McAlister’s Deli will open its doors in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, at 4401 Jonestown Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17109 at 10 a.m. on Monday, December 13. And to celebrate the grand opening, the location will be giving away 30-Day Free Tea Passes to the first 100 customers on opening day. The Free Tea Pass entitles the guest to one free tea per day, for 30 consecutive days. Known for its genuine hospitality, McAlister’s Deli is home to handcrafted sandwiches, always-fresh salads, giant stuffed spuds, and McAlister’s Deli Famous Sweet Tea.  

“We are so excited to open our first McAlister’s Deli and bring this restaurant to the Harrisburg community,” says new franchisee and co-owner Rathna Sivasailam. “We knew this would be the perfect addition in town and we’re ready to share our table and McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea with Harrisburg.”

Guests can dine-in at this location, utilize delivery, catering, or the convenient pickup window—where guests drive thru to retrieve their meal that was placed via web or app. In addition to this soft opening celebration, there will be an official grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony and giveaways in early 2022.
