SHERWOOD PARK (May 11, 2023) – Popular Florida-based sandwich shop, Jon Smith Subs, is excited to announce the opening of its second Canadian location in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Known for its larger-than-life subs, jam-packed with melt-in-your-mouth flavour, Jon Smith Subs is bringing its reputation for serving the highest quality ingredients, alongside exceptional customer service, to Sherwood Park.

What sets Jon Smith Subs apart is their commitment to using only the highest quality fresh ingredients and providing exceptional customer service. Every sub is made to order fresh in front of the customer, along with their made-to-order fries. The menu features more than 24 subs, with some of the most popular dishes being the Steak Bomb, Cuban, Gator, and The Italian Cold Cut. They also serve fresh salads, wraps, bowls and offer breakfast daily until 11:00 a.m. and have a variety of fresh breakfast sandwiches on the menu.

The new location will be run by a group of partners including Altaf Maredia, a veteran in the quick service food industry with more than seven years of experience. Sherwood Park was a priority location for this second franchise because it’s one of the largest and fastest-growing communities in Alberta.

"We're thrilled to open the second Jon Smith Subs in Canada, and to be bringing its unique brand of larger-than-life subs to the community in Sherwood Park," said Maredia, one of the partners running the new location. "We take pride in our fresh ingredients and exceptional customer service, and we're excited to share that with the people of Sherwood Park."

This new location is part of a master franchise agreement with an Alberta company co-owned by Gurbinder Singh and Amrinder Cheema. Singh and Cheema both have family history in the restaurant industry and share a passion for delivering exceptional quality food and service to the community.

“We are thrilled to be continuing to expand Jon Smith Subs in Alberta and look forward to offering the community a fresh alternative in the sandwich category with our specialty subs,” says Singh. “Our approach to every aspect of the Jon Smith Subs experience is to not only provide our guests with delicious, fresh subs but also to create a warm and welcoming environment with a focus on excellent guest service. Our team is ready and excited to show Sherwood Park what Jon Smith Subs is all about.”

Guests can indulge in the popular annual all-you-can-eat chicken wing event for just $23.99 at its 75 locations across Canada, starting May 30 to July 2.

We stand behind our Clean as Cluck Poncho in its ability to provide the protection required to fully participate in Wingsanity,” said Royal Nasager, VP Marketing, St. Louis Bar & Grill. “It also doubles as a Devilishly Good rain slicker.” 

A limited number of Clean as Cluck Ponchos will be given away to lucky guests each day at all St. Louis restaurants nationally, while supplies last.

According to estimates by National Geographic Magazine and other sources, over 100 million plastic utensils are used in the U.S. each day and are among the most common items found polluting beaches and ocean life worldwide.
