Over 25 years, founder Larry Raikes and his brother Mitch have built Larry’s Giant Subs from a tiny, carryout shop to a chain of franchises with 88 locations throughout the Southern states. Using select ingredients—USDA choice roast beef, award-winning bread from Constanzo’s Bakery and cheesecake from the Carnegie Deli—the Raikes brothers bring the flavor of the New York sandwich shop to the South.
