Mankato will soon have its first Potbelly Sandwich Shop.
The 2,000 square foot quick service restaurant with a drive-thru will be located at 1859 Madison Avenue in the space that used to house Jo’s Fitness Garage and before that an auto repair business.
China Star will remain on the west side of the building.
Potbelly’s menu includes a variety of sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts. The sandwiches include the likes of the Italian, Mediterranean Chicken, Grilled Cheese, Tuna Salad and the Clubby.
Each location also includes a Potbelly stove, which the restaurant chain notes warmed millions of homes for many years and “acted as gathering places – warm little outposts where local people could share a meal and some conversation.”
Potbelly also promises 8 minutes or less to get through the line at their restaurants.
