4Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop

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 of creating something unique. The shop began as a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They decided to name it after their grandfather, Philip Capriotti, who loved to cook.

They wanted to create a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This concept set them apart from their competition and still does. People loved their sandwiches, and word spread about their fresh roasted turkey, quality meats and cheese, fresh rolls and produce. It was a regular occurrence to hear people saying “Capriotti’s makes the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten!”

Over time, their popularity grew and 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 so successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located around the country and continue the tradition started in Delaware over 30 years ago. See More:




  1. Hard to take this seriously when one of the shops is in Truckee and most are franchise. I would think more locally owned shops would be on the list, for example, Rubicon Deli (awesome) and Cheese Board (also awesome).

  2. Tom I couldn’t agree more. So many other great local sandwich shops, like Paisans or Newman’s…

  3. How about some local places? Pretty much anything on the menu at Yosh’s Deli, barley crusted chicken breast at Silver Peak, Granite Street Eatery to. Are a few.

  4. Yeah, local only places please! So many great places!! Waldens and Butchers Kitchen have fabulous sandwiches. And those are only two out of a plethora of great places that are local and NOT franchises. Stuff only Reno gets to hog.

  5. Well above LaGrange CA. There is a little store that makes sandwiches and they are to die For! You can get any number of meats and Vegi’s put on them. We would make a special drive up there once every couple of months from the Central Valley area, well worth the Drive! I do apologize for not remembering g the name.
