A Legacy Of Giving

Since 1972 it’s been about more than creating quality sub sandwiches; it’s been about making a difference for those in the communities we call home. Through our Make It Better Foundation, we provide support in three areas of interest vital to any community: youth education, hunger and health & wellness.

We create healthier communities by supporting causes and organizations that directly impact the quality of life of people in the areas we call home.

Punt Pass Kick

We aid the fight against hunger by providing food and monetary donations to organizations focused on helping those in need.

Block out hunger

We support four high school students each year who make a difference on and off the court by awarding them $20,000 for their excellence in academics, sports leadership and community service.

Local At Heart

Our local sub shop owners believe in being Better at Heart  and have a long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities they serve. Whether it’s supporting reading programs, hosting donation nights for local schools, providing nonprofits with healthier food options or donating food to local shelters, they are passionate about making it better.
