Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, an acclaimed restaurant franchise that first opened its doors in 1976 in the Little Italysection of Wilmington, Delaware with the goal of serving great sandwiches and capturing the hearts of turkey lovers, is set to open its doors in Oklahoma City in Fall 2016. The space will be approximately 1800 square feet and will be the first Capriotti’s location in the state of Oklahoma.
The new restaurant will be co-owned by Joshua Moyer, Jeremiah Moyer, and Corey Little, with Little and Jeremiah Moyer handling day-to-day managing of the facility. Living in Las Vegas, Joshua Moyer fell in love with Capriotti’s and immediately recognized a great opportunity to become an owner himself. After speaking with his brother, Jerimiah Moyer, and their mutual friend Little about the prospect, the three of them decided that becoming a part of the Capriotti’s family would not only be a great business opportunity, but a prime opportunity to be involved with an extraordinary brand that they all genuinely love. The new Capriotti’s location is expected to bring between 25 and 30 new jobs to Oklahoma City.
With more than 100 locations across the United States, Capriotti’s is committed to creating mouthwatering, homemade subs and sandwiches made with the freshest ingredients for an unsurpassed taste. Capriotti’s continues its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole all-natural turkeys in-house and hand shredding them every morning to feature in a variety of their fan-favorite subs.
“We’re excited to bring the Capriotti’s experience to the Sooner State,” said Little. “With our top-quality, premium sandwiches, unique company culture, and my experience in franchising, we can’t wait to introduce Oklahoma residents to Capriotti’s and are confident that they will all become avid fans, just like we are.”
“Opening our first Capriotti’s location in the state of Oklahoma is a very exciting milestone for us,” said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s. “We are confident this team of experienced business owners will be incredibly successful in launching Capriotti’s in a brand new state and look forward to all of the exciting things to come.”
