In 1999, Nathan’s Famous purchased the chain for $14.4 million, bringing the Miami Subs Grill and Arthur Treacher’s brands under a common corporate umbrella. The chain had approximately 175 outlets at acquisition. However, the chain struggled, due in part to instability in the management ranks, and in 2007, Nathan’s Famous announced the sale of Miami Subs to a private investment group, Miami Subs Capital Partner 1 Inc, for $3.3 million.
Miami Grill, formerly Miami Subs Grill, is a privately held restaurant chain, based in the US state of Florida. The chain has approximately 30 locations, the majority of which are in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County Florida. The company’s menu consists of such items as wings, submarine sandwiches, and pizza along with items from Arthur Treacher’s and Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, all of which operate co-branding agreements with Miami Subs, and which were corporate siblings of Miami Subs from 1999–2007.
