Potbelly Sandwich Shop will open its first area location on the Country Club Plaza this week.
The restaurant, at 4725 Broadway, officially opens on June 4. However, it will have an “oven warming” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m. June 3. Customers will get a Potbelly sandwich, bag of chips and drink, in return they will be asked to donate $5 or more with the funds benefiting the Kansas City Art Institute.
Potbelly specializes in toasted sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes and made-to-order salads. It also is opening an Overland Park location and perhaps more restaurants in the metro.
