In 1971, a small shop on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas was home to a single, one-of-a-kind product. The Original® sandwich has always been, well, original! Let's be real: You can't find one delectable sandwich with a unique combination of 13 flavors and ingredients, featuring premium meats, cheeses, and marinated olives just anywhere. What really sets this and all Schlotzsky's® sandwiches apart, though, is our bread. No frozen buns here! Our special Fresh-from-Scratch® bread recipes are made on location and baked to perfection. It's that kind of freshness that has created a passionate customer following.

Since 1971, customers' tastes have evolved, and so has the menu. While, the Original® sandwich is still the favorite at Schlotzsky's®. Today you can enjoy a variety of delicious hot, toasted sandwiches, specialty pizzas on Fresh-from-Scratch® crusts, fresh salads, gourmet soups, tasty wraps and delectable desserts.
