About Primo Hoagies

Primo Hoagies specializes in Italian style hoagie sandwiches built around the original concept behind this famous and delicious offering. Our sandwiches are always made fresh to order, using only the finest Thumann's gourmet meats and cheeses. Our success is built on a long-tenured, experienced staff that's dedicated to quality, consistency, and originality. Our menu offers customers a large and diverse selection of specialty sandwiches, and most of what you'll find there are original Primo Hoagies creations, developed in-house, by us.

Values & History

The first Primo Hoagies location opened up in 1992 in South Philadelphia. At the time there were sandwich shops on every corner, and we knew we needed to offer something different to stand out from the competition. Emphasizing the authentic Italian style of the hoagie with quality, fresh ingredients, lines were soon forming daily at our small shop. Our popularity grew rapidly, and demand soon exceeded what we could deliver, so the decision to franchise the system was made and the rest is history. Today, Primo Hoagies operates more than 100 locations across the country thanks to its explosive growth.

Industry Performance

Sandwich and sub shops are poised for significant growth in the coming years, accounting for more than $25 billion in total revenue for the 2019 year alone. Growth over the previous five-year period averaged 3.4% annually, with the industry employing more than 400,000 people in more than 26,000 businesses across the nation.

Purchasing a Primo Hoagies Franchise

Franchise ownership under the Primo Hoagies brand requires franchise fees totaling $35,000. Prospective candidates will need to have a minimum net worth of $300,000 and access to liquid capital funds no less than $80,000. The total initial expected investment cost for this opportunity typically ranges from $196,200 to $351,500.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

We are looking for people with a passion for our product and owning their own business. People that are driven to succeed and to be the best in the foodservice industry are ideal. Motivation, positivity, and determination to be the best you can be — these are preferred qualities. Strong business acumen and organizational skills are critical for success. Franchisees need to plan on being owner-operators, taking an active role in the operation of their stores.

We require two individuals to train for at our facilities for a total of 80 hours before store opening, and we'll also have personnel on-site at your location during the opening to assist in training the rest of your staff. Continuous support is always available to help you improve your operation.
