They wanted to create a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so that they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This concept set them apart from their competitors but still does. People loved their sandwiches, and word spread with regards to their fresh roasted turkey, quality meats and cheese, fresh rolls and create. It was a normal occurrence to know people saying “Capriotti’s makes the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten!”

Signature sandwiches, such as the “Bobbie®” as well as others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located around the country and continue the tradition began in Delaware over thirty years ago.
