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 shop began as being a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They decided to name it after their grandfather, Capriottis Menu, who loved to cook.
They wanted to produce a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This concept set them besides their competitors and 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 definitely makes 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®” as well as others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located across the country and continue the tradition started in Delaware over 30 years ago.
