Trio of Friends Brings First Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop Location to Charlotte


Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, known for its award-winning, hand-crafted cheese steaks, turkey subs and more, has just opened in Charlotte at 2040 Freeman Park Dr. Capriotti’s brings the Charlotte community its 47-year tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-pulling them every morning along with other favorites all made with fresh ingredients.

The restaurantserves three sandwiches made from American Wagyu that include the American Wagyu Slaw Be Jo, American Wagyu Cheese Steak and American Wagyu Roast Beef. The Charlotte Capriotti’s will offer a convenient order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services. The new shop will bring 30 new jobs to the Charlotte community.

David Froman was a frequent Capriotti’s diner when he would visit his family in Las Vegas before his move to Charlotte where there were no Capriotti’s locations. That led him to call his friend, Todd Guear, and the duo decided to invest and they opened their first location in Fort Mill, S.C. Now, Froman and Guear are ready to open their second location and first in the Charlotte community. The store will be run by Guear’s childhood friend and local resident Jon Tavernier who will serve as the area manager. As the trio prepares for their Charlotte store, they have plans to bring more locations throughout the city in the coming future.

“We are excited to bring a fun and inviting restaurant to Charlotte where friends and families can come together to enjoy a meal,” said Froman. “There is a true difference in the homemade, premium products that Capriotti’s offers its guests.”
