>>> Dayton-based sub chain poised to expand (January 2014)
>>> Submarine House looking to add 2 new locations (January 2016)
McDaniel worked at the original Submarine House on Brown Street when he attended the University of Dayton and told this news outlet that he always wanted to own and operate his own pub. He worked for Sherwin-Williams for 17 years before deciding this year to pursue his passion. He spoke to Danner and other Submarine House officials, “did my due diligence,” and decided to take the plunge, McDaniel said.
Founded in 1973 with that UD-area sub shop, Submarine House opened its first bar-and-grill concept in 2006, and now operates 8 locations, four of them bar-and-grills. Seven of the restaurants are in the Dayton area, and one bar-and-grill is in Hilliard in suburban Columbus.
