Celebrating 25 Years of Lennys History

What does it take for a sandwich shop franchise to stand the test of time? What are the ingredients for success in the realm of food service? We have the answer: consistent quality food made with the freshest ingredients and served with warm hospitality. This year, Lennys Grill & Subs proudly celebrates 25 years, growing from a small, neighborhood sub shop to a popular sandwich franchise. From the opening of our first store to a franchise across the country and growing, Lennys has become a competitive and forward-thinking sandwich franchise known for serving mouth-watering subs at friendly prices. 


In the Beginning

In 1998, in the small town of Bartlett just north of Memphis, the first Lennys Grill & Subs was opened for business. With the success and steady growth of this first location, the plan to become a franchise was soon underway. In 2001, the second location was opened and, just like that, Lennys became a household name. In the following years, more and more franchise locations would open and thrive. 


With such steady growth throughout the years, we attribute our success to keeping things simple, serving great food at great prices with outstanding service. We have fine-tuned our business model and supported our franchisees every step of the way to become the franchise we are today. 


Our Longstanding Commitment to Excellence

Lennys Grill & Subs continues to thrive because we have become a popular, trusted brand with substantial brand equity, low investment costs, and favorable potential earnings in the $21 billion-a-year sub sandwich industry. Delivered with fast service and a good dose of warm hospitality, the quality of our subs is what sets us apart. Not only do we purchase the finest ingredients, but we also don’t settle for anything less than the best. Piled high with fresh vegetables and high-quality sliced meats, our great-tasting subs are what keeps people coming back again and again. From our “World Class Philly Cheesesteaks” to our delectable Italian Subs made with real prosciutto and our Mile-High Turkey Subs, our subs are second to none because they are delicious and affordable.


Served With a Good Dose of Warm Southern Hospitality

In addition to our great food, Lennys has always put an extra emphasis on customer service. From greeting our guests with a warm smile as they enter our restaurant to ensuring their satisfaction throughout their dining experience, everyone who comes into our restaurants is treated like family.
