Sioux Falls is getting a new restaurant option when the national chain Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens their doors in the strip mall on the east side of Scheels at 41st & Western. Owners are planning on a mid-December opening.

Potbelly's menu includes a variety of sandwiches, salads and soups, along with hand-dipped milkshakes and smoothies. Meats and cheeses are sliced fresh daily.

The franchisee says he saw a line out the door when he was in Minneapolis and had to see what all the fuss was about and loved what he saw.

Potbelly was founded in 1977 and has over 280 stores nationwide. The Sioux Falls store will employ 20-25 people. If the store is successful, they may open other locations in Sioux Falls. If you'd like to apply for a job, go to
