SCHLOTZSKY’S Opens in Pier Park

by February 18, 2011 • 7 comments

Pier Park and Panama City Beach, are in for a sandwich influx this season.

Along with the news of Subway opening up in Pier Park, sandwich enthusiast can look forward to Schlotzsky’s moving in and joining the Pier Park family.

Schlotzsky’s started it’s nation wide take-over, with humble origins that date back to 1971.  Originally launched in Austin, Texas with a basic menu comprised of sourdough bread and a selection of premium meats, cheeses and olives.

The humble beginning eventually morphed into 35 locations nationwide and four foreign locations. I have to say, I wish I would have known that during my travels through out Spain.

I loved trying out the local cuisine, but every now and then, even an American Girl traveling abroad, craves the simple taste of home. Be it toasted sub, or a New York bagel.

Schlotzsky’s Pier Park store is opening it’s doors on February 21, 2011 and boast an eclectic selection of subs, wraps, salads and gourmet pizzas, along with desserts and soups.

I was just having lunch at Pier Park today and met a Shlotzsky’s employee/owner/manager, not sure.. but he was very nice and made sure that I knew about the opening on Monday! Looking forward to another eating out choice at Pier Park!

This is a very interesting concept. When we had a Schlotzsky’s here in Columbus it was more of a casual order-then-sit restaurant, seems like they’re evolving– I look forward to eating here during Spring Break.

I have been a Scholtzsky’s patron since 1981 when we got one in Marietta,GA on Roswell Road. Their sandwiches are the best! What a great addition to Pier Park.

This is great news….. I can’t wait to visit Schlotzsky’s when we come down in June, just another great place to catch a bite & enjoy the scenery!
Good Luck to them, I’m sure they will have lots of satisfied customers.
