In the past couple of years Chicago-based chain Potbelly Sandwich Works has embarked on a speedy-ambitious expansion plan, plotting first-ever stakes along both coasts while growing in existing markets.
The first for the Seattle area opened on Fourth and
Pine Pike in early June, and on August 30 downtown Bellevue gets one at 10680 NE Fourth Street, according to a company spokesperson. We also learned last month another Pbelly is going in the 1100 block of Third Avenue, not far from that first one.
And it sounds as if more are in store: “We are exploring many of Seattle’s great neighborhoods for possible Potbelly shops,” said the rep when asked about further expansion plans, “but the timing and locations are yet to be finalized.”
