Now Open Lincoln Park

Capriotti's Sandwich Shop has debuted a new location in Lincoln Park at 1730 W. Fullerton Ave.

The new location is locally owned and operated by friends and business partners, Justin Thomas and Jaison Chacko. The pair both grew up in India and met while studying together in college. They quickly became friends, and had always talked about owning a business together. After graduating, both decided to become respiratory therapists. Having seen the impact they can have in that role especially given the COVID 19 pandemic, they knew that they wanted to continue to contribute to the community as much as they can. While still working as respiratory therapists, the pair didn’t want to give up on their dream to open a business together, and will now be bringing Capriotti’s to their city. “In college we worked together at a gas station and we pitched the idea to the owners of opening a deli,” said Thomas and Chacko. “We completely designed the menu ourselves and really enjoyed the concept. With that as our background, when we saw the amount of care that goes into Capriotti’s sandwiches we knew it was something we needed to bring to the community.”

Capriotti’s offers and 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 steak, chicken or Impossible plant-based meat and melted cheese plus hot or sweet peppers. The Lincoln Park Capriotti’s will offer an order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services.
