This popular American-style sandwich bread is big, soft and shaped (a bit) like a submarine. Perfect for a wide variety of fillings, both hot and cold, sub rolls are an ideal solution for the schools, universities, pub chains, functions, buffets and any operators looking for delicious, alternative bread carriers.

Our Big Softy® sub rolls are fully baked, so you simply thaw and serve. We make them in the classic 8-inch and footlong moulds, in a variety of flavours and toppings. We hand slice our subs, so you don’t have to, and bake them in specially designed moulds for an authentic look and feel that makes them great to eat.

Sub rolls offer a great profit opportunity, as the trend for sub-style sandwiches continues to grow, with an ever-expanding younger market looking for alternatives to sliced bread and crusty baguettes. Whatever your sandwich fillings, there’s a Big Softy® sub roll to complement them perfectly.
