Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop to Debut in Minneapolis with Three-Unit Franchise Agreement

Fast-Casual Sandwich Chain to Open First Location in Edina This Year

LAS VEGAS - May 09, 2017 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, known for its award-winning, hand-crafted sandwiches, has signed a franchise agreement that will bring three locations to the greater Minneapolis area over the next three years, with the first restaurant set to open later this year in Edina at 7143 France Ave, in the 71 France building near Southdale Center.

The Minneapolis locations will be owned and operated by local entrepreneur Jeff Kegel, who has worked in the food industry for the past 12 years and comes from a long family restaurant business background. Kegel heard buzz about the Capriotti’s product for years and said once he tasted the food, he immediately wanted to bring the fast-casual concept to Minneapolis.

“Capriotti’s is a completely unique offering for this area. The fresh, quality, craveable sandwiches make the menu stand out and my business partners and I believe Capriotti’s will thrive in the Minneapolis area,” said Kegel, whose company will operate under the name Three Bubs Subs LLC. “I’ve always wanted to open a business in the restaurant industry and Capriotti’s business model is a good fit.”

Capriotti’s, has more than 100 fast-casual sandwich restaurant locations across the country, with a strong presence on the East Coast and West Coast.

“We look forward to bringing Capriotti’s to another major market in the Midwest,” said David Bloom, Chief Development Officer. “The Minneapolis area is experiencing growth in the restaurant space and we’re confident that Jeff’s foodservice experience will pave the way for Capriotti’s in the region.”

Capriotti’s will open 15 new shops in 2017 and aims to grow the brand to 500 locations by 2025 through franchising. For more information, visit
