Not long ago, I read an article by Adam Horvath who writes for Jersey Bites. He was writing about three popular food brands that originated at the Jersey Shore, specifically in Point Pleasant.

The companies are now nationally known, and you can probably guess, he was writing about Jersey Mike's Subs, Bubbakoo's Burritos, and Surf Taco Coastal Cuisine.

They are multimillion-dollar companies that only hope to continue to grow in the future. So, I started thinking, "what's the next big food chain to come out of the Jersey Shore?"

I immediately think about Hoagitos in Belmar! I really enjoy highlighting this Jersey Shore eatery, and guess what? They are opening a new location! Details and pictures below...

Hoagitos has been a Belmar staple for a handful of years. Random story, many years ago, I remember working at the Asbury Park Boardwalk studio as an intern with 94.3 The Point. Right across from our boardwalk studio was a new sandwich place called "Hoagitos". I wasn't making money as an intern so I was pretty much-losing money because I would eat multiple pork-roll sandwiches from Hoagitos every morning. I couldn't resist!

Anyway, I am happy to be getting the word out about their brand-new location in Monmouth County. The new spot is at the Towne Center Plaza in Oakhurst. Located at 2005 Route 35 Unit 6. This is their second Jersey Shore location. One day, I can see Hoagitos having hundreds of locations throughout the country, just like Jersey Mike's.

The menu is unique and the food is always so fresh. From the Hoagitos website:

Hoagitos is the latest restaurant to develop out of the flourishing trend of mixing fast food convenience with high quality fare. Priding ourselves on our home roasted meats and fresh ingredients, Hoagitos strives to provide a deliciously new and fresh alternative to Belmar & Oakhurst residents, beachgoers and visitors, serving cooked to order "Hoagitos", or mini-subs, sliders and sides with speed and care. We are committed to bringing Belmar & Oakhurst a high quality semi-gourmet meal option that maintains the speed and easy eating factor expected from casual fare at a price that keeps the wallet happy.
