Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop will open its first Virginia restaurant in Rosslyn on August 4. The new location will be the inaugural restaurant for the sandwich franchise in the state and marks the chain’s commitment to expanding its reach across the U.S. Franchisee George Vincent Jr. also introduced the Capriotti’s concept to Washington, D.C., last year to much fanfare and a special visit from Vice President Joe Biden.

Established in 1976 and with over 100 locations in 14 states and federal districts, Capriotti’s is dedicated to serving guests delicious, handmade subs crafted with fresh ingredients. For 38 years, the sandwich shop has distinguished itself from others by slow-roasting whole turkeys in-house and hand-pulling the meat off the bones. Some of the award-winning sandwiches include the sub shop’s signature creation, The Bobbie, made with in-house roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing, and a hint of mayo on a freshly baked roll and the SlawBeJoe, made with homemade roast beef, Provolone cheese, Russian dressing, and cole slaw. Capriotti’s also offers a variety of vegetarian sub options like the Veggie Cheese Steak, made with hot vegetarian chicken and melted Provolone cheese on a toasted roll.

“George has been an integral part of growing the Capriotti’s brand to new markets and audiences,” says Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s. “With the enormous success of his shop in Washington D.C., we have no doubt that his restaurant in Rosslyn will thrive and be an instant favorite of sandwich-lovers in the area.”
