Joe Biden fave Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop continues its D.C. expansion with a new location opening in Georgetown today. The first 100 people in line at 11 a.m. get a free Bobbie sandwich filled with roasted turkey stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mayo.
Delaware-based Capriotti’s was brought to the D.C. area by local franchise developer George Vincent Jr. The chain already has locations at 18th and M streets NW and in Rosslyn. Its newest home on the corner of 34th and M streets NW once belonged to Cellar Door music club where people like Miles Davis and Jimmy Buffet performed. More recently, though, it housed the Cheesesteak Factory.
This is just the beginning for Capriotti’s local expansion. Vincent plans to open a dozen more locations in the region over the next two years.
