Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop Closes Last San Diego Location

October 18, 2018

The self-described In-N-Out of sandwich shops - Capriotti's has closed the last of its San Diego locations.

At one point, Capriotti's had San Diego locations in Rolando, Hillcrest and San Marcos. The last remaining area location at 1620 Camino De La Reina in Mission Valley closed earlier this week. Three Southern California locations remain in operation in the Los Angeles area. 

Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop was founded in Delaware in 1976 and is known for its daily roasting of whole turkeys. Its most popular cold sub, The Bobbie, is a Thanksgiving-inspired creation made with pulled roasted turkey meat, cranberry sauce and stuffing. 

"Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop decided to close a corporate shop in the San Diego area as our lease was coming to an end," explained the company's CEO Ashley Morris. "We love San Diego, and are committed to bringing quality subs to people across the country. Rest assured, the Greatest Sandwich in America will be back in San Diego soon, no doubt about it."

The above-issued statement is very similar to the one issued last year when Capriotti's abruptly closed all its Orange County locations.
