Potbelly Sandwich shop coming to KC in 2013

  • Potbelly is coming for your belly.

The sandwich shops in Kansas City are starting to become as varied as the sandwich toppings they have available. Potbelly Sandwich Shop (which is looking for job applicants on Craigslist) will be expanding into the Kansas City area in 2013. [I’m waiting to hear back on where and when.]

The Chicago-based sandwich chain’s specialty is “A Wreck.” That sub has roast beef, salami, turkey, hickory-smoked ham and Swiss cheese. The menu is standard: sandwiches, salads, soups (a daily selection and chili), and cookies. One novelty is that they offer shakes, malts and smoothies. At first glance, it looks to me like a hybrid of Planet Sub and Mr. Goodcents.

Anybody had a chance to eat at Potbelly, and should I be excited that they’re bringing their sandwiches to Kansas City?
