About Taste of Philly

One item that has made Philadelphia famous and has been enjoyed by its natives is the hoagie. It reflects the strong presence of Italian heritage that began primarily in South Philadelphia, around the original colonial settlements. Some will dispute its origin, but no one can dispute its popularity there and in the surrounding region. Legend has it that the name involves Philadelphia’s Hog Island and originated during World War I. Italian shipyard workers combined meats and cheeses on long rolls and named them after the island. Others contend that the sandwich size was enough to fill a hog. While the legend, either this or others, may not be real, the strong ties to the community are undeniable.
Each of our restaurants is individually owned and operated. We are always looking to open new restaurants and expand. A dozen high-volume stores currently stretch from Denver to Colorado Springs, and Taste of Philly is now looking beyond Colorado. We have a good market in Denver, and we are going to take a more rapid approach to expanding.
