I was in Kansas City a week or so ago and ate at Planet Sub, which my friend told me was the same as the Yello Subs here in Lawrence. Why do they have different names if they are the same restaurant?
Donny Keen, co-manager of the Lawrence Yello Subs, said he wasn't entirely sure, but he thought the name change reflected company owner Bob Jones' pro-environment attitudes.
"I think he wanted to go with a more earthy-friendly name, something kind of pro-recycling," Keen said.
The company started opening locations outside of Lawrence in the late 1990s.
