Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint: Home of the signature Soft Pretzel Roll

by June Portnoy

Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint has brought a unique taste of cheesesteaks to Penndel, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It all starts with the roll. Owner Jay Green takes a fresh long roll and uses his own secret ingredients to transform it into a freshly baked pretzel roll. It not only looks like a pretzel roll, it tastes like one too!

When you purchase this signature pretzel roll, 25 cents of the cost will be donated to help a local food bank buy fresh meats, fruits and vegetables.

“After terminating my agreement with the Steak and Hoagie Factory franchise and establishing this new business a little over two years ago, I wanted to produce a steak sandwich that was unique from what all the other steak sandwich shops sell,” explains Jay. “In order to accomplish this, I took three of what I consider Philly’s best foods, including the soft pretzel, a cheese steak and cream cheese, and I put them together in one sandwich.”
