DiBella’s Subs was founded in 1918 by Mike and Mary DiBella in Rochester, New York. The company originally started off as a delicatessen, but later discovered that sandwiches were their biggest selling item.
Today, DiBella’s Subs has 43 locations in 6 states. Wegman’s has incorporated DiBella’s Sub style shops inside their stores. While Wegmans consulted with DiBella’s, the company claims that the sandwiches are completely Wegman’s and not their product. DiBella’s locations have a 1930/1940 decorating theme. Bread is made fresh each day, using what is described as “old world technique” and all ingredients are cut or delivered fresh each day.
The company has been voted “Best Sub in Rochester” for 8 consecutive years by the City Newspaper and the Democrat & Chronicle newspaper.
