Restaurant veterans open sub shop in Surfside Beach

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Surf Side Subs & Deli, a member of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, has opened at Benjamin's Bakery on Third Avenue South across from Legends in Concert.

Owners Joseph Garafano and Bernie Miles have more than 70 years of combined experience in the restaurant business.

The classic sub shop creates mile-high subs using the bakery's oven-fresh rolls and Dietz & Watson premium deli meats and cheeses. "Bread is key besides quality meats and cheeses," Miles said.

Sub favorites include the authentic Italian sub, Giuseppe's meatball sub, steak and cheese, club sub and Italian classic veggie. They also offer breakfast sandwiches and salads as well as party platters. Delivery is free in the Surfside Beach area.

Benjamin's Bakery, a wholesale bakery, sells more than 10,000 rolls, bagels, bread loaves and pretzels weekly to area restaurants, delicatessens, grocery stores, Coastal Carolina University and other food establishments. The made-from-scratch bread products are fermented overnight and are baked in the early morning hours.

Currently, the bakery is developing its retail offerings.
