First 100 in Line Get FREE “Bobbie” Sub; First 50 Get Free “Bobbie” for a Year

Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, founded in Wilmington, DE and long a favorite of Delaware beach-goers, expands its presence on the East Coast as it opens its second DC-area and first Northern Virginia location at 11 AM on Monday, August 25 at 1500 Wilson Blvd. in Rosslyn. The first 100 in line at 11 AM receive a free “Bobbie” sandwich, with the first 50 of those also receiving certificates for “Bobbies” for a year. In addition, the Nats “Presidents” will be on hand to rally the crowd and pose for photos.

Known for roasting whole turkeys daily and making sandwiches to order, Capriotti’s is being brought to the DC market by local businessman George Vincent, Jr. The 33 year-old Landon School and University of Maryland graduate plans to open a dozen Capriotti’s location in the region over the next two years.

Hot & cold sub sandwiches in three sizes, sandwiches made to order, a selection of salads and four vegetarian subs, plus a kid’s menu make up the offerings at Capriotti’s. The best seller, the Bobbie, is known as Vice President Joe Biden’s favorite sandwich because that’s what he ordered when he was the first customer at Capriotti’s 18th & M Streets, NW location in DC. That classic sub, known as “Thanksgiving on a roll” is made with in-house roasted turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce and a touch of mayo.
