    Default Primo's Coming To South Street...

    I checked Primo Hoagie's website and it says they are coming soon to South Street! It would be interesting to see where, and if the numbnut associations fight their takeout variance.

    Wow, they really grew that business. Never knew they had that many locations all over PA, NJ, DE. They're in Maryland and Virginia too.

    From what I understand, they told that guy he'd never make it at that original Ritner location. Oops.

    south street started to lose its character back in the 80s when the franchise stores started to trickle in.

    I think the reason Primos succeeds in areas with other good hoagie shops is twofold. One, they have a pretty good product. Not cheap, but good. Two, they have longer hours than many locally owned shops. Witness the success of Primos in Roxborough that is two blocks down from hoagie heaven, Lenny's. Primos has made money because of Lenny's more limited hours.

    Actually, I would say because they make an excellent sandwich, not just good.

    I can agree with that. I still prefer Lenny's or Sarcone's but sometimes I don't decide to have a hoagie for dinner before 4!!!

    Primos is probably our best local chain at this point, period. Consistently delicious hoagies and good ingredients and if someone starts going off on how their rolls are too tough I want to preemptively say "**** you and your dentures grandpa".

    There is a primo's by me at work and a year or so ago there was a sarcone's as well (Cherry Hill) about a block away from where Primo's is. I liked Sarcones, but I have never actually had a craving for them like I do for a Primo's.

    the Sarcone's franchises (i think there are only a few) aren't up to the level of the original. My friend said he was talking to the owner of the west chester one who said that sarcone's pretty much just supplies the bread and name.

    Interesting. I only know about the original Sarcone's deli which is near where I live now. I used to live close to Lenny's before this. Hoagie heaven in both locations.
