The Raikes brothers, Larry & Mitch, built their first submarine sandwich shop in Jacksonville, Florida in 1982. They made their very first subs using the highest quality deli meats and cheeses available, topped off with fresh produce delivered daily like iceberg lettuce, vine-ripe tomatoes and the finest onions. Today, the ingredients have not changed and neither has the brother’s commitment to quality.
After seeing the response the first store received, the two were inspired to branch out and take their concept nationwide. With more than 30 years of hands-on experience, the Raikes brothers built a tradition of quality that has never been surpassed. Larry’s Giant Subs has achieved growth and success with a continuing commitment to making the best sub sandwiches on the planet.
Larry’s Giant Subs is the only sub chain out there that focuses on serving healthy and nutritional products. Our Roast Beef is ALL NATURAL, Black Angus USDA choice with no injections. We use Raikes Farms Antibiotic-Free Turkey Breast and Grilled Chicken Breast, which is: Antibiotic Free, Hormone Free & Sustainably Farmed.
