Great American Hero is officially closing its doors in its home city

One year after the supposed retirement Dominick Oliverie, the Great American Hero is officially moving its business to another location according to a Dallas Observer article from July 28 which says, 

“The Great American Hero has been a Dallas institution for 47 years. At one time there were almost a dozen around Dallas, but they all closed except the one on Lemmon, which was the second to open.

The spot was popular for its fresh sandwiches made with produce purchased from local farmers markets with spreads such as hummus made in-house daily. Being health-conscious was important for founder Dominick Oliverie.

Late last year, Oliverie, 74, decided it was time to retire. He placed a large sign in front of his stand-alone pink and yellow sandwich shop that said it would be closing.”

Despite moving to another place, hopes for the Great American Hero are still huge as patrons of the restaurant and subsequent owners Danny Wilson and Jacob Coxx have huge plans according to a CultureMap Dallas article from July 25 which reports, 

“We always knew this location would be temporary since Dominic sold the land prior to us selling the business,” Wilson says. “The rent they were asking was a lot higher. I’ll be curious to see if a bagel shop can make it.”

He and Cox have dreams of turning GAH into a franchise.

“The trademark and the name are phenomenal,” Wilson says. “We’re undecided if we want to go with more corporate stores or straight into a franchise model.”

“It’s a Jersey-style sandwich shop but with better ingredients than the competition,” Wilson says. “We’re going to keep the same product, but are going to take the brand marketing of concept in a little different direction.”

Fortunately, a great food bagel place from New York called Shug’s Bagels is taking the place of the Great American Hero.
