The Carving Board Sandwiches, a fast-casual restaurant that provides comfort food sandwiches of the highest quality, is gearing up for nationwide expansion with the recent announcement of its franchise opportunity. Following initial success in California and a signed franchise agreement in Dubai, the brand looks to continue momentum by partnering with local entrepreneurs in metropolitan cities across the U.S.

Best known for putting classic comfort food meals in between bread in sandwich form, The Carving Board creates a niche in the $21 billion sandwich and sub store industry. With more than 50 unique sandwich creations on its menu—including the famous Spaghetti and Meatballwich—the majority of items are created in-house using only the freshest ingredients. The masterminds behind the sandwich creations, brothers and co-founders, David, and Yoav Adir decided to grow the brand through franchising in late 2016 after expanding to four corporate locations.

“There is no concept in the industry like us, providing us the opportunity to grow quickly in markets across the globe,” says David Adir, co-founder and CEO. “Since our founding in 2012, we have built the infrastructure to grow through the franchise model and we’re confident we’ll flourish in metropolitan cities. We’re seeking franchisees that appreciate the originality of our concept and are passionate about the restaurant industry in order to elevate our brand to new heights.”

Anticipating 10 locations opening in 2017, The Carving Board has hit the ground running with its first franchise location slated to open in Dubai this spring and an additional three corporate locations projected to open in California later this year. Additional cities for target expansion include Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

“We created a concept that isn’t your typical sandwich shop—we are constantly innovating, creating a sandwich of the week, appealing to consumers seeking an elevated dining experience,” says David Adir. “We are thrilled to see our brand gain national attention for our ability to recreate the everyday meal in sandwich form.”

Receiving high praise from USA Today, The Food Network, and Eater among others, The Carving Board is known for some of the most unique, mouthwatering sandwich creations. Popular menu items include The Bentley—a take on a traditional steak dinner featuring a quarter pound of seasoned filet mignon served on ciabatta bread, covered with bacon mayonnaise, blue cheese, grilled onion, and fresh spinach. Another fan-favorite is the Spaghetti and Meatballwich—a classic twist on spaghetti and meatballs featuring house-made meatballs sliced and topped with a garlic basil marinara and a thick slice of melted mozzarella served between Parmesan spaghetti that is coiled up and holds the shape of a bun.

Headquartered in Tarzana, California, The Carving Board is the bold answer to the classic sandwich joint. Ushering in a fresh era of industrial décor, today’s music, and hand selected ingredients, the brand is setting the new sandwich standard. Guests are sure to feel a sense of comfort while being offered a better dining experience with attention to detail in its food, décor, and service.
