Midwestern Sandwich Franchise to Open First East Coast Location Just Outside DecaturDecatur Metro | February 23, 2011
Decatur Heights Dad reports that the sandwich franchise “Erbert & Gerbert’s” is opening a location in the contemporary-style commercial strip on E. Ponce de Leon Ave next to the Asian market, just beyond the city limits. (Here’s the Google Streetview, if you’re still unclear as to where we’re referencing.) A check of their website confirms it.
According to the site, Erbert & Gerbert’s serves up subs, soups, sides and desserts and was founded back in 20 years ago in Wisconsin. The sandwich shop currently only has stores in Colorado, Minnesota, North & South Dakota and Wisconsin.
According to Wikipedia, they have an interesting way of preparing subs…
They prepare their sandwiches differently from their competitors: they “take out the guts”, (cut the bread and take out the soft white dough part). Nothing goes to waste; they leave the guts on top of the sandwich when they are done. They emphasize quality ingredients and often are located near college areas.
