In 1989 – inside a glowing Madison, Wisconsin oven – the bread was born. The recipe was catalogued. The vegetables, meats, and cheeses were locally sourced and carefully crafted. The signature menu was created. The result: the freshest sandwiches in Madison.
We’ve baked the same fresh bread in our ovens every four hours, every day since opening our first shop – then called Big Mike’s Super Subs – on West Johnson Street over 30 years ago.
Soon after our delicious sandwiches hit the Madison streets, word got around quickly.
In 2004, we began franchising and changed our name to Milio’s Sandwiches. Today, more than 200 employees work at 21 franchise and company locations across Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa.
All those communities, including Sauk City, are super important to us. So in 2021, we started the Local Matters program. For every sale of our new Milio’s Cuban Special sandwich, we donate $1.50 to local causes. It’s not a short-term promotion; it’s our everyday promise.
“Our bread might be our claim to fame – but our real mission is to serve and support the local communities that we’re lucky to call home.” – Partner Brian Bergen
