Subway -
Moab’s “Heart-Healthy” Sandwich Shop

Subway Sandwich Shop first arrived in Moab in 1987 at 74 South Main Street. The business was owned and operated by John Hartley until 1996 when it was purchased by Ivan Walker, Inc. from Pleasant Grove, Utah. In 1998, Subway moved to 299 South Main Street where it now resides, sharing the location with Walkers’ Phillip 66 Gas Station and Convenience Store. Artist Tarmina painted a lively mural of Moab bikers inside the store in 1998.
