MILWAUKEE – Potbelly Sandwich Shop is opening its second
store in the city of Milwaukee on Nov. 19, according to
a company statement.
The shop, which will be at 2239 N. Prospect Ave.,
Milwaukee, will employ about 20 people.
“I can’t wait to get back to the east side,” said Mark
Claesges, a Potbelly general manager. “I lived there for
15 years just down the block from the new shop. I saw
the transformation from the former drug store and
Century Hall days to the present. It has always been a
friendly place to live.”
The shop will partner with Maryland Avenue Montessori
School during its pre-opening event, which will raise
funds for the school.
Potbelly operates 288 shops in 18 states. The sandwich
shop already has stores in downtown Milwaukee next to
The Shops of Grand Avenue, at Bayshore Town Center in
Glendale, and in Lake Geneva and Brookfield.
