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 store began as being a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They made a decision to name it after their grandfather, Capriottis Sandwich Shop, 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 apart from their competition but still does. People loved their sandwiches, and word spread with regards to their fresh roasted turkey, quality meats and cheese, fresh rolls and create. It absolutely was an ordinary occurrence to learn people saying “Capriotti’s makes the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten!”
With time, their popularity grew and then in 1987, their cousin, Diane Rizzo, joined them in opening additional locations in Delaware. Signature sandwiches, including the “Bobbie®” and others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located round the country and continue the tradition were only available in Delaware over 3 decades ago.
