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 of creating something unique. The shop began as being a boarded up building beneath their apartment. They decided to name it after their grandfather, Capriottis Near Me, who loved to cook.
They wanted to create a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so that they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This idea set them apart from their competitors yet 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 had been a regular occurrence to know people saying “Capriotti’s 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®” and others, were introduced. The formula was successful that franchising was offered. Today, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shops located around the country and continue the tradition began in Delaware over 30 years ago.
