Potbelly Sandwich Shop Is Coming to Porter Square in Cambridge
A Chicago-based chain of sub shops that recently opened its first two New England locations in Boston is planning to open another location in the area, with this one being across the river.
Cambridge Day is reporting that a building permit in the former Uno Chicago Grill space in Porter Square indicates that Potbelly Sandwich Shop is apparently moving into the spot. This would be the third Potbelly to come to the immediate area, with one opening at Logan Airport in East Boston in April of this year and another opening on Washington Street in downtown Boston last month. A fourth location is opening at Wayside Commons in Burlington as well.
[April 23, 2013 update: According to their website, Potbelly is planning to open in Porter Square this summer. Also, the Potbelly in Burlington opens today, and another one in Braintree recently opened as well.]
Potbelly Sandwich Shop, which started out in 1977, features sandwiches labeled "originals," "bigs," and "skinnys," with options including roast beef, chicken, tuna, ham, meatballs, turkey, and more.
The address for the upcoming Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Porter Square is 1 Porter Square, Cambridge, MA, 02140. The website for the chain is at http://www.potbelly.com/
