Get ready to belly up to a yummy sandwich when a new Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens at the Macy's store located at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove early next year.
The restaurant chain, known across the country for serving up sandwiches and soups, says it will open four restaurants in Macy's stores, but Lake Grove, is the only Long Island location.
“This franchise agreement marks a major milestone in our multi-unit franchise growth,” said Peter Ortiz, vice president of Franchise Development at Potbelly. “A development deal with one of the nation’s premier retailers is a testament to our focus and prioritization of our franchising initiative. We’re thrilled for what’s in store for the future with Macy’s.”
The chain's deal with Macy's also includes restaurants at three other stores including in Modesto, Concord and Santa Clarita, California, according to Potbelly Corp.
The deal with Macy’s comes on the heels of Potbelly nearly doubling its franchise footprint with recent multi-unit agreements totaling 42 units spanning Las Vegas, Nevada; Tampa, Florida; and the Carolinas.
Founded in 1977, Potbelly currently has 450 restaurants nationwide, with about 10 percent of which are franchises, the company said.
No word yet on an exact opening date, other than 2020.
