Clark Greene opened the Oswego Sub Shop in 1969. At that time, the sandwich shop had 10 sub recipes, and some family recipes, such as the home-cooked roast beef sandwich.
Clark passed the sandwich deli to his son Bill Green, who ran the operation for another 35 years before passing the sandwich shop down to his son, Bill Green, Jr. Junior is still the CEO of the company.
Bill Junior did a complete overhaul of the restaurant, both inside and out in 2002. Although the restaurant was as popular as ever, Junior was not quite satisfied and did a second overhaul in 2009. Today the restaurant is substantially larger and houses both a state of the art kitchen and a bakery.
The Oswego Sub Shop has a larger menu than before, including more than 65 varieties of subs, wraps, and sandwiches – as well as salads, soups, chicken wings, side dishes, and fresh-baked desserts.
Oswego Sub Shop maintains its corporate office in the same location where its been for the past 50 years, in Oswego, New York.
