The Tubby’s Sub Shop legacy began in 1968 when Richard Paganes, at the young age of 21, founded the first Tubby’s Sub Shop in the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores, precisely located at 13 Mile and Harper. Richard’s sandwiches quickly gained popularity, thanks to their unique flavor, high-quality ingredients, and generous portions, making Tubby’s Subs a beloved choice among Detroit locals. Richard Paganes’ pioneering vision and unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional products and top-notch customer service laid the foundation for Tubby’s enduring success.

The year 1978 marked a significant milestone for Tubby’s as the company granted its first franchise store at 14 Mile and Ryan in Sterling Heights. Following this success, Tubby’s expanded its presence with a series of dine-in locations and achieved another milestone by introducing its first drive-through restaurant in Westland during the early 1980s. Tubby’s growth strategy has been characterized by a deliberate pace, emphasizing quality over quantity. Richard Paganes’ commitment to excellence continues to resonate as the cornerstone of Tubby’s success, ensuring that each Tubby’s Sub Shop maintains the same level of quality and customer satisfaction that has defined the brand since its inception.
