Fast-casual sub sandwich shop Capriotti's is coming to Minnesota

They've got 20-inch subs on the menu.

A fast-casual sandwich shop that first opened 40 years ago on the East Coast is coming to Minnesota.

Three Capriotti's locations will open in the Minneapolis area over the next three years as part of a new franchise agreement, a news release says. The first will open at Southdale mall in Edina sometime in 2017.

These are the first Capriotti's in Minnesota. Iowa has a handful, Wisconsin's got a couple and Illinois recently got on in Chicago, according to some Google searching. That's about it for our immediate neighbors.

So what's on the menu? "Hand crafted" subs, plus soups and salads.

Going by this Cedar Rapids location, a 9-inch sub will run you from $6-$8. Then there's a 12-inch options, and you can go all the way up to a 20-inch (which costs $13-plus generally).

BrandEating says the best-known sandwich is The Bobbie: featuring shredded turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mayo.

Salads seem to be $7-$8, and soups are $5 or $6 depending on cup or bowl.

The chain started in Delaware, with the first shop opening in 1976, according to its website history. People liked their fresh roasted turkeys and sandwiches, and about a decade later they started opening more locations.

Since then they've spread, and now have more than 100 stores across 18 states (mainly on the coasts). The brand has aggressive goals now – 500 shops by 2025.

The three Minneapolis-area locations will be helmed by local entrepreneur Jeff Kegel.
