Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop officially opened at the Newport Place retail center in Orange County, California.

It is the first restaurant to arrive in the newly developed center, and will soon welcome neighboring shops.

Orange County sandwich lovers are already familiar with the award-winning sub shop’s dedication to great taste and homemade ingredients, as Capriotti’s opened its first Orange County restaurant in Tustin last October.

Fans that come by the new shop on Friday, March 15, can enter to win free subs for a year.  

Capriotti’s famous Thanksgiving-inspired sub, The Bobbie, was voted “Greatest Sandwich in America” by thousands of AOL readers and is crafted with hand-pulled, fresh-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing, and touch of mayo on a freshly baked roll.

Capriotti’s has recently received accolades, including one of USA Today’s “10 Great Places to Bite Into a Surprising Sandwich” and “Best of” awards in multiple markets, including Dallas, San Diego, Eastern Shores, Las Vegas, and its home state of Delaware.

The sandwich shop aims to impress Orange County residents with signature subs such as the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and cole slaw; and hot Cheesesteak, with premium grilled steak and melted white American cheese.

For a light alternative, fans can indulge in an assortment of hand-tossed salads, including the Chopped Italian Salad and The Black & Bleu, or one of Capriotti’s many veggie options, like the Veggie Cheesesteak.

Capriotti’s will also offer residents and businesses in the area a wide variety of catering options, including party trays, boxed lunches, or a hot Homemade Meatball Bar that can be conveniently delivered to local establishments.

“Southern California loves our fresh, made-to-order subs so much that it has become one of our fastest-growing markets,” says Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s. “Newport Place is an amazing new center, and we are honored that Capriotti’s is the first to arrive. We look forward to bringing more of our big flavors to Orange County residents.”
