Potbelly Sandwich Toronto

U.S. sub chain Potbelly Sandwich opening in Toronto

Potbelly Sandwich Shop is coming to Toronto. The Chicago-based chain already boasts more than 400 locations in the United States, but the incoming eatery at 83 Yonge St. will be the company's first foray into Canada.

Potbelly started as an antique store in Chicago in 1977. It got a new owner in the mid-1990s and has been expanding ever since. It has retained a quirky and eclectic aesthetic and showcases local artifacts at each outpost in a nod to its early days.

Signature offerings include toasted sandwiches like the A Wreck, a sub stacked with a smorgasbord of cold cuts, including hand-sliced salami, roast beef, turkey, ham and swiss cheese.

Aside from sandwiches, expect salads, soups, house-baked cookies, milkshakes and malts on the menu. And, as a recent liquor licence application suggests, there might even be some boozy beverages to look forward to as well.

Opening dates have yet to be announced.
