Capriotti's Sandwich Shop Franchise Overview
About Capriotti's Sandwich Shop
Founded in 1976, Capriotti's Sandwich Shop, is a sandwich shop that remains true to their 38 year tradition of slow-roasting whole, all natural turkeys in-house every day. Capriotti's fresh ingredients, homemade subs and unique menu items have won numerous accolades.
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.
