Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop is one-upping its Thanksgiving-inspired The Bobbie® — voted the “Greatest Sandwich in America” — and introducing gravy and mashed potatoes for a limited time only. The Bobbie® is made with slow-roasted turkey topped with cranberry sauce, handmade stuffing and mayo, but fans have been begging for the only natural side – gravy – for years. Today is a day fans can truly be thankful for.
For years, Capriotti’s fans have demanded gravy loud and clear, with hundreds of social requests for a hot, savory gravy to perfect The Bobbie®. Recent requests have included:
- “The Bobbie is already my favorite and every time I eat it my first thought is ‘This sandwich would be perfect with a side of gravy for dipping.’” – @xporter88
- “GRAVY FOR THE BOBBIE IS ALL THAT IS MISSING” – @pmk5252
- “Need to pour gravy on it” – @mattt3637
The sandwich shop is meeting these not-so-subtle demands with an optional side of gravy for a limited time. House-made gravy at Capriotti’s is a step above, made alongside the whole turkeys the restaurants roast in house each day.
What happens when you make fans’ gravy dreams come true? They also ask for mashed potatoes. Capriotti’s is beating them to the punch by also introducing a side of mashed red potatoes to the feast. Both gravy and mashed potato menu options are available now through Jan. 15, 2024.
“This holiday season, we’re thankful for our fans making the overwhelming call to add gravy to our extraordinary menu,” said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s.
