Penn Station East Coast Subs Opens New Location in Mason, Ohio

Cincinnati, Ohio September 3, 2008 – Penn Station East Coast Subs will open its newest Ohio restaurant mid September at 4200 Aero Drive in Mason. Franchisee Howard Shokler claims, “He has always had a great deal of confidence in the Penn Station franchise.” In only 14 years Shokler’s business has grown to four stores in the Cincinnati area.

This newest Penn Station restaurant features the latest décor package with a newly designed front counter and grill facing the customer. Besides speeding upservice times, this new design allows customers to see their sandwiches being freshly grilled-to-order. “The look of our new restaurant is more up-scale and has a family friendly feel,” says Shokler. In addition to the traditional menu of subs, Penn Station now also features items like the sensational Hot grilled Wraps, a Catering menu, Sub Salads, Fresh Baked Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and this month the introduction of Cold Subs.

“Penn Station’s customer base is fiercely loyal and we are glad to be opening a new location,” says Craig Dunaway, President of Penn Station, Inc. “It’s our high quality freshness and grilled-to-order taste that keeps our customers coming back.” Shokler confirms, “I still eat at Penn Station almost every day, and I doubt I will ever get tired of our great sandwiches.”

Penn Station is renowned for its legendary Philadelphia Cheesesteak Sub sandwich served hot on freshly baked French bread, fresh hand-cut french fries and fresh-squeezed lemonade made throughout the day.

In addition to its signature Philadelphia Cheesesteak Sub, Penn Station also
offers other hot grilled to-order-sandwiches and wraps such as Chicken Cordon Bleu; Chicken Teriyaki; Chicken Parmesan; Pizza; Italian; Club; Reuben; Vegetarian, and the unique fresh-grilled Artichoke Sub. The menu also features the Chicken and Tuna Salad Sub, ten Sub Salads and Kid’s Meals.
