Potbelly logoPotbelly Sandwich Shop has announced the opening of a new shop at the intersection of King Street and Chesterfield Road at 4690 S. King Street in Alexandria, Virginia. Set to open on Tuesday, December 8th, the widely acclaimed neighborhood hangout will feature its toasty warm sandwiches, hand-dipped milkshakes, tasty made-to-order salads and live, local music, which make it “The Best Place for Lunch.”

Earning a reputation in neighborhoods across the United States for having delicious food, fun décor and local musicians performing, Potbelly shops are also well known for their friendly and lively people. Jessica Nickle, the general manager of the new sandwich shop, has been with the brand for two years.

“Potbelly Sandwich Shop offers the best of both worlds,” said Nickle. “From our toasty, warm sandwiches to our market-fresh salads, hand-dipped shakes and more, we have something on our menu for everyone. The community couldn’t be more excited about the opening of the new shop in Alexandria and we are looking forward to welcoming in an enthusiastic crowd as soon as we open.” 

Potbelly Sandwich Shop fans have grown to adore the brand while visiting nearby shops throughout Alexandria and the Greater Washington D.C. area. Known for its good vibes in addition to great sandwiches, live music has been a part of the Potbelly experience since the first shop opened in 1977. Neighborhood musicians put a little rhythm into lunch at Potbelly Sandwich Shops around the country. Interested performers in and around Alexandria should contact the new shop manager to apply and to schedule an audition.

“The buzz about the new shop has been building for months now,” Nickle added. “We are going to be a welcome addition to South King Street, which is lined with dining options. It won’t be long before our friends, families and neighbors in Alexandria are calling Potbelly Sandwich Shop home.”

To celebrate the launch of the new location, Potbelly Sandwich Shop will host its traditional oven warming event. The shop will donate 100 percent of proceeds from the pre-opening event to Wakefield High School to support the basketball program. The fundraising celebration will occur on Monday, December 7th between 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for lunch and 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. for dinner.

The new Potbelly Sandwich Shop includes about 20 staff members, ranging from customer service to managers. The shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Delivery service will start a few weeks after opening and will be available Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with minimum orders of $25.
