Port of Subs is a franchise of submarine sandwich shops located exclusively in the western United States and headquartered in Reno, Nevada.[1]

It was founded in Sparks, Nevada, under the name "Sub Shop" in 1972. John Larsen purchased the company in 1975[1] and renamed it Port of Subs after holding a community-wide contest for its new name. Between 1975 and 1985, ten more shops were established before Port of Subs became a franchise.[2] The shop currently has more than 140 locations throughout the western United States. It can be found in Nevada, California, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.[3]

The company is a listed sponsor of the Arizona Soccer Association[4]
