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 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 make a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This concept set them besides their competitors but still does. People loved their sandwiches, and word spread with regards to 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!”
As time passes, 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 successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located around the country and continue the tradition began in Delaware over 3 decades ago.
