Penn Station to open in Tiffin


TIFFIN – Penn Station East Coast Subs has announced the opening of a franchise of the national sandwich chain in Tiffin. The new restaurant will be located on 596 W. Market St., near Chipotle, with the opening goal of November 2019.
Inspired by Philadelphia cheesesteak on a visit to Philadelphia, Jeff Osterfeld opened the first Penn Station in Cincinnati in 1985. In 1988, Jeff’s vision for an upscale, fast-casual dining experience revolving around “fresh ingredients and display cooking” was formulated into a franchising concept. The company has grown successfully and currently has over 350 restaurants throughout 15 states. Penn Station was also named the best sandwich chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2015 Consumer Picks survey.
The franchise owners, Steve Pryor, Hank Barnard and Brian Bullerman, are excited to be opening a location in Tiffin.

“We are looking forward to coming to the Tiffin area market and providing a new quality dining option for the community,” said Barnard. “The intent is to hire approximately 30 full and part-time high-character employees, with future growth potential within the company.”
“We’re excited to see this space filled and to have yet another food choice for citizens in Tiffi,” said Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz. “I am pleased to welcome Penn Station to Tiffin and look forward to their opening.”
As Penn Station is committed to fresh ingredients and great service, meals are prepared in front of their customers offering sandwiches, wraps, salads, fresh-cut fries and more.
