PITTSBURGH — Philadelphia’s popular sandwich chain PrimoHoagies has signed agreements to open 21 new franchise locations throughout the Northeast after the company closed out what CEO Nicholas Papanier Jr. called its “best year ever” — despite 2020 being engulfed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

PrimoHoagies, founded in South Philadelphia in 1992, currently operates 81 locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and South Carolina. The forthcoming franchises will push the company past the century mark for a total of 102 stores.
