An Austin-based franchise is putting two sets of buns under one roof. The new look for long-time sandwich chain Schlotzsky’s has made its local debut — with a new store at 1110 Culebra Road in Northwest San Antonio.

Key to the new look is a co-branding deal between Schlotzsky’s and Cinnabon. Now, in addition to sandwiches, wraps and pizzas, patrons can also order tasty treats from a Cinnabon Express station — including the Cinnabon Classic Roll and CinnaPacks.

The restaurants are also heavy on tongue-in-cheek phrases — which have been incorporated into the tables and chairs and the circular-themed photography.
