Introduction: The History of 522 Pizza and Subs
The history of 522 pizza and subs began in 1945 when one man, Matthew ‘Matt’ie’ Costello, opened up a small grocery store in the heart of Foggy Bottom. Matt Costello was determined to provide his customers with the best bread he could buy, which was made fresh daily by a local bakery. Matt also made every effort to provide his customers with the best pizza he could make in that pizzeria, which was no easy task. Matt knew that if he were to provide his customers with the best pizza, he had to use the best ingredients. He found that the best ingredients were none other than milk and cheese, which he was also able to buy from his local grocer. By combining milk and cheese with his favorite Italian spices, he was able to make pizza that was truly delicious, which quickly gained him a reputation in the area.
But there was one thing that Matt Costello knew his customers loved more than great pizza, and that was great subs. Matt believed he could satisfy both the pizza and sub craving of his customers by offering them both at a reasonable price on his menu. His customers loved the idea and both the pizza and subs became incredibly popular.
Menu Items at 522 Pizza and Subs
In the early days of 522 pizza and subs, Matt made each pizza to order, and was famous for offering pies with a variety of toppings from pepperoni to pineapple. After a few years in the business, Matt expanded his menu by adding sandwiches, salads, and other Italian foods that satisfied customers looking for something different than the typical deli and sub shop. Though on his own he tried to offer everything his customers wanted, there were still some items that were never offered by 522. One of the most requested items was one for which he never made an exception: the standard chicken and bacon sub. This particular sub was ordered by many customers because of its simple, but delicious taste. Matt knew that to stay on top as a business owner he had to keep his customers happy, and so he continued to offer this special sub just as some other companies offer the same basic menu item.
Five years passed, and the popularity of this sub continued to rise. When Matt looked at his typical days, he was surprised by how busy his store was. One day he decided it wasn’t enough to only serve the bread-less sandwich or face the possibility that people would turn away from 522. He decided that he should start to offer an extra helping of food during lunchtime. To his surprise, this decision had made the business even busier, and many more customers became loyal supporters of 522 pizza and subs.
Now, this fifth anniversary for 522 has come and gone, and Matt can see that the popularity of his store hasn’t waned because of this food deal. In fact, it has been skyrocketed by it. The important thing for him to remember as he looks back at these five years is that everything he does to increase the quality of prepared foods makes a difference in the success of his business. If 522 continues on its growing path, there is no telling what could happen in a decade or two for Matt and his family.
