‘A family business that takes pride in its food, service and reputation’: New Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop opens in Frisco

‘A family business that takes pride in its food, service and reputation’: New Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop opens in Frisco_60f1ba3839e28.jpeg

Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop has opened its newest location in Frisco, offering not only its classic subs but also becoming the first of the shops to offer beer and wine. 

The new shop for the family business will also offer an order-ahead option in addition to third-party delivery services, and the alcohol will also be available for curbside pick-up and to-go orders, Capriotti’s said in a June 14 release

“Although Capriotti’s is new to Frisco, it’s amazing how many people are familiar with Capriotti’s already,” Frisco Capriotti franchise owner Jeff Johnston said. “Many people that have relocated to Dallas grew up loving Capriotti’s. Before we even opened, so many people told us how excited they are that we are in Frisco and could not wait for us to open after seeing our ‘coming soon’ signs.” 

The idea to open the shop, Johnston said, came from his family falling “in love” with Capriotti’s while traveling. Frisco is their hometown, so he said he thought it was the perfect fit. 

“Although this is a franchise, we plan to run this as a family business that takes pride in its food, service and reputation,” Johnston said. 

Johnston said he’s looking forward to being the first Capriotti’s location to serve beer and wine. 

“You can have them plain or loaded with our famous recipes of cheesesteak or capastrami. A sandwich doesn’t just have to come with chips,” Johnston said. 

In a release from Capriotti’s, the chain said the Frisco shop is family-owned and operated by Valerie and Jeff Johnston, who are both in the medical field and plan to open up two more locations in the next year. There are now more than 125 locations across the county. 

Capriotti’s was started by Lois Margolet and her brother, Alan, in 1976, after they lived in Little Italy in Wilmington, Delaware, where there were many area sandwich shops, Capriotti’s said in a description on its website

The siblings named the shop after their grandfather Philip Capriotti, who loved to cook, and started the shop in a boarded-up building under their apartment, the sandwich shop describes on its website
