-- LAS VEGAS, NV (June 13, 2011) - With great excitement, Capriotti's Sandwich Shop is thrilled to announce its 35th anniversary today, June 13th. Exactly 35 years ago, Lois Margolet opened the doors to the first Capriotti’s on Union Street in Wilmington, DE., serving the freshest, in-house roasted turkey to become the favorite sandwich of “real turkey lovers.” 35 years later, over 70 Capriotti’s locations in 11 states are roasting turkeys nightly and serving favorites such as the award-winning Bobbie®.
Capriotti’s premiere sandwich is the Bobbie®, also known as “Thanksgiving on a roll,” made with homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo. Other specialty offerings include the Capastrami® piled high with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, cole slaw and Russian dressing and the Cheese Steak served Delaware style with fresh white American cheese. Only the freshest ingredients are used to ensure the most delicious flavor possible for every sandwich made.
“Over the past few years, the growth Capriotti’s has experienced has been incredible thanks to all of the fans,” says Ashley Morris, Capriotti’s CEO. “We are so appreciative to the people that love our sandwiches and have spread the word. The entire Capriotti’s team is excited to see what the next 35 years bring.”
