Potbelly bills itself as “the neighborhood sandwich shop,” according to the company’s website. Here’s more:
“We want our customers to feel that we are their ‘Neighborhood Sandwich Shop’ and to tell others about their great Potbelly experience. Our mission is to make people really happy. We’re committed to serving simple ingredients done right– toasty warm sandwiches, craveable salads, delicious soup, fresh baked cookies, and hand-dipped milkshakes and smoothies.
“Potbelly lets you leave the world behind for a little while. It’s a friendly oasis, a comfy hangout with memorabilia celebrating the local neighborhood. Our “neighborhood shop” mentality means we get to know our regular Potbellians (and their favorite sandwich and toppings).
“So pull up a chair and sit awhile. Make us your neighborhood gathering place. Let us be your best place for lunch (or dinner, or shake, or cookie-time…). Friendly folks and the welcoming warmth of a potbelly stove are always here to greet you.”
Potbelly considers itself a responsible company:
“Potbelly is committed to improving the world by improving the communities we serve. That means being a responsible member in each of our neighborhoods and always looking for ways to improve our footprint and relationships with people.
A happy earth means happy people and happy people mean happy customers. And since part of our mission is to make people really happy, we do our best to make decisions that are respectful of our planet’s resources and those we work with and serve.”
