U.S.-based Jon Smith Subs announces Australian expansion

The fast casual brand is known for their sirloin steak and chicken breast subs.

United Franchise Group (UFG) has announced that their Jon Smith Subs brand is making their Australian debut.

"It's a natural fit for the brand to expand to Australia as UFG has a large presence with our corporate office located in Sydney. Like many of our other brands, Jon Smith Subs will be expanding into most of Australia's major markets including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart and Darwin, among others," chief executive officer Ray Titus said.

The U.S.-based fast casual franchise started in 1988 with its first sub shop in Florida. Since then, it has expanded to South and Central Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Nevada, Texas, and California.

The announced total investment to open a location in Australia will reportedly range from $350,000 to $500,000. Aside from expanding to Australia, Jon Smith Subs has also placed Master License Partner agreements in place for United Kingdom, Portugal, South Africa, and Colombia. The brand says they are strategically targeting more international locations.

"The Jon Smith Subs franchise opportunity has a track record for success that's attractive to entrepreneurs. Our brand is known for delicious subs, made each day from high-quality ingredients, cooked fresh on the grill, and served with award-winning French fries," Jon Smith Subs president Scott Stuck said.
