In 1976 in Wilmington, Delaware, Lois Margolet and her brother Alan opened Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (named after their beloved grandfather)…and a legend was born! They roasted whole fresh turkeys overnight and served made-to-order sandwiches on fresh-baked rolls piled high with hand-pulled turkey, the best quality meats, cheeses, and produce. When Capriotti’s opened an outpost in Las Vegas, it became a destination…and some customers even had sandwiches shipped to them across the United States! Today Capriotti’s sandwich, The Bobbie®, made with in-house, slow-roasted, Thanksgiving-quality turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce and a touch of mayo on a freshly baked roll is “The Greatest Sandwich in America,” as voted by thousands of AOL readers.
What makes a winner? Authenticity, dedication, and good taste! Recent winner of “Best of” awards in Dallas, San Diego, Las Vegas and Delaware, Capriotti’s can please anyone with hot subs, cold sandwiches, kids meals, salads, and vegetarian options. In addition to the award-winning The Bobbie®, another fan favorite is The Capastrami®, made with hot pastrami and Swiss cheese with Russian dressing and crisp cole slaw.
Now the legend has come to us! The owners of our local Capriotti’s, Bryan Burnett and his wife JoAnn, grew up eating Capriotti’s and share a longtime love of the shop’s award-winning sandwiches. Bryan says, “From a young age, I have been a huge fan of Capriotti’s.They are the best sandwiches I have ever had and Capriotti’s continues to offer the same great service that I remember as a child. I am truly honored to bring the amazing taste of my childhood to our friends and neighbors here in the Houston area!”
Good taste runs in the Burnett family. Bryan and JoAnn’s daughter, Jennifer, will be heading up the Sugar Land location. She says, “My sister is working as a party-planner in Manhattan, and she’d want me to tell you that we offer plenty of catering options including a meatball bar, party trays, and box lunches. We have curbside service when you’re in a hurry, but we promise that if you have to park…we’re worth the walk!”
Grabbing a quick sandwich doesn’t mean settling for less than the best. A Capriotti’s sandwich has a taste of home in every bite!
