Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, known for its award-winning, hand crafted cheese steaks, turkey subs and more, will debut a new location in the Starkey Ranch development in Odessa at 12267 SR 54 on Oct. 11. This location will mark the first of 15 total locations set to develop in the Tampa Bay area.
Developing the award-winning sandwich brand in an untapped market is what initially inspired the interest of new Capriotti’s multi-franchisee partners, Scott Crawford and Stephen Poletta. The franchisees were also drawn to the Capriotti’s franchise opportunity after learning about the exceptional support system and their mouth-watering menu options. More background on Crawford and Poletta can be found here.
Locals will soon be able to experience Capriotti’s 45-year tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural Butterball® turkeys in-house and hand-pulling them every morning, top-choice beef and other brand favorites.
One of the reasons why Caprotti’s continues to be a leader in the fast casual and sandwich category is because of its wide array of sandwiches including: The Bobbie, made with fresh oven-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo, the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and homemade coleslaw and the cheesesteak is made with premium steak, chicken or Impossible plant-based meat and melted cheese plus hot or sweet peppers. The Odessa Capriotti’s will offer a convenient order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services. The new shop will bring 30 new jobs to the Odessa community.
“The quality of Capriotti’s is something one would expect to have in their favorite home-cooked meal,” said Crawford. “No matter the sandwich preference, Odessa and the entire Tampa Bay area will soon be able to experience a level of quality and comfort that has never been available in the area until now.”
