While attending school Michael was working for a local equipment dealer in Charlotte before and after school selling equipment and doing some small kitchen design work for local projects.
After 18 months Michael came home and started helping out with some local projects and trying to find his niche . It wasn’t until Michael got a job with the local utility company as a territory sales representative selling gas commodities and general customer care. There ,Michael was exposed to many new concepts that hit the bay area. After getting 3 more years of experience under his belt and a few hundred projects , Michael decided to leave the corporate world and head back to the kitchen to develop his new concept Mickey`s Subs!!
We want our customers to be able to get a consistent product in a timely manner without sacrificing customer service or the quality of the product. We want our customers know that our brand is all about the ingredients and how they play a part in making our sub the best!!
Why are we doing this?
Our goal is to make the best deli sub in the bay area. Our motto is “ where ingredients matter” and we live by our motto!! Our concept bridges the gap between that local vibe and a national brand. We have partnered with Boars Head to provide us with the highest quality meat and cheese available as well as working with a locally owned Faedo’s Bakery to create the most delicious sandwich in the bay area. Our goal is simple… we want to make this best sub sandwich we can!!!
Awesome subs! I was craving a turkey sandwich and wanted to try this new spot … so glad I did! Bread was soft and fresh, and all the meat, cheese and veggies were delicious. I especially appreciated the many veggie options and the house-made sauce … it was some kind of magical mix of mayo, mustard and seasonings that they recommended and I’ll definitely get it again.
Try Mickey’s if you’re in the area and looking for an alternative to Cuban food.
