A Chicago based sandwich shop, Potbelly Sandwich Shop is officially open in Wilmington.
They opened July 2.
The owner, Brent Brouse, says they offer delivery, takeout and outside seating for the time being to comply with current social distancing rules due to COVID-19.
They will also be offering an online promotion starting July 6, where the first 100 customers to order via the online app will receive one free sandwich for their next visit.
Brent is originally from North Carolina and his wife is from Chicago. Brent moved to Chicago years ago while he was working for PNC and then moved back to North Carolina after PNC bought RBC. He says he fell in love with Potbelly during his time in Chicago.
The Wilmington location will be the first of 13 new Potbelly Sandwich Shop locations to open across North and South Carolina.
Brouse says those other locations will open over the next seven years.
The Wilmington Potbelly Sandwich Shop is located at 2515 S. 17th Street.
