Good Things Subs & More opened up in Unicoi last week during the COVID-19 lockdown.
According to Good Things Subs & More owner Coleen Sweeney, business has been good despite the coronavirus restrictions.
“We have been doing very well; I can’t complain,” Sweeney said. “We have a lot of great people here that have enjoyed our food and are spreading the word around.”
Good Things Subs & More features freshly made subs, both hot and cold, and salads at a reasonable price.
“We get a lot of orders for our cheesesteaks,” Sweeney said. “We have a hamburger sub that is gaining popularity, and everything, including our long list of salads, are made fresh daily in house.”
According to Sweeney, the regular size sub is 8 inches long and the large is 12 inches long. The subs range in price from $7-8 for a regular sub and around $10 for a large. The salads hover around the $3-4 range.
Sweeney, who comes to Unicoi by way of Delaware, is excited to meet the citizens of Unicoi County.
“My husband and I enjoyed this area and we saw this building was for sale so we thought this was a great place for a new adventure,” Sweeney said. “My husband operates a small engine repair business (My Small Engine Guy) in the back of the building so it has worked out very well.”
According to Sweeney, it’s important to take care of her customers.
“We pride ourselves on providing quality meals,” Sweeney said. “We appreciate all our customers, especially our first responders and senior citizens. Our first responders get a 15 percent discount, our seniors and our military receive a 10 percent discount.”
Sweeney is welcoming feedback from her customers.
“We want to hear if there are items that the customers want to see on the menu or if there are any changes they would like to see,” Sweeney said.
Good Things Subs & More is located at 4025 Unicoi Drive in Unicoi and is open seven days a week.
“We are open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m, and on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.,” Sweeney said.
