The White House Sub Shop of Atlantic City opened in 1946 during World War II.
Founded by Anthony "Tony" Basile, along with his Aunt Basilia and Uncle Alfred "Fritz" Sacco. Prior to this, the front of the Arctic Avenue building was Mr. Basile's tailor shop.
After the war, they closed the tailor shop and “opened the front of the building as a cold ‘submarine’ sandwich shop.”
A very cool fun fact: The fountain and grill hood found today in the front was from the original store.
From The Beatles to Frank Sinatra, The White House Sub Shop has been an iconic establishment that makes a truly great sub.
