Primo Hoagies, the Philadelphia-born Italian specialty sandwich franchise, signed an agreement with Christopher Amico for the North Jersey area.
The new hoagie franchise location will be the first of three locations that Amico will be opening in the area. Primo Hoagies prides itself on offering guests high-quality, original products from a diverse menu, including the newest addition of an authentic Philly cheesesteak. Amico’s combination of corporate experience and small business ownership prepares him well for this role. He will be managing daily operations.
“We’re proud to have Chris join our team, as he will be a great asset to our brand,” says Rocco Fiorentino, president and CEO of Primo Hoagies. “The North Jersey market will soon be able to take a bite into our tradition and become part of the buzz that has taken over the East Coast since the start of the company,” adds Adam Biedenbender, vice president of development at Primo Hoagies. “We can’t wait to see the lines form at Chris’ store.”
Primo Hoagies, building on the momentum of the past year, has launched two multiunit deals in Atlanta and Charleston, and a single-unit deal in Bel Air, Maryland. At more than 90 locations across seven states, the new locations bring excitement and authenticity to several more communities.
“When I began to research different franchise opportunities, I was looking for a unique concept with a rich tradition that has the ability to bring people together,” Amico says. “As an Italian-American, I believe I found the perfect fit with Primo Hoagies. Nothing beats serving up a classic Italian staple that anyone can enjoy.”
Since its start in 1992, Primo Hoagies has been known for its high-quality hoagies that are “Baked Fresh, Sliced Fresh, Made Fresh.” Each hoagie is assembled with the freshest ingredients available in order to produce classics such as the Sharp Italian or Soprano. “When a new customer bites in to our sandwich, it practically smacks them in the face. They don’t expect that flavor profile,” Fiorentino says. The brand prides itself on offering award-winning sandwiches that combine quality, consistency, and originality.
