Port of Subs Plots First Time Nationwide Franchise Expansion
For the first time in over 50 years, the popular west-coast based QSR chain Port of Subs is finally expanding nationwide.
A top ranked franchise concept with a delicious menu, Port of Subs is starting to make its presence known on the national stage. Utilizing a regional developer model, Port of Subs is attracting multi-unit operators, restaurant investors, and new franchise owners across the country.
Veteran multi-unit franchisees Jay and Michael Taylor jumped at the chance to spread their passion for Port of Subs, inking a 40-unit deal to spearhead the brand's growth throughout Northern Utah. For the brothers, who opened their first Port of Subs location in 2010, signing on as the brand’s first regional developers is a dream come true. "With our extensive entrepreneurial background, along with Jay's deep experience in business operations and my construction expertise, our roles as regional developers merge experience and innovation, ensuring a seamless opening process that sets the stage for success from day one," says Michael Taylor.
Port of Subs Set for Nationwide Expansion as a Top Ranked Franchise Brand
Long known for serving up the highest quality sandwiches, made fresh to order with premium ingredients and exceptional customer service, Port of Subs' rapid expansion plans are backed by Area 15 Ventures, a dynamic Colorado-based private equity firm that acquired the Nevada-based quick service restaurant chain earlier this year. Under the strategic guidance of Area 15 Ventures, led by entrepreneur Dave Liniger, the notable founder of RE/MAX, Port of Subs looks to build on the brand's rich legacy of success.
Angad Singh, the second regional developer for Port of Subs, is poised to introduce twenty new locations to the vibrant Greater Denver area. His choice of Port of Subs reflects a seamless alignment with his family's extensive experience as multi-unit, multi-market operators of renowned franchise brands, such as 7-Eleven and another nationally recognized sandwich brand. "It's thrilling to have the opportunity to partner with a brand that feels close to home, and even more exciting to be one of the first to fully utilize the regional development model in place," Singh says. "Having grown up in Reno, I know the potential this brand has to grow on a national scale."
