Become A Franchisee
We’ve been taking sandwiches seriously for over thirty years, and in all that time, we’ve never once compromised on the good stuff. That means artisanal bread – the fresh, crusty, fluffy kind – and gourmet meats left to slow roast for 14 hours to juicy, crackly perfection.
Life is all about balance, that’s why we prepare our gourmet salads, wraps, juices and smoothies with the same amount of enthusiasm as that very first sandwich, using only the freshest ingredients.
All so we can bring real flavour and wholesome hunger busting fun to your morning breakfast and lunch-time breaks.
We’re the unlikely family you wish you were born into. Bound together by a good attitude and a healthy appetite for feeding others, we exist in almost 60 stores right around Australia, the only thing more exciting than eating at Sandwich Chefs?
