Capriotti's is known for its wide array of sandwiches including The Bobbie, made with fresh oven-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo, the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and homemade coleslaw and the cheesesteak is made with premium steak, chicken or Impossible plant-based meat and melted cheese plus hot or sweet peppers. The Wilmington Capriotti's will offer a convenient order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services. The new shop will bring 20 new jobs to the Wilmington community.

The new location is owned by entrepreneur Kim Schneese. Schneese was first introduced to Capriotti's when her mother started working for the founder and her friend, Lois Margolet. Starting off as the bookkeeper, her mother eventually became the owner of the fourth ever Capriotti's located at 2124 Silverside Road also in North Wilmington. Schneese remembers growing up at the shop and getting to know the many employees that still work there today. After spending some time as an investment accountant, Schneese decided to work with her mother at Capriotti's, eventually taking over the business. She is now excited to add on to that legacy, and bring a second location to her hometown.

"It's rewarding to have been with this company from the beginning, and to be able to watch it grow into what it is today," said Schneese. "Capriotti's has been such a large part of my family, and I'm excited to be able to keep contributing to the community with another location."
