In 1971, a small shop on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas was home to a single, unique sandwich. The menu was succinct: one delectable sandwich composed of a unique combination of premium meats, cheeses, and marinated black olives served on hot Schlotzsky's sourdough bread. From humble origins, "The Original" created a passionate customer following. More than 30 years later, The Original sandwich is the mainstay of Schlotzsky's Deli™, an international franchise restaurant chain known for its fresh baked bread, delicious hot sandwiches, specialty pizzas, toasted wraps, freshly tossed salads, gourmet soups, and more! Today, we proudly serve customers in 37 states and 6 foreign countries.
