Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, known for its award-winning, hand-crafted sandwiches, was named the 2018 ‘Best Sandwich in Vegas’ by Nevada Public Radio’s Desert Companion magazine. The publication’s annual ‘Best Of’ series profiles readers’ top choices in Vegas restaurants, entertainment, shops, services and more.
“We are honored to receive the ‘Best Sandwich in Vegas’ award this year,” said CEO Ashley Morris. “Our Las Vegas fans are continuously loyal to Capriotti’s, and we’ve loved getting to know these, along with new fans, over the years. We are committed to continue providing our unique, premium sandwiches, while keeping up with the latest restaurant innovations in order to maintain our standing as the best in town.”
Founded in 1976, Capriotti’s is most famous for its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-shredding them each morning to feature in a variety of fan-favorite subs. This includes The Bobbie, the shop’s acclaimed ‘Thanksgiving leftover sandwich,’ the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, the Cole Turkey and the Cheesesteak.
Capriotti’s currently has 37 restaurants in the Las Vegas area, most recently opening at Cheyenne and 215 under the ownership of franchise partner Mike Solomon. The new location debuted a drive-through pick-up window, a first for Capriotti’s restaurants. This feature allows customers to place their orders online or on their mobile devices and have their orders ready at the window, all at the convenience of not leaving their vehicle.
The company is also reaching another milestone in its home market, with franchise partners Corey Melendrez and Thomas Gourley opening their tenth location next month. This will be the tenth Capriotti’s location opened in ten years for the entrepreneurial duo.
“Over the years, Capriotti’s has become a Las Vegas staple and a favorite of both tourists and locals, alike,” said David Bloom, Capriotti’s Chief Development Officer. “It’s been a pleasure to see not only the development in our home market, but also to see our out of town fans brining the beloved restaurant back to their home towns across the country.”
