"To the good folks at Hemet Submarina-

Thanks for your recognition of Memorial Day!  At 56, I'm a "boomer" and a member of the "Vietnam Generation".  My Dad was in the Army during World War II and was stationed at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.  I think the thought of all those gallant young men who died that terrible day bothered my Dad for the rest of his life.  He felt that the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, also, of course, unprovoked, were even a worse affront to our great nation.

Well, I love your sandwiches and am a regular anyway, so you can count on my continued patronage.  Just wanted you to know your salute to Memorial Day & what it stands for, is greatly appreciated."

"We never have and never will sacrifice quality for price."

Executive Vice President of Purchasing - SUBMARINA

It all began with a commitment to quality, freshness and flavor...

The first SUBMARINA was founded in 1977 by two United States Postal Service workers - Les Warfield and Ron Vickers.  The partners and their wives, Lynn and Maureen, made the decision to leave the seasonally gray days of their Reno, Nevada hometown for the warmer San Diego, California climate.

Feeling San Diego lacked an excellent sub sandwich the couples joined forces and opened the first SUBMARINA restaurant in Poway, California.  As Warfield said, "We had no experience, no capital and by every rule of business we should have failed.  We didn't know an avocado from prosciutto, but we were willing to learn."  The first official franchise shop opened in 1988.

Les Warfield and Ron Vickers are still the down-to-earth guys they've always been.  The founders and their wives have recently retired, although they remain very interested in their 30-year-old concept.  They are the first to marvel at how the idea they had so many years ago, has done so well.  "I would attribute our success to product quality, a comfortable atmosphere and excellent customer service," says Vickers.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds to help prevent getting sick and spreading illness to others.  If soap and water are not available use an alcohol-based product to clean your hands.

How to wash your hands.

1.  Use warm running water and soap.

2.  Lather up - scrub all hand surfaces(front, back, between your fingers, wrists and under nails) for 20 seconds.

3.  Rinse well.

4.  Dry with a clean towel.


When should you wash your hands?

1.  Before preparing or eating food.

2.  After going to the bathroom.

3.  After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has gone to the bathroom.

4.  Before and after tending to someone who is sick.

5.  After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

6.  After handling an animal or animal waste.

7.  After handling garbage.

8.  Before and after treating a cut or wound.


When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

1.  Apply product to the palm of one ahnd.

2.  Rub hands together.

3.  Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.
