Potbelly started in 1977 when a little antique store on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago started selling toasted sandwiches (right along with vintage stoves, old books and other knick knacks) to boost business. The same care and attention used to select antiques went into the recipes and menu preparation of the new restaurant, with meats and cheeses sliced in the store every day and the bread baking as the sandwich came out of the oven, making it perfectly toasted on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Fresh, crisp vegetables and condiments topped them for a tasty sandwich like no other. And folks could add an old-fashioned, real ice cream milkshake that was hand dipped especially for them. Potbelly still does things exactly the same way today.
