Germantowns First Potbelly Sandwich Shop
Feb. 17, 2014 - Potbelly Sandwich Shop will opened its doors at 20940 Frederick Rd., Germantown, Thursday, Feb. 20. This will give area residents the chance to experience the lively, neighborhood hangout that makes Potbelly Sandwich Shop "The Best Place for Lunch."
Jordan Geers is the general manager who has worked in several other Potbelly shops. "I look forward to opening this location," Geers said. "This area is fantastic and has the best people. I’m excited to learn more about Germantown and to get involved in the neighborhood."
The shop will partner with the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation during its pre-opening event, the Oven Warming party, to help raise funds and awareness for the organization. "This is a great organization and I look forward to giving them a healthy donation," Geers said. "They support families with children who have been diagnosed with brain tumors, as well as help provide funding for research to help find a cure."
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 Germantown 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. "Potbelly is an experience, not just a meal," Geers said. "We provide guests with fantastic food, plus great customer service and atmosphere. Friendly faces, live music and happy staff members helping meet your every need—that’s why Potbelly is the perfect place to hang out and eat."
This is the first Potbelly Sandwich Shop to open in Germantown and the shop will staff approximately 20 employees and managers. The location will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
