Potbelly Sandwich Shop
Potbelly Sandwich Works was founded in 1977 by Peter Hastings. The original store is located at 2264 North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, in a retail space that was previously an antique store called Hindsight, also owned by Hastings. Many of the items that decorated the restaurant were taken from the former antique store. In 1996, Bryant Keil purchased the original location and opened a second in 1997. He then expanded Potbelly to over 275 stores all over the country.
Potbelly toasty warm sandwiches are made the same way since 1977. Our craveable salads are abundant and fresh with amazing ingredients. Every toasty warm sandwich on the Potbelly Sandwich Shop menu is made to order. Choose between multigrain wheat or regular bread. Choose Originals (our "regular" size since 1977) or Bigs (30% bigger). Either one can be ordered on "Thin Cut" bread (1/3 less bread). Our toppings: add Mayo, Mustard, Hot Peppers, Lettuce, Onion, Tomato, Pickle, Oil and Italian seasoning - or don't. It's up to you to make your sandwich the way you like it.
Be sure to leave room for a hand-dipped milkshake or a cookie baked fresh daily in the shop!
Fresh. Fast. Friendly.
