Potbelly Sandwich Shop Is Opening in Downtown Boston

A Chicago-based chain of sub shops that opened its first New England location at Logan Airport this spring is going to be opening another location in Boston, with this one being in the heart of the downtown area.

According to their website, Potbelly Sandwich Shop is planning to open on Washington Street at the northern edge of Downtown Crossing, though no specific opening date has been given as of yet. Once it opens, the downtown outlet of Potbelly will feature "originals," "bigs," and "skinnys," with some of the sandwich options being turkey, ham, roast beef, meatball, chicken, tuna, and mushrooms.

[August 27 update: Grub Street Boston is reporting that the downtown location of Potbelly Sandwich Shop is having a job fair this week, with its opening expected over "the coming weeks."]

[September 5 update: According to a poster on Twitter--and confirmed by the restaurant's Facebook page--the new Potbelly Sandwich Shop in downtown Boston is going to be opening tomorrow (Thursday, September 6).]

There has been talk of other Potbelly locations coming to the Boston area as well, including one opening at Wayside Commons in Burlington at some point.

The address for this new sub shop in downtown Boston is: Potbelly Sandwich Shop, 275 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02108. The website for the chain can be found at
