The Super Duper Cheese Steak Challenge originated in Dayton and just completed its fourth year, drawing hundreds of contestants from all over Ohio. "We hope to build this event in Columbus to be even bigger than Dayton's over the next few years," said Franchisor Brody Danner. "It is also our plan to help raise money for a worthy Columbus charity next year. We raised almost $18,000 for Dayton Children's this year and think we can generate a significant donation in central Ohio too," Danner said.
The Submarine House Bar & Grill is fast becoming a popular place for sports fans. They have numerous flat screen TV's, an expansive full bar and a menu featuring unique cheese steaks and oven-toasted submarine sandwiches. The menu also offers a line of pizzas, appetizers and healthier alternatives.
The Submarine House restaurants and now Bar & Grills, were founded in Dayton in 1973 and are now celebrating their 41st year in business. The franchise has seven Dayton area locations and an eighth and newest location in Hilliard. For more information, visit www.submarinehouse.com.
