Our History

When we turn the lights on each day and open our doors, we’re carrying on a piece of tradition that dates back over 35 years. We like to say we’ve been making sandwiches this way since 1979, creating a cult-like following wherever we’ve gone.

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.

Now, more than 15 years later with 18 corporate locations, 19 open franchise units, and 45 new units in development, we are growing faster than ever before. We’ve made strategic partnerships with some incredibly talented groups to help us as we grow. Klover Architecture, an award-winning architectural firm, has taken our build-out prototype to the next level, incorporating sustainability, innovation, and scalability to all aspects of our new stores. In addition, 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. All this to say, as we grow and begin to scale nationally, we are aware of and embrace our rich heritage.

We’ve grown a lot in the past 15 years and we’re excited to see what the future holds for the Planet Sub franchise. To follow along with our strides, check out the official PSUB Blog.
