"It's such a great moment to be opening in Irvine and for this to be the first of more to come in Southern California and beyond in the state," said Bhatia. "It is an honor to bring our tasty sandwiches, salads, shakes and cookies to our community - everyone is in for a real treat! As we continue to develop Potbelly shops throughout the area, I'm confident we will grow our devoted fan base who crave our sandwiches and good vibes."

Potbelly shops have earned a reputation across the United States for having delicious food and fun decor, especially within bustling communities like Irvine.

"Sameer is the perfect fit to spearhead the brand's growth into California - his passion for what makes Potbelly unique and his commitment to providing a great customer experience is truly inspiring," said Jeff Welch, Senior Vice President of Development for Potbelly. "We're excited for Sameer's first location to open and are confident the shop will quickly become a local favorite."
