Own a Bold Sandwich Franchise
with Schlotzsky’s®

IWhen we started, we served just one sandwich—the Original®—in a small shop in Austin, Texas. In the 50 years since then, we’ve grown all over, added new offerings, and expanded our reach, but we’ll never stop making the satisfying, piled-high sandwiches with fresh muffaletta breads that made us famous. Now, you can bring Schlotzsky’s® unique brand and legendary sandwiches to your market.
