Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, known for its award-winning, hand-crafted sandwiches, signed three franchise agreements to bring a total of 12 locations to the Salt Lake City area over the next three years. The first new location is expected to open in October in Daybreak.
Capriotti’s is most famous for its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-shredding them each morning to feature in a variety of fan-favorite subs. This includes The Bobbie, the shop’s acclaimed best-seller, made with homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo on a soft roll. There is currently one restaurant in the Salt Lake City area in West Valley City and a second Capriotti’s in St. George.
The new franchise agreements will bring a total of 12 new restaurants to the area with the following agreements:
Brothers and Salt Lake City natives Tyler and Wade Martin fell in love with Capriotti’s while on a trip to Las Vegas. They will be opening three locations over the next two years, the first of which will be located in South Jordan, UT
When Jordan Blackburn, owner of the St. George, UT, Capriotti’s, noticed Salt Lake City residents would always drive down to his location, he decided to open an additional three stores in the Utah Valley area to meet the high demand.
Kevin Cornett, a lifelong Capriotti’s fan, will open six locations in northern Salt Lake City, with plans to have two open by the end of 2017.
“We are hoping Capriotti’s will soon become a household name throughout Utah,” says David Bloom, Capriotti’s Chief Development Officer. “We know a lot of people from Salt Lake City look forward to stopping by Capriotti’s while on trips to Las Vegas, so we’re excited to be bringing nine new locations to this area.”
Capriotti’s has more than 100 fast-casual restaurant locations across the country. The company is currently working with developers across the country, including Nashville, Reno, Boise, and Norfolk, Virginia.
Capriotti’s will open 15 new shops in 2017 and will grow the brand to 500 locations by 2025 through franchising. Capriotti’s has franchise opportunities for single and multi-unit developers.
