Dallas sandwich empire stacks more neighborhoods with new shops
The sandwich train keeps rolling with two new locations of East Hampton Sandwich Co. A branch is opening in North Dallas, across from Jesuit High School; the other is opening in Southlake.
That'll make six eateries total, says founder Hunter Pond, whose goal was to create a concept that was more elevated than the usual sandwich shop, with top ingredients served in a stylish atmosphere. Both locations will open in summer 2016.
Menu options include the lobster roll, the sandwich for which the chain has become best known, plus turkey, bacon, avocado; fried chicken; and balsamic tenderloin. Sandwiches come with house-made chips.
There are seasonal sandwiches and salads such as chicken Caesar, turkey Cobb, and golden pear pancetta. The shops also serve beer and wine, including the signature white sangria.
Pond and his partners have plans to open more branches in Texas. There are currently four locations: Snider Plaza, Turtle Creek Village, Shops at Legacy in Plano, and Fort Worth.
The Southlake branch is at 2211 E. Southlake Blvd., #500, and it opens in early August. The Inwood branch opens in late August at 12300 Inwood Rd., south of the LBJ Freeway.
