Columbus' Newest Potbelly Sandwich Shop to Open January 28

January 22, 2014 // // CHICAGO - Potbelly Sandwich Shop will open its doors at 1171 Olentangy River Rd., Columbus, Tuesday, Jan. 28. This will give more area residents the chance to experience the lively, neighborhood hangout that makes Potbelly Sandwich Shop "The Best Place for Lunch."

Brandon Boehle is the general manager. He has worked in Cincinnati, as well as several Columbus-area shops. "I'm excited to learn a new part of Columbus and share the Potbelly experience with the neighborhood," Boehle said.

The shop will partner with the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) during its pre-opening event, the Oven Warming party, to help raise funds and awareness for the organization. "We are proud to partner with the center because it offers family-friendly learning experiences that do so much to inspire people, especially kids, to explore science, technology and more," Boehle said.

Known for its good vibes in addition to great sandwiches, live music has been a part of the Potbelly experience since the first shop opened in 1977. Neighborhood musicians put a little rhythm into lunch by performing live at Potbelly Sandwich Shops around the country. Musicians interested in performing at the new Columbus Potbelly should contact the shop manager.

Potbelly has built a passionate, loyal following of fans who spread the word about the fun, energetic atmosphere and great food. The unique Potbelly experience is defined by its combination of toasty warm sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes, tasty made-to-order salads, as well as friendly and lively people. "We always strive to make the Potbelly experience fresh, fast and friendly," Boehle said.

This is the newest Potbelly Sandwich Shop to open in Columbus and the shop will staff approximately 15 employees and managers. The location will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Delivery will be available beginning Feb. 25 from between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a $25 order minimum.
