Schlotzsky’s was founded in 1971 by Don and Dolores Dissman. The first location was in Austin, Texas, and the menu consisted of one sandwich, which could be altered slightly by removing or adding different meats.
From this one sandwich and one location, Schlotzsky’s has grown to more than 350 company-owned and franchised locations throughout the U.S. In 2006, Schlotsky’s was purchased by Focus Brands. All Schlotzsky’s locations are being remodeled to include brighter colors and updated menus.
Schlotzsky’s offers a casual dining restaurant that serves a variety of sandwiches, pizzas, salads, pasta dishes, and wraps. The company has headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and is owned by parent company Focus Brands.
