Back in October, I told you about a beloved local Jersey Shore eatery that was planning to sell the business.

This caught many by surprise and it was definitely a bummer.

We live at the Shore and we take our subs (yes, subs - not hoagies) seriously.

Shore sub shops are the best because almost all of them will stack a sandwich so massive that you can barely fit it in your mouth.

Often, one sub is enough for a family of four.

For the past 17 years, U.S. Subs on Ocean Road in Pt. Pleasant has been satisfying cravings and serving generations.

Owner Stephanie “Petey” Cucci is about as Pt. Pleasant as it gets.

She was born in Point Pleasant Beach, graduated from Point Pleasant Beach High School in 1999, and studied at Ocean County College.

She has two children.

Petey had the chance to take over ownership of the former U.S. Subs and jumped at the opportunity.

She and her staff didn't skip a beat. Happy customers (and full) customers continued to make U.S. Subs their "spot."

The 5-star reviews tell the story.

Diana G. said:

The BEST and biggest pork roll egg and cheese sandwich I've ever had. Their subs are huge too!! Great place, great food!!

On Petey's U.S. Subs Facebook page, Stephanie wrote that she and her family have talked it over and decided to put Petey's up for sale.

IMPORTANT: Petey's U.S. Subs is not closing any time soon. They are open for business and their subs are better than ever. 

There was a bit of a panic, understandably when the news broke.

While sign language is another one of  Petey's passions and she is actively getting her certificate to teach, she will continue to operate the sub shop.

The shop will still be open Monday - Saturday from 7 am-2:30 pm.

They still offer free delivery to Pt. Pleasant, Point Pleasant Beach, and Bay Head.

The homemade soups, salads, and bangin' breakfast sandwiches will be served up.

A big thank you to "Petey" for keeping U.S. Subs going and putting her mark on the business.

I wish her nothing but the best in her future adventures.
