A Food-Crave, Fan-Fave, Industry-Rave Kind of Franchise

People have been craving Schlotzsky’s® since we first opened our doors on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas, in 1971. Back then, there was only one sandwich on the menu, The Original®, and that sandwich made us famous. These days, our loyal fans aren’t the only ones raving about us. The restaurant industry has been giving us love, too. Now, we’re ready to impress a whole new generation of diners by adding bold, new menu items and a cool new look. Add to that our Texas-sized sales with multiple dayparts, and passionate franchise owners who aren’t afraid to be a little bit different, and you’ve got a winner – you’ve got Schlotzsky’s.
