Brand history

The story of Dibella’s Old Fashioned Submarines starts back in 1918, in the city of Rochester. It was first founded as a family-run Italian delicatessen and import store. Over time, their cooked items became more and more appreciated by the clients at the expense of their grocery items.

The company’s operations consisted of only one sub store located in the Rochester suburb of Henrietta until 1998. They opened a second location in the nearby suburb of Greece the same year.
