What is the Origin of the Name 'Grinder' for a Sub Sandwich?

The classic sub sandwich, with its Italian bread and generous toppings, is known for being a bit more difficult to chew than the average ham and cheese on white bread. This difficulty in chewing has led to the sandwich being referred to as a 'grinder', as it requires a bit of grinding with the teeth to get through a bite.
