Demon Discounts > Dining > Potbelly Sandwich Shop
Potbelly started in 1977 as a small antique store on Lincoln Avenue in
Chicago. To boost sales, the original owner began offering warm
sandwiches and homemade desserts to customers. Potbelly became a
well-known neighborhood sandwich shop with a loyal following of
regulars and frequent lines out the door. The second shop opened in
1997, with Potbelly continuing to grow into many more neighborhoods,
reaching 288 company-owned shops in 2013. Franchisees operate seven
shops domestically and twelve in the Middle East.
Potbelly's toasty warm sandwiches, craveable salads and hand-dipped
milkshakes are all made fresh-to-order, and their cookies are baked
fresh each day. They provide a superior customer experience, driven by
both their employees and the lively atmosphere of their shops, which
feature live music and vintage décor inspired by the neighborhood.
