The new Dripping Springs, Texas Schlotzsky’s will be the 20th restaurant owned by Cary and Jackie Albert. Though most of their restaurants are in the Dallas area, they are looking forward to expanding in Central Texas.

“We are very proud to expand in Austin with our Schlotzsky’s franchises, and we’re really excited to bring our addictive recipes, upbeat surroundings and funny sayings to the Dripping Springs community, as well,” Owner Cary Albert said. “It’s hard not to smile when you walk into our bright new restaurant, smell the bread baking and see how much fun we have with ‘bun humor.’ The Hill Country area west of Austin is in for a real treat.”

Built with Schlotzsky’s rebranding efforts in mind, the restaurant includes a co-branding deal with Cinnabon. In addition, everything from tables and chairs to circular-themed local photography – featuring tongue-in-cheek phrases – is designed to entertain and cater to the guest.

Schlotzsky’s offers more than 15 different signature sandwiches served on its legendary Fresh-from-Scratch oven-baked sourdough buns, as well as gourmet pizzas built upon its unique sourdough crust, artisan flatbreads, freshly made-to-order tossed salads, a variety of savory soups and delectable desserts, including a Cinnabon Express bakery where guests can enjoy a number of warm, homemade treats, including the Cinnabon Classic Roll and CinnaPacks.
