Captain Bill’s Subs began in Phoenix, Arizona when Bill Whalley was working at The Submarine Factory. After a transformative encounter with a shoplifter and an elderly woman, Bill became “Captain” Bill and changed the name. Julie Reid, Captain Bill’s daughter, grew up at the sandwich shop, cleaning up, ordering inventory, and learning all the other aspects of the business. She moved on to become a school counselor and a mother to her son, Raymond. After moving to San Luis Obispo and discovering the Breaking Bread downtown location, Julie and Raymond decided to return to the sandwich world to carry on the legacy of Captain Bill. They are grateful and honored to share Captain Bill’s favorite recipes, unapologetic humor and sense of community with San Luis Obispo.
