Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop announced plans for expansion in the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

The 89-unit chain is known for The Bobbie, which was voted “The Greatest Sandwich in America” by thousands of AOL readers and is made with hand-pulled turkey, cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing, and a touch of mayo on a roll.

The company will bring a total of 12 units to Montgomery County, Maryland; Northern Virginia; and Washington, D.C. over the coming years.

Accomplished real estate industry professional and the new area director, George D. Vincent Jr. is a longtime fan of Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop. With an in-depth knowledge of commercial real estate and a passion for developing new and unique business opportunities, he brings a strong understanding of what it takes to make a company thrive in a competitive market. Through his efforts, Capriotti’s will introduce D.C.-area residents to its 37-year tradition of roasting whole, all-natural turkey and premium roast beef in-house daily for its handmade sandwiches.

Vincent will utilize a local firm, MILLER WALKER Retail Real Estate, to secure 12 prime restaurant locations throughout D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

“My wife and I have frequently traveled over an hour to get our hands on Capriotti’s famous subs, so we are thrilled to bring the brand’s outstanding flavor to our hometown for everyone to try,” Vincent says. “The greater D.C. area has yet to be introduced to a sandwich company with such high-quality subs and genuine customer service at an affordable price point.”  

Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s, says, “Capriotti’s has seen unprecedented growth in the past year, as we continue to expand into new territories such as this. This deal is an important milestone for the brand as we prepare to enter this rapidly growing market for the first time.”
