At the early age of 14 the founder Abdul –Raheem Thomas knew that he wanted to create a sandwich that was so good people would say that’s the best sandwich I ever had. Abdul put his dream to the side while working for various other companies in the food service industry. One day Abdul decided to pursue the dream he had 20 years earlier to open a hoagie and steak deli and that’s exactly what he did.
With the blessing of his family Abdul took a leap of faith and opened Mt. Airy Deli at 7AM on August 8th, 1995 right in the heart of Mt. Airy (on the corner of 7200 Devon Street). Since that morning Mt. Airy Deli has been making the best hoagies and steaks in Mt. Airy. And if you don’t believe it you should give it a try.
