It all starts here!

Authentic food. Passion for people. 

We put a lot of thought into what we should say on our franchising page. We've been around for 35 years, but chances are, you may be discovering Planet Sub for the first time, and you might be thinking: 'What is Planet Sub all about?' We thought about focusing on our home made bread as a big point of difference from Planet Sub to other brands you may have seen. The fact is, we're the only chain mixing our bread from scratch at each store, it's something we like to hang our hat on, and yes, it does taste amazing, but we believe we are more than just home made bread from scratch. We also figured you'd want to know about all of the support we give to new franchisees; everything from national real estate assistance, award winning architectural partnerships, and the ability to train with seasoned veterans who have been successfully operating stores for over 15 years. But what is it? What can we tell someone who's never heard of Planet Sub to give them an idea of who we really are? Here's what we came up with:

We want people to be fulfilled. Food should not just sustain, it should satisfy. Our build-outs shouldn't just be inviting, they should be inspiring and should use sustainable materials. Our franchisees shouldn't just survive, they should thrive. We want to find people who are passionate about creating opportunity, committed to maintaining brand and personal integrity, and who have a desire to change the way the world looks at sandwiches, one sub at a time. 

Where We're From

Planet Sub has always felt like a break from the droning grind of the corporate cookie cutter lifestyle we have all become so accustomed to. Sean and Jeff opened their first Planet Sub franchise in 1998, born from the legendary Yello Sub restaurant in Lawrence, KS., and shared with their hometown a sandwich that has since become a Kansas City tradition. 

Where We Are

Now, 16 years later with 18 corporate locations and 17 open franchise units, and 45 new units in development under current area development agreements, we are growing faster than ever before. We've partnered with B.R.R. Architects, an award winning architectural firm to take our build-out prototype to the next level, and our real estate brokerage RED Legacy has been pairing our newest franchisees with veteran retail brokers who had managed the national roll-outs of high profile QSR brands like ours.  

Where We’re Going

Now, we are inviting you to join the Planet Sub family at a time when our vision and mission have never been stronger. What does that mean for you? It means you get all the benefits of an established (and loved) brand, and that you can join a concept that isn’t just a blast to operate, and wildly delicious, but also one that's been built on proven ground.
