Answers to Your Sandwich Franchise Questions

Deciding to open your very own Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop franchise is exciting—but it also leads to many questions. We want to ensure our prospective franchisees have everything they need to succeed—including answers to any lingering questions or concerns. Our team is always here to help you, and our unrivaled training will make sure you are fully prepared to hit the ground running.

  • Do I need to have restaurant experience?
    Our processes and systems have been developed for people who have never done anything like this before. At each step through the development process and beyond, you will be guided and supported by experts dedicated to your success.
  • How much money can I make?
    There are many variables that affect the answer to this question and we are completely transparent. The Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), Item 19, will provide you with detailed information on profitability. As you do your due diligence, we encourage you to speak with our sandwich shop franchise partners.  Please check out our How Much Can I Make page for more details.
  • How much does it cost to own a Capriotti’s shop?
    The average total investment ranges from $422,000 to $818,000. When you review the 2024 Franchise Disclosure Document, Item 7 will break down the total investment.
  • Will Capriotti’s provide financing for my store?
    Industry-leading third-party financing is available through our strategic relationships with a variety of financial institutions.
  • What demographics does Capriotti’s look for?
    Our customers are regular people who relish and love food. They use fast-casual restaurants for both lunches during the work day and dinners for the family, as well as catering gatherings. They are middle-class working adults who enjoy the accessibility of delicious sandwiches and salads made with fresh ingredients prepared in-house.
  • Will Capriotti’s help me find a location?
    Our best-in-class site selection process, on the ground support, and analytical tools will provide you with everything necessary to select your Capriotti’s location. Our team has real-world industry knowledge that will guide you from start to finish.
  • Can I open a single Capriotti’s?
    We are looking for great franchise partners who align with our values, are passionate about the brand, and love great food. While you can open a single restaurant, as new owners go through the process, many find that a development rights agreement for multiple restaurants allows them to plan for future growth strategically by securing more than one market area.
  • How many employees do I need to run a Capriotti’s location?
    A typical Capriotti’s operates with a staff of 12-15 employees.
  • What are the typical hours of operation?
    Most locations operate from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., but hours vary across the system depending on the market and trade area.
  • Where did Capriotti’s begin?
    In 1976, what would become one of the nation’s favorite sandwich shops was born as a family business brought to life by brother and sister Alan and Lois Margolet. Named after their food-loving grandfather, Philip Capriotti, the first Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop was opened in Wilmington, Delaware.
