The Beloved Shop Brings its Toasty Warm Sandwiches, Signature Shakes and Live Music to River Center Mall
Opening is set for March 15th
Potbelly Sandwich Shop announced today the opening of a new location at 849 E Commerce St. San Antonio, TX 78205, situated in downtown San Antonio’s River Center Mall. Set to open on Tuesday, March 15, the widely acclaimed neighborhood hangout will feature its toasty warm sandwiches, hand-dipped milkshakes, tasty made-to-order salads and live, local music, which make it “The Best Place for Lunch.”
Earning a reputation in neighborhoods across the United States for having delicious food, fun décor and local musicians performing, Potbelly shops are also well known for their friendly and lively people. Lynne Heron, the general manager of the new sandwich shop, has been with the brand for close to a year, and is transitioning from managing the location at The Rim to the new downtown shop.
“The community in downtown San Antonio is ready for Potbelly to open here,” said Heron. “Many San Antonians have been to our nearby locations, but they have also been yearning for our signature sandwiches, shakes, salads and freshly baked cookies near their jobs and tourist attractions. We are very excited to make that happen for everyone here.”
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 at Potbelly Sandwich Shops around the country. Interested performers in and around downtown San Antonio should contact the new shop manager to apply and to schedule an audition.
“From our warm neighborhood atmosphere to our welcoming service, we make guests feel right at home as soon as they arrive,” Heron added. “Potbelly is the perfect place to enjoy a quick lunch with friends or a relaxing dinner after a busy day. Our San Antonio-based musicians also set the tone in our restaurant for a strong community-driven experience for everyone.”
To celebrate the launch of the new location, Potbelly Sandwich Shop will host its traditional pre-opening Oven Warming event. One hundred percent of proceeds from the event will be donated to the Paseo del Rio Association. This fundraising celebration will occur on March 14, 2016 between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for lunch, and between 5 and 7 p.m. for dinner.
In addition to the Oven Warming event, Potbelly Sandwich Shop will consider fundraising requests to support neighborhood non-profit organizations beginning 30 days after opening.

The new Potbelly Sandwich Shop includes about 20 staff members, ranging from customer service to managers. The shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
