Sobik’s History

A Sub Sandwich Star is Born!


In 1969, the Submarine Sandwich was a relatively unknown concept in the South.  Nonetheless, with a desire to use only the finest sliced meats and cheeses and the FRESHEST of vegetables, John and Beverley Sobik wanted to open a restaurant in Central Florida which could take advantage of the Submarine’s popularity in the North.

Opening on State Road 436 in Altamonte Springs, lines began to form from the very start as word quickly spread about the Freshly Sliced Ham,  Turkey and Roast Beef Subs, as well as what has become Sobik’s signature offering; its famous Cheesesteak Sub.

With thinly sliced flakes of Seasoned Sirloin, Grilled Onions and Melted Cheese, all served on a warm, freshly-baked sub roll, Sobik’s Cheesesteak soared to the top of the menu, where it remains to this day!
