Sandwich enthusiasts in the United States enjoy a wide variety of options when it comes to sub sandwich selections. Jersey Mike's Sub has more than 2,000 locations and makes submarine sandwiches to order, chopping the meats and cheeses to order as needed.

There is also a cherry pepper relish that is exclusive to the restaurant.
