The newest franchise for Sweet Peppers Deli is located in the Northwood Village on Highway 15 North in Laurel, Mississippi. The evening of June 16th, an invitation-only opening party was held at Sweet Peppers Deli to benefit the Hamasa Shriner’s Transportation Fund. All proceeds from this event were donated to the Shriners, helping them transport local children and families to the Shriner’s Hospital for care. “The response we have received from the community during our construction process has been incredible! We are thrilled to give back to this local charity and help them as they continue to battle the cost of rising fuel while trying to transport these children for the help they so desperately need,” states Brittany West, one of the franchise owners of Sweet Peppers Deli.

The staff and management of the Laurel Peppers have received extensive training at two Sweet Peppers Delis in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and at the busy location in Starkville, Mississippi. “This training will help prepare these new staff members’ and managers’ effectiveness from day one,” states Cory Fremont, corporate trainer, Sweet Peppers Deli Franchise Systems Inc.

The Sweet Peppers Deli concept originated in 1997 in Columbus, Mississippi. There are currently twelve Sweet Peppers Deli restaurants that are located in Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. Before the end of 2008 locations are scheduled to open in Gulf Shores, Alabama; Fort Mills, South Carolina; and Gulf Port, Missippi.

Sweet Peppers Deli offers a menu of salads, soups, signature sandwiches, panini (Italian pressed sandwiches), wraps, and desserts in an atmosphere including neon signs, glass garage doors, 50” plasma screen TVs, free WiFi, and outdoor patio seating.
