JON SMITH SUBS Expands its Footprint throughout Central Florida

New Oviedo Restaurant to Officially Open its Doors on Sept. 25 

South Florida’s original home of fresh-grilled premium steak, chicken, and other premium subs is about to blaze a new trail in the restaurant industry when new franchise owners, Troy and Tina Ather, open their first Jon Smith Subs franchise on Mon., Sept. 25  in Oviedo.

“When any restaurant concept is built around this kind of quality taste and positive guest experiences, it’s no surprise that guests are eager for our doors to finally open,” Troy Ather said about his soon-to-open franchise location. The new Jon Smith Subs, located at 3607 Aloma Avenue, Suite. 1071, will be making its grill-mark debut in Central Florida with the freshly prepared, generously portioned hot subs and award-winning crispy fries that have made the Jon Smith Subs name famous for nearly 30 years.

In honor of the newest location in Oviedo, the brand will be celebrating its flagship restaurant by providing the first 50 guests in line by 10:00 a.m. free 6-inch subs of their choice for a year!*

“Jon Smith Subs’ signature sandwiches feature high-quality meats and fresh vegetables served hot off the grill,” added Troy Ather. “We are proud to be a part of this fast-growing franchise and to be the first to open a location in a new market. The food truly stands apart from other sub shops with its quality and consistency, and the guest experience is second to none.”

Oviedo’s new Jon Smith Subs restaurant will be open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., and closed on Sundays.

*After purchase, the first 50 customers in line will receive a coupon good for one free 6-inch sub per month for 12 months. This offer is valid after 09/25/17; limited one coupon per visit.

Jon Smith, the company’s namesake, founded the sub restaurant in 1988. He’s been described as an adventurer, seeking thrills of every sort. Through the years, he’s been an avid motorcyclist, a small airplane pilot, a horse trainer, a race car champion, and a star in his own band, while also launching several successful businesses.

The same adventurous passion he has for life has translated itself into Jon Smith Subs and his “thrill for the grill.” The casual dining, fast, table-service concept offers high-quality sub sandwiches prepared with fresh ingredients and boasts consistently superior taste, visit after visit. Smith refined methods and systems for everything related to sandwich making, starting with selection and efficient handling of premium meats that range from marinated sirloin steaks and whole breast of chicken, to tuna, hot pastrami, or authentic Italian cold cuts, all of which are hand sliced in each restaurant. Guests are welcome to add the brand’s popular crispy fries to any order for an additional cost.
