Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens the first of 10 local outlets today, bringing Mediterranean chicken, the PB&J, a pizza variant, the turkey, ham and bacon Clubby, and a skinny mushroom melt to Henderson. The restaurant at the Shoppes on the Parkway development sits near St. Rose Parkway and Amigo Street. The first 100 people to visit Potbelly Henderson will receive a free sandwich. After the first 100 visitors, all customers will receive a free cookie with their purchase for the first week.
Franchiser Gregg Kocenko already has Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Qdoba Mexican Eats locations, and plans to open Dragon Tiger Noodle Co. with chef Jet Tila. Dragon Tiger is also scheduled for Spring Valley’s Rainbow Commons retail center and Southern Highlands, as well as the same strip mall as Potbelly.
Nevada was one of the few states the Potbelly Sandwich Shop had yet to conquer, but fans of its hot submarine sandwich menu will have plenty of locations to visit.
Created in Chicago in 1977 and now expanded to more than 450 locations. Traditionally, each shop places an antique, potbelly stove among its decor.
