Lenny & John's Subs was established in 1971 by two good friends, Leonard Antinozzi, Sr., and John Maselli, when the price for a whole sub was only $1.  Although the prices may have changed over the succeeding 40 years, the business has remained true to its original motto, “Keep everything fresh and keep everything clean”.

Lenny & John's Subs also remains true to its original 1971 basic menu; the tuna sub (#18) is still an L&J favorite, and its original recipe remaining a secret today.  Over the years, the business has expanded to offer extensive catering, and it has established itself


as a valued fixture and contributor to the economic vitality of the Bloomfield Avenue business district.

Lenny & John's Subs is currently operated by Leonard Antinozzi, Jr., and Robert Antinozzi, the sons of the business' founder, who hosted a 40th Anniversary Party at the shop, located at 161 Bloomfield Avenue, on Saturday, June 25, 2011.
