Schlotzsky’s Englewood: A Lifelong Dream

Lea Dalleggio didn’t want to be a movie star or president of the United States when she grew up.  All she wanted to be was an owner of a casual dining chain called Schlotzsky’s.  As a child, Lea would travel from her home in Monmouth County, New Jersey to spend summers with her grandmother in Houston, Texas.  She started eating at Schlotzsky’s when she was five years old and for two decades begged her father to open a restaurant in the Garden State.  Upon her completion of undergraduate and MBA programs at Rutgers University, the 25 year old finally got her wish.  Her father, Anthony Dalleggio, bought the New Jersey franchise rights to Schlotzsky’s as an investment for his family and Lea was soon on her way to running not only her first business, but New Jersey’s first Schlotzsky’s.  Dalleggio and her family plan to open an additional 16 locations in the Garden State over the next five years.

“As a child, I loved the freshly baked buns, the smell of the restaurant, the bright colors and the delicious sandwiches and salads,” said Lea Dalleggio, Englewood Schlotzsky’s franchise co-owner.  “Schlotzsky’s signature sandwich The Original®, a play on the New Orleans muffaletta with soft bread encasing tender meats, cheeses, lettuce, tomato and chopped olives, was something I dreamed about as a kid when I wasn’t in Texas.  My goal was to bring this distinctive sandwich on bread baked from scratch, salad and soup restaurant concept to the Garden State where I could get my year-round fix while providing the community with a completely new dining option that would be as attractive to kids as it would be adults.  We have fans driving to Englewood from Virginia to enjoy our sandwiches.  That’s how much of a following the brand has.  People stockpile our potato chips, which are made exclusively for Schlotzsky’s and come in nine varieties, to complement all our sandwiches.”

Located in the Englewood ShopRite Plaza at 39 Nathaniel Place, the casual dining eatery is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM – 8:30 PM, Saturday from 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM and Sunday from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM.  The restaurant also offers Cinnabon cinnamon rolls and self-serve Carvel ice cream.  The restaurant serves Jersey Roasters Coffee, a blend produced in the Garden State, and will soon offer yogurt and fruit salad breakfast selections.  The location has bold, bright colors, making it a good venue for birthday parties and sports team league gatherings.  The restaurant offers catering in the region  with minimum orders of $30.  For more information, call (201) 608-5422 or visit www.schlotzskys.com.

Schlotzsky’s Inks Franchise Agreement for 55 New Restaurants Throughout Seven Former Soviet Countries

Schlotzsky’s®, home of The Original® round toasted sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch® buns, recently signed a franchise agreement for 55 restaurants throughout seven of the former Soviet countries, including Russia, Belarus, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

The master franchise agreement was awarded to Moscow-based entrepreneur Mehmet Akpinar, who plans to open the first restaurant in Moscow. The remaining locations are expected to open over the next 10 years.

“This is a time-tested brand that has the ability to bring people together, from all walks, in their love for Schlotzsky’s sandwiches,” said Akpinar, who currently owns Pegas Touristik, a large tour operator which services Moscow and Antalya, as well as the newly formed Golden International Management Services Ltd. “After looking at the international success of Focus Brands’ restaurants and the available market share for a restaurant like Schlotzsky’s in these countries, it seemed like a natural fit for us. I’m thrilled to open the first location.”

Mike Shattuck, President of Focus Brands International, said this was one of the more significant deals the company has ever signed.

“This is a huge deal for us – we love expanding the Schlotzsky’s brand with entrepreneurs like Mehmet, who understand the complexities, challenges, and rewards of operating a company within their respective country,” he said.

As with domestic growth, further international expansion remains a focal point for Schlotzsky’s in 2013 and beyond. Company plans call for over 30 locations in the next five years.

International Schlotzsky’s franchise locations can currently be found in Azerbaijan, Turkey, and South Africa.

Schlotzsky’s offers more than 15 different sandwiches on its famous unique round freshly-baked buns, as well as gourmet pizzas made with Fresh-from-Scratch crusts, freshly made-to-order tossed salads, and a variety of soups.

Get Your Kicks with Route 66 Sandwiches

Route 66, also known as the Main Street of America, is the inspiration behind Schlotzsky’s latest menu additions. Running from Chicago to California, the historic stretch of highway winds its way through numerous states, incorporating a variety of different cultures, tastes, and flavors. From now until August 25, the home of The Original round-toasted sandwich will feature these flavors in three signature sandwiches.

After the initial leg in 2010, which was the most successful summer promotion in company history, Schlotzsky’s extended its journey down Route 66 to the fall season. Gearing up for another trip, which combines the flavors of the last two promotions, Schlotzsky’s has brought back the Windy City Pastrami & Swiss, California Chick, and Albuquerque Turkey.

“Back in 2010, our guests fell in love with the bold, regional flavors of the Route 66 promotion,” says Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s. “We could not be more excited to bring back these crowd-favorite sandwiches and celebrate this historic stretch of highway again this summer.”

The three signature sandwiches include:

· Windy City Pastrami & Swiss: sliced pastrami and melted Swiss cheese with Dijon mustard and our signature dressing on toasted Dark Rye bread.

· California Chick: thinly sliced, roasted chicken breast, pepper jack cheese, bacon, guacamole, red onion, tomatoes, lettuce and fat free spicy ranch dressing on toasted Jalapeño Cheese bread.

· Albuquerque Turkey: smoked turkey breast and crispy bacon with cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses layered with fire-roasted vegetables, chipotle mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, tomato and our signature dressing on toasted Jalapeño Cheese bread.
