About Us

Since 1977 Submarina has been making premier sub sandwiches using fresh baked bread and only the highest quality meats, cheeses, and ingredients. Anchored with a strong presence in the greater San Diego and Inland Empire areas we have recently begun an aggressive expansion. We are both Coasts, five states and Guam, and have franchisees opening restaurants in at least two other states. We are most excited about opportunities to expand: from Orange County California North to San Francisco and up the Coast to Seattle; Colorado; throughout Texas where we have several more restaurants opening later this year; Oklahoma where we have our first restaurant due to open within two months, Tennessee and Florida.

Submarina is different from the other sub restaurants in many ways:

  • We offer more and healthier sandwich and salad options.
  • We are the premium product on the market.
  • Submarina meats, cheeses and condiments are of premium quality and selection.
    A difference you can smell, see and taste.
  • Submarina customers have a choice of superior breads, rolls and wraps

Training and Support

Submarina 02

Submarina franchises receive excellent support from the moment they sign their franchise agreement. Our virtually turn-key system will guide you through financing, site selection, design and construction, equipment procurement and signage. Our support team will be with you every step of the way.

Once your plan is in place you will begin training, the Submarina way. Not only do you attend training at our San Marcos Support Center and local restaurants, but we provide on-site training at YOUR restaurant during pre-opening/crew training, opening, and post-opening. We also offer daily on-going operational support via live person and through our intranet system.

"Submarina has been a great company to deal with. I own both franchised and non-franchised businesses. Submarina has the best concept of any of the companies I deal with. When a customer walks into my store they always say 'WOW'! The best way to describe the whole Submarina process is First Class!".
- Ray Hedgecock , Submarina owner and Area Developer, Valdosta, GA.

"The Submarina Support Center has a fantastic group of individuals making sure we open successfully. Our first store to open in Guam had its challenges, but from procurement to marketing, Submarina has been there to support us."
