The Great Outdoors has been serving sub sandwiches for 50 years in McKinney and throughout North Texas, Vice President Gail Voelcker said.

The restaurant originally opened in downtown Dallas, Voelcker said, adding that there are now seven locations, including the McKinney shop.

To celebrate, the restaurant will offer several special offers at all locations on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23.

“We just want to thank the people who got us here considering there is a sandwich shop on every corner,” Voelcker said. “The fact that we are still here after 50 years is pretty remarkable.”

The Great Outdoors offers customized, made to order sub sandwiches, soups, salads and ice cream.
