PrimoHoagies to open store in Rockaway
Westville’s sub-sandwich chain PrimoHoagies will open a store in Rockaway, its second store in North Jersey, on October 19.
The franchise location is owned by locals Felix Galinsky and Anthony Phalange, who also own another location.
Galinsky and Phalange opened their first PrimoHoagies location in Mahwah last year, and despite the ongoing pandemic “have found great success in this new venture thanks in large part to the hard work and dedication of their team,” said the company in a press release.
âAs an Italian-American, I can say that our menu is above the rest, both in terms of quality and offerings,â said Phalange. âWe look forward to continuing to strengthen our presence in northern New Jersey. “
The 2,200 square foot store will create 15 jobs and provide take-out, delivery, catering and limited indoor seating.
The first PrimoHoagies location opened in South Philadelphia in 1992 and, since relocating its headquarters to Westville, has expanded to several states, including Colorado, Florida, and Pennsylvania, in accordance with announced agreements more early this year.
The first 100 customers online at 10 a.m. on opening day will receive free hoagies, with special-priced hoagies available throughout the day.
The restaurant, located at 395 Mt. Hope Ave., will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
