The sandwich market is changing and evolving. One of the companies pushing this change is Jersey Mike’s Subs.

The Manasquan, N.J.-based sandwich chain is quietly one of the fastest-growing restaurant concepts in the country. In this week’s edition of Restaurant Business’ podcast, “A Deeper Dive,” RB Executive Editor Jonathan Maze speaks with Hoyt Jones, president of the 1,400-unit chain.

Jones speaks about the impact of delivery, takeout, growing labor challenges and a difficult real estate business, as well as the overall market for sandwiches and the restaurant business in general.

In addition, Maze and Peter Romeo, RB editor-at-large, debate whether Dunkin’ Donuts should remove the “Donuts” from its name. The coffee chain is expanding a test of calling itself simply “Dunkin’.”
