  • Douglassville, PA  (two stores)
  • Pittsburgh, PA (two stores)
  • Pittston, PA (one store)
  • Summerville, SC (two stores)
  • Washington, D.C. (three stores)


More than half of these new stores are expected to open in 2021. 

“We were fortunate to be able to continue to grow PrimoHoagies during the past year thanks to our well-established takeout service and our expansion into additional curbside pick-up and delivery options as well as an enhanced focus on dinner items,” says PrimoHoagies Chief Executive Officer Nicholas Papanier, Jr. “What’s more, our reputation for high-quality, fresh ingredients that come together to create an unforgettable meal has led to demand for locations in new markets – and we can’t wait to bring PrimoHoagies to new communities of customers.”

PrimoHoagies prides itself on providing the highest quality ingredients, including Thumann’s gourmet meats and cheeses and its award-winning seeded rolls baked fresh in-store throughout the day – all prepared specifically for PrimoHoagiesusing recipes passed down through generations. The iconic hoagies, including the most popular Italian variety, also contain a secret blend of spices and locally sourced, fresh vegetables that deliver a memorable, made-to-order lunch or dinner experience. The casual restaurant’s menu features a wide variety of cold and hot hoagies, cheesesteaks, wraps, vegetarian options, sides, chips, drinks, cookies, desserts, and more. A wide array of catering options is also available for special events, holidays, gamedays, and corporate luncheons.

“So many of our PrimoHoagies franchisees are loyal customers who want to bring the quality ingredients, unique homemade flavors, and welcoming store environment to their own neighborhoods,” says Papanier Jr. “As our customer base continues to grow and seek multiple ways to enjoy our hoagies – whether it be at their dinner table, in the car on the way to soccer, or in the office lunchroom – PrimoHoagies offers an excellent opportunity for those seeking to own a business.”
