Area's first Potbelly Sandwich Shop to open May 29

Potbelly Sandwich Shop will open its doors at 23064 Three Notch Rd., California, Md., May 29. This will give California- and Lexington Park-area residents the chance to experience the lively, neighborhood hangout that makes Potbelly Sandwich Shop “The Best Place for Lunch.”

Hanh Schofield is the general manager and has been with Potbelly for seven years, having previously managed other shops in the Washington, D.C., area. “I live in southern Maryland and love it here, so when the opportunity to open this shop came up, I jumped at the chance,” Schofield said. “This is a great small town with lots to do nearby—colleges, a Naval base, Solomon’s Island and the marina.”

The new shop will partner with the Three Oaks Center during its pre-opening event, the Oven Warming Party, to raise funds for the organization. “We chose to partner with Three Oaks Center because the organization does so much to help break the cycle of homelessness in this community,” said Schofield.

Known for its good vibes in addition to great sandwiches, live music has been a part of the Potbelly experience since the first shop opened in 1977. Neighborhood musicians put a little rhythm into lunch by performing live at Potbelly Sandwich Shops around the country. Musicians interested in performing at the new California-Lexington Park Potbelly should contact the shop manager.

Potbelly has built a passionate, loyal following of fans who spread the word about the fun, energetic atmosphere and great food. The unique Potbelly experience is defined by its combination of toasty warm sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes, tasty made-to-order salads, as well as friendly and lively people. “We’re really get know our regulars and what they like,” Schofield said. “We strive to make a connection with our customers and neighbors—plus, the live music makes us unique.”

This is the first Potbelly Sandwich Shop to open in the California-Lexington Park area and the shop will staff approximately 20 employees and managers. It is tentatively planned for the location to be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
