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 a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They decided to name it after their grandfather, Capriottis, who loved to cook.
They wanted to produce a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This idea set them besides their competitors yet still does. People loved their sandwiches, and word spread regarding their fresh roasted turkey, quality meats and cheese, fresh rolls and provide. It absolutely was a regular occurrence to know 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®” as well as others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located around the country and continue the tradition started in Delaware over 3 decades ago.
