Origins Of The "Grinder"

Okay all I am looking for the origin of a sandwhich called a grinder. I worked in a restraunt and made these all the time and fell in love. I heard they came from the south, but no one I know in the south ever heard of them.


Can you help this reader?

I was raised in Western PA. We refered to "Grinders" as hot sub sandwiches such as a meat ball sub or cheesesteak. No one in the South ( Florida or TX ) knows this term.

fROM THE ABOVE LINK i GOT THE BELOW INFO O'SURE

An area chain called Mancino's has been making grinders in Michigan since 1949. Around here, the terms submarine, hoagie, hobo, and grinder are interchangeable. This appears on Mancino's menu

"The term 'Grinder' can be traced back to the East Coast, where, during WWII Italian immigrants setup sandwich shops close to the shipyards. Their freshly baked Italian rolls were filled with generous amounts of meats and cheeses and were then baked and garnished with lettuce and tomato. These super-sized sandwiches were a favorite of the hard working men who ground rivets off the warships. The friendly shop owners referred to the men as grinders and the ever popular sandwiches also came to be known as Grinders."

I grew up in Maine, and we called them Italian sandwiches. I'd never heard the term sub sandwich until I moved here to the metro Atlanta area. Whatever you call them, they're good!

Here in Louisiana we call our sandwiches poboys! They're made with the same ingredients that french bread is made with but the loaf is longer and thinner. During the depression, working men didn't have much money so they started selling poboys for 5 cents a piece, thus the name poboy. The shrimp and roast beef are to die for!
