In 1965, Mr. Hero opened on Cleveland's west side. It has since expanded across northeast Ohio as well as into Toledo, Columbus and Akron. The restaurant continues to offer speciality submarine sandwiches. The company is committed to using proprietary recipes to differentiate itself from other fast food restaurants. Famous for its Romanburger, the restaurant also offers subs, pasta and a Hot Buttered Cheesesteak sandwich, among other menu items.
