Primo’s Hoagies owner Frank Pospieck said he thinks that the sandwiches at his shop might have won over so many others in the neighborhood thanks to good old-fashioned customer service.
“I care that you get what you want,” he said. “I care because you’re a paying customer. You deserve to get it right.”
With over 25 years of experience making sandwiches, Pospieck said that he’s proud to serve the community, and he’s excited that locals felt the hoagies at Primo’s were the best in the area.
“I live in Port Richmond and I work here in Fishtown, and I’ll never leave either one,” he said. “I love these neighborhoods, and I just want to say thank you so much. This is so greatly appreciated.”
Along with his own experience in the industry, Pospieck said that he’s backed by hardworking staff members, including his wife and son.
“I’m lucky, I’ve got good guys on my staff,” he said. “This is just a great neighborhood. I’m happy.”
When asked if he had a specialty sandwich or a favorite hoagie, Pospieck said he’s eaten so many of the sandwiches, he couldn’t possibly pick a favorite.
Maybe that task is best left to Primo’s customers.
