40 Under 40: Michael Adams, Franchise Owner & Field Consultant, Port of Subs

Michael Adams

Michael Adams loves Las Vegas. And he combines this love with his passion for food—in a big way.

Adams started as a sandwich master at Port of Subs 10 years ago, progressing into management, then being recruited to work with the corporate team as a field consultant and serving as president of the Las Vegas co-op, which manages the marketing strategy for all 34 Port of Subs stores in the Southern Nevada region.

During the pandemic shutdowns in 2020, Adams had the opportunity to become a franchise owner. He took a leap of faith—setting record-breaking sales—and is now opening his third store.

Through it all, Adams never forgets his community. He is working with Hope for Prisoners so that he can institute a hiring program for participants, giving someone a second chance as they reenter the workforce.
