On Tuesday, Potbelly Sandwich Shop opened a new location in Cedar Park in The Parke shopping center. Well known for fresh, made-to-order sandwiches, salads and live, local music, Potbelly has earned a national reputation as one of the best places for lunch.
The popular neighborhood spot will offer the toasty, delicious sandwiches that Austin area residents have come to know and love, such as the signature A Wreck and the Grilled Chicken and Cheddar.
Customers can also enjoy hearty salads, a rotating selection of soups, freshly baked cookies and famous hand-dipped milkshakes. The Cedar Park shop will also feature the new Turkey Fresco sandwich made from all-natural, slow-roasted, hand pulled turkey, topped with roasted red peppers, fresh spinach and basil
The shop will be led by General Manager Christopher Holland, who joined the Potbelly team in 2016. The Cedar Park location will employ a staff of approximately 25, from sandwich makers to managers.
“Potbelly isn’t just another sandwich shop. We have live music, friendly people, and great food, and when you combine all that, it makes for a great atmosphere that people tend to gravitate to,” said Holland. “I’m excited to open the first Potbelly shop in Cedar Park – it’s a fast growing area and I know the community will welcome the Potbelly experience.”
To celebrate the launch of the new location, Holland invited the neighborhood to a pre-opening Oven Warming event on March 20.
For a $5 cash donation, guests enjoyed a sandwich, chips and a fountain beverage. 100 percent of proceeds benefited Texas Humane Heroes.
