Primo Hoagies, which has grown from a South Philly corner shop to a gazillion locations,  is looking at Old City.

Franchisees Pat McGovern and Dan Shoemaker, who own the Primo at 11th and Sansom Streets, went before neighbors last night to disclose plans for 304 Market St., now a souvenir shop whose lease is running out.

It's between the destination restaurant Fork and Suit Corner.

McGovern and Shoemaker plan to have 14 seats. "We think it's a perfect fit," said McGovern. "I hear from a lot of people that they can't get a really good hoagie in Old City. Campo's [a block away]  is fantastic, but in my opinion they're known for their cheesesteaks."

The project is up for a zoning hearing in early January and McGovern and Shoemaker hope to be open by March 1.

The location is across from a future CVS store at Third and Market.
