Potbelly Sandwich Shop in downtown Rochester to close

(ABC 6 News) – A well-known sandwich shop in downtown Rochester is closing.

According to its Facebook page, Potbelly Sandwich Shop’s last day at the downtown location will be September 23.

Business owners say the last three years have been “fraught with struggle, including persistent and complex workforce challenges. We are now at a crossroads – the expiration of both our franchise agreement and lease for this location presented the opportunity to simplify.”

The post said their “energies will now be fully focused on our northwest location” at 3801 Marketplace Dr NW.
