About Capriotti's Sandwich Shop Inc.

In 1976, Lois and Alan Margolet opened a sandwich shop in Wilmington, Delaware, naming it after their grandfather, Philip Capriotti. To differentiate their store from the competition, they roasted whole fresh turkeys overnight to use in their signature sandwich recipes. In 1991, they began offering franchises to family members, and later to others outside their family. In 2008, they sold the company to an investment group led by Ashley Morris, who had been a Las Vegas area Capriotti's franchisee since 2004.
