If you are tired of the same old juniors from WaWa then try Primos. For about the same price you can get twice the hoagie for twice the taste. Not only is Primos selection a lot larger, but also a lot better.

Although Primos is not open 24 hours a day, Primos does offer a wide and great selection until about 6:00 p.m. everyday.

According to co-owner Marty Backover, there are three things that separate Primos from all of the others. Primos only uses the finest in quality ingredients, they have a unique selection to choose from, and finally the way they build each sandwich can be very tedious. “The way we do everything is important.” Backover said. Backover and co-owner Sal Fogarino decided to leave their jobs as systems managers after about 21 years and open their own Primos Hoagies, after experiencing the unique taste for themselves. Backover and Fogarino met after working as systems managers for Urban Outfitters which is located in Philadelphia.

Primos of Wayne opened on May 1st of 1999, and is conveniently located at 362 West Lancaster Avenue. You can also look for other Primos locations at 30 West State Street in Media, 20 th Chestnut Street in Philadelphia and finally in Brigantine which will open sometime this January. To experience the taste of Primos call Primos in Wayne at 610-687-0770 or the Primos in Media at 610-891-1919.
