There is no shortage of sandwich shops, I bet you can name 5 of them without even thinking about it, soon there will be another franchise of sub shops in Minnesota providing yet another option.

With brands like Subway, Jimmy John's, Jersey Mike's, Erbert & Gerbert’s, and many more, it's surprising that there seems to be an endless supply of sandwich franchises, a new one with over 50 years of making sandwiches is set to open 60 stores in Minnesota.


What New Sub Shop is Coming to Minnesota?

According to QSR Magazine, Port of Subs, a sub shop chain headquartered in Reno, NV and with over 140 locations, mostly in the Western United States, is expected to expend into Minnesota with its first location opening within 6 months and at least 12 more locations opening in 18 months.

Port of Subs will launch its initial stores around the 7-county Twin Cities metro area, no plans were announced to expand beyond  that at this point, they say that communities around Minneapolis and St. Paul are priorities right now.

Pat Mancuso will lead the Port of Subs charge into Minnesota, he says that he first tasted their sandwiches at the Las Vegas airport and was "immediately hooked."

What Makes Port of Subs Different?

Ports of Subs doesn't seem to be doing anything particularly groundbreaking, they offer the standard selection of hot and cold subs, wraps, and salads, like every other sub shop. One thing that did catch my attention though was their breakfast sandwiches with options like bacon, ham or turkey sausage all with eggs and toppings on a sub bun. They also offer some unique sides like a macaroni salad and a potato salad.
