James and Robert Peplowski started Peppo’s in 1976 as a submarine sandwich business that also featured their Vienna Beef products. It’s the secret signature topping of marinated and seasoned tomatoes, pickles, and onions that makes everything at Peppo’s taste uniquely wonderful. Guts is at the core of everything Peppo’s does and has kept Peppo’s in business for so long. Peppo’s is active in local communities, and puts people at the heart of its business. Peppo’s has been celebrated on WGN’s Chicago’s Best and the Mancow Show.
