What is it that makes your business successful?

"I think it's the whole design," said John Lester, owner of Grand Junction Grilled Subs. "The people working behind the grill as a team to create our food. I mean the food is probably the number one reason. But we have a base of loyal customers that keep us in business."


What's something you wish more people would try?

The loyal customers really pick their favorites too. "I have noticed that Grand Junction people find their favorites and stick to them," said Lester, "they'll come in once a week and order the same thing for a year. Our menu is so extensive that people need to just explore it."


What's your favorite option on the menu?

"Mine is probably the Chicken Cordon Bleu, which is the number one seller, but the Chicken Junction is also really good too," said Lester.
