UF grads: Do you remember a sub shop that delivered to the dorms in the early '60s?

Hey Chowhounds! I was wondering if anyone attended the University of Florida or lived in Gainesville back in the early '60s. My mom was trying to remember a sub shop that delivered to the dorms back in those days. She said she didn't have a car so she rarely left campus, but a particular shop would deliver to Broward Hall, and getting the occasional Italian sub from them was always a huge treat (and probably where I got my Italian sub love from).

She is pretty sure it was named after a common first name, but it wasn't Joe's Deli -- that was founded in 1975, it was a favorite of mine when I was there in the late '90s, and it closed in 2007.

Any ideas for other places I could research this for her?
