Nothing, it's just what they call them in certain parts of the country...

There are some companies in Philly that ship out of town. I used such a service to send steaks cross country several years back. The sandwiches are usually flash frozen for shipment. It's won't be cheap ($$$). Look up 'A Taste of Philly' or 'Campo's Deli'.

Subs and hoagies are generally the same. They call them hoagies in Philly. Other names are hero, torpedo, wedge or grinder. Some areas consider a grinder to be a heated hoagie/sub. They may be similar but the Italian hoagies from Philadelphia are the best. Ask for oil and vinegar and oregano. Some people substitute mayo but there's always that odd 10% out there!

No difference! It just depends on the region you live and what a sub/hoagie is called.

Checkout for Tony Luke's cheese steak sandwich. They are from Philly I think. We have one in Houston. They are very good if not better than Pat's or Geno's.

I'm not sure about the shipping... but the difference between a sub & a hoagie is this (I think) a hoagie has lettuce, tomato, & onion. Sub just has the meat...like cheese steak sub is just a plain ol cheese steak, steak & cheese.
