When the original PrimoHoagies opened in South Philadelphia, it seemed as if there was a hoagie shop on every street corner. PrimoHoagies knew that they needed to differentiate themselves from the competition and to emphasize the authentic Italian style of the hoagie, which is how it was originated.
It didn't take long for the neighborhood to realize the quality and authenticity that PrimoHoagies was serving. In a short period of time, lines began to form. The buzz in the neighborhood was tremendous. The demand for the product became so great that the decision was made to franchise the system. PrimoHoagies stores were beginning to pop up throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. PrimoHoagies’ unrelenting commitment to quality and consistency has led to the explosive growth that you see today.
The success of Primo is attributed to an excellent, long-tenured staff that regularly serves up a combination of quality, consistency, and originality. Our large and diverse menu features dozens of Specialty Hoagies, most of which are our very own original creations. Primo Hoagies are always made fresh to order, using only the finest Thumanns gourmet quality meats and cheese.
Through this expansion, Primo has managed to uphold the quality and consistency of product and service that has made us a favorite in every region that we are located. We will continue to be stringent in the selection process of prospective franchisees to ensure compatibility and sincerity for the right to join the Primo family and represent our name to the high standards that we've set since our inception. Our first and foremost priority is to never compromise our outstanding product and unique concept. This is our guarantee to our loyal and ever-growing clientele.
So remember, "It's not just a hoagie... It's a Primo".
