As Delaware natives, Houston franchisee, Bryan Burnett and his wife, JoAnn grew up eating Capriotti’s and share a longtime love of the shop’s award-winning sandwiches. Burnett and his wife have 30 years of ownership experience in the retail industry in Houston. Burnett was drawn to the company’s unparalleled subs and consistent quality of service. Capriotti’s newest development will introduce Houstonians to award-winning favorites like The Bobbie®, made with whole roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing and a touch of mayo on a freshly baked roll and The Capastrami®, piled high with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing.
“From a young age, I have been a huge fan of Capriotti’s.” said Burnett. “They are by far the best sandwiches I have ever had and continue to offer the same great service, I remember as a child. I am truly honored to bring some of the amazing taste of my childhood to residents of my new hometown.”
“Capriotti’s has experienced much success in the state of Texas and we are excited to continue the trend into the Houston market,” said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s. “Bryan has been a longtime fan of the brand and will certainly bring the dedication and superior quality that Capriotti’s is famous for.”
