- They'll be making sandwiches soon.
To all the Chicagoans who find themselves in Kansas City, Tuesday, June 4, is your Independence Day. That's when Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens its first area location, at 4725 Broadway. And it's all the toasted subs, salads and milkshakes you can eat. Those who want a sneak peek, can attend an "Oven Warming Party,
" on Monday, June 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. You can purchase a $5 ticket for a sandwich, chips and a drink at the door. All of the proceeds from the soft opening benefit the Kansas City Art Institute's scholarship fund.
Earlier this year, Potbelly received approval from the Overland Park City Council to build a location at 6751 College Boulevard. The Chicago-based chain has more than 260 sub shops in 17 States. The hours are expected to be from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
