Zero's Subs Franchise

Submarine sandwich restaurant


In 1967, Gene Schmidt started ZERO'S SUBS. He wanted to build a chain of sub shops that offered an alternative approach to fast food. His approach was simple; hot oven-baked submarine sandwiches, made to order with quality ingredients and a level of service that would become ZERO'S SUBS banner of excellence. In 1969, Gene was joined by his cousin, Martin Palacios, and his brother, John Schmidt, who shared in Gene's belief for high quality, friendly service and outstanding value.

ZERO'S SUBS is proud of over three decades of successful, prosperous business and continues to make changes to reflect the changing times and trends. We are looking to the future by implementing an aggressive franchise program. This might be the personal financial independence and success you have been looking for!

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
