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

Our brand culture is unique and down-to-earth, all inspired by our birthplace in Austin, TX. We create shareable experiences with products and services that satisfy our fans, build wealth for our franchise owners, enrich the lives of our local communities, and support local growth.

“our food is unique. it’s something that can’t be imitated. when you bring in new menu items, like tacos and sliders, it brings in more dinner business. it also helps you draw in customers throughout the day.”

Viral Patel, Franchise Owner with 30 Locations

we’ve always been an original.

In 1971, a small sandwich shop on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas, opened as the first Schlotzsky’s® with only one product—an 8‑inch muffuletta stuffed with three meats, cheeses, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and dressing served on hot, freshly made sourdough bread. The Original® sandwich was born.

Four images representing the Schlotzsky's timeline: the original store, a sandwich, people enjoying food, a modern location.
