The new local sandwich shop is owned and operated by married couple Anneliese and Paul Claps. Anneliese and Paul both have extensive professional experience in the restaurant industry, and always had dreams of owning their own dining option. Paul decided to try the brand for himself when he heard about Capriotti's while listening to a local radio interview with Capriotti's CEO Ashley Morris. After experiencing the quality food Capriotti's offers at an affordable price, the Claps knew the sandwich shop would be the perfect way to begin their entrepreneurial careers.

"After trying the product, what really sealed the deal for us was the support and understanding from the brand's corporate team," said Paul. "Once we felt philosophically aligned with Capriotti's and personally believed in the quality of the product, we knew we wanted to bring it to our community. We're very excited to get started and share Capriotti's with the residents and guests of St. Charles."
