The casual restaurant’s diverse menu features a wide variety of cold and hot hoagies, cheesesteaks, wraps, vegetarian options, sides, chips, drinks, cookies, desserts, and more.
“I’ve been a PrimoHoagies lover my whole life,” said Allen. “It was a childhood dream to open my own brick and mortar business, and I’m finally doing it! I can’t wait to bring a beloved Philly and South Jersey staple to the Moorestown community.”
A South Jersey native, Allen grew up in Marlton and has lived in Cherry Hill since 2015. For five years, he served in the Marine Corps in signals intelligence and upon his return, received his Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice from Rutgers University. Since his service, he’s worked for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and served as COO for a local tech company.
The 2,100-square-foot retail store, expected to employ 20 people, will offer takeout, delivery, and limited indoor seating. PrimoHoagies also offers catering, including their popular hoagie trays – perfect for special events, gameday, and luncheons.
This location will be open from 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. daily.
