first to introduce the East Coast Cheese Steak to Ohio. Today, we serve everyone's favorite sandwich in a Bar & Grill environment, setting us apart from the crowd of pizza and wing places. Sub House Bar & Grills offer customers a full menu featuring numerous cheese steak options, salads, oven-toasted deli subs, appetizers, desserts and more! While we offer a variety of options, we're known for our 16" subs, with "The Works", surpassing those 12" subs. The franchise generates more revenue from additional sources, including our full bar service with a wide array of mixed drinks, beers and wines. The fast-casual environment with large screen televisions, game consoles, Keno and live music - making this original restaurant a new classic. We were even voted "Best Submarine Sandwich" on in two of the last three years.

Submarine House bar topAs part of the expanding Submarine House Bar & Grill franchise, you will take part in a well-planned vision that can offer excellent returns within the first year of business and the potential for financial independence. Our Bar & Grills capitalize on the convergence of several trends influencing buying behavior and giving us a unique, sustainable advantage. The first identified trend is community and entertainment in a bar and grill environment. Customers today are looking for a sense of community outside of the workplace and home. To address this trend, we've added many flat-screen televisions, arcade style games, trivia and live entertainment. The trend toward the fast casual atmosphere has also shaped our business model, as this market has more than doubled in size over the past five years. Results from market research show that fast casual is considered a healthier substitute for fast food and nearly half of consumers are willing to pay more for fresh, superior quality food. Yet, customers are still searching for convenience, which is why our carryout, delivery and catering options have such strong appeal. We also offer healthier menu items and fresh, quality ingredients. While these trends will ebb and flow through the years, the concept of the community bar and grill remains intact in American culture.

Targeted Marketing
