Franchise History

Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop opened in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1976. Brother and sister duo, Alan and Lois Margolet, began with the simple goal to create a unique sandwich shop for “real turkey lovers” using real home-made ingredients. Honoring their Italian heritage, they named their sandwich shop after their grandfather, Philip Capriotti, who loved to cook traditional Italian food. So it began, the tradition of roasting whole turkeys in house every night to serve the next day in a variety of popular sandwich recipes—including their signature best-seller, “The Bobbie”.

In 2005, best friends Jason Smylie and Ashley Morris convinced Lois to let them open a location of Capriotti’s because they too had fallen in love with the food! This was the first of what would become three locations for these former college roommates. In 2008 they decided to purchase the company from Lois and her family. Since that time, Capriotti’s has worked to develop a top-notch industry structure to become a national franchise brand. Over 100 franchise partners have joined and embraced the passion for great food and love of people while enjoying rewarding businesses. Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop has the perfect recipe to help you become a successful franchise sandwich shop partner too.
