Cincinnati Bengals Star John Miller to Bring Famous Ike’s Love & Sandwiches to East Coast

NFL guard teams up with his father to open the concept’s first East Coast locations as part of an exclusive multi-unit franchise deal

Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, the iconic San Francisco-based sandwich chain with a cult-like following, solidified a multi-unit franchise deal with NFL star John Miller, guard for the Cincinnati Bengals, and his father Johnnie Green to bring the concept to the East Coast for the first time. The father-son duo is expected to open 10 storefronts throughout Broward County and Miami-Dade County, Florida, over the next seven years. The first location will open doors in Miami by next spring. 

“My father and I immediately fell in love with Ike’s Love & Sandwiches when we visited its San Francisco location, and saw a golden opportunity to bring it to our home state of Florida,” said John Miller, professional football star and Ike’s Love & Sandwiches franchisee.  “Ike’s Love & Sandwiches is different than any other restaurant concept in Florida right now. We’re excited to bring it to the East Coast as we know demanding customers are craving the sandwich selections and will jump all over it once we open the doors.”

Fueled by the power of Fransmart, the franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Qdoba Mexican Grill, Ike’s Love & Sandwiches will continue to expand nationwide. The brand is currently seeking experienced franchisees to continue bringing the concept to the top 40 media markets throughout North America.
