Mr. Hero is a restaurant chain selling submarine sandwiches in Northeastern Ohio. It began in 1965 when its founder Robert Coulson purchased a Cleveland restaurant and has been expanding ever since. In the beginning years of the business, Mr. Hero stores were "family-run". In the 1980s and early 1990s, the company operated several locations under the name "Mr. Philly". Robert Coulson retired as the president of the company.
Via its franchising arm, Restaurant Developers Corporation, it has a presence as far away as Toledo and continues to grow. Outlets have begun selling other foods beside sandwiches like pasta, salads, and soup.
At 860.8 calories and 61.7 grams of fat, Mr. Hero's most famous sandwich, the RomanBurger, is a garden base setup consisting of lettuce, tomato, and onion with Mr. Hero's original oil and spices added to it. The Roman is then layered with two beef patties, Swiss-American cheese, grilled Italian lunch meats, and mayonnaise.
