October 23, 2012 // Franchising.com // Milford, OH - Penn Station East Coast Subs, the fast casual restaurant known for its legendary Philadelphia Cheesesteak Sub sandwich, served hot and made-to-order on freshly baked French bread, has opened its 250th restaurant. Penn Station opened location No. 249 and No. 250 Tuesday, Oct. 23 in Plymouth, Mich., and Pikeville, Ky. There are four more openings scheduled for 2012.
