Lois Margolet and her brother, Alan, started Capriotti’s in 1976. They lived in Little Italy in Wilmington, Delaware, where sandwich shops were abundant, but Lois had a dream about creating something unique. The store began as being a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They made a decision to name it after their grandfather, Capriottis Menu, who loved to cook.
They wanted to create a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” therefore they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This idea set them besides 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 had been an ordinary occurrence to hear people saying “Capriotti’s helps make the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten!”
With time, their popularity grew as well as in 1987, their cousin, Diane Rizzo, joined them in opening additional locations in Delaware. Signature sandwiches, such as the “Bobbie®” and others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located round the country and continue the tradition started in Delaware over 3 decades ago.
