It's always exciting when a new food joint opens in the Tri-Cities. In addition to the New MOD Pizza location opening up near the Columbia Center Mall, it's been confirmed that there will be a Jersey Mike's Subs in between Starbucks and the future pizza shop. The actual address of the strip mall is 1659 North Columbia Center Boulevard.

It was just last month that we heard the news of Jersey Mike's opening a Richland location. That sub-shop is scheduled to open this fall in Vintner Square, at 2729 Queensgate Drive.

Here in the Tri-Cities, we have a super variety of sub-shops and restaurants. For the record, we have:

Firehouse Subs
Subway
Blimpie
Bruchi's
Jimmy John's
Brother's Cheesesteaks

I know I may have left out some of the others. Feel free to let me know where you enjoy a good hoagie every now and then on our app below.

I've had the opportunity in my career to live all over the country and experience all different sub-shops. My all-time favorite is Cousins. No relation to the restaurant on Road 68 on Pasco. The Cousins I'm referring to is headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. I discovered them while residing in Madison. Cousins has locations in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. In my opinion, Cousins serves the best meatball sub, ever.

Until Tri-Cities gets a Cousins location, I'll be visiting all the other sub-shops, including Jersey Mike's. Thank goodness we don't have a sub-shop shortage.
