The Deli Franchise That dishes up Flexibility

We got started slinging a single sandwich, affectionately dubbed The Original®. Today, we’ve expanded our menu just a bit, offering plenty of amazing options to satisfy every fan. Through it all, we’ve stayed true to our style as a deli franchise unlike any other.

Your Schlotzsky’s® franchise can fulfill fans’ desires for delicious food nearly anywhere thanks to our flexible footprints, including freestanding drive-thrus, end cap drive-thrus, in-line and non-traditional restaurants. We even have cobranding opportunities with our sister brands like Cinnabon®. It’s just one more way Schlotzsky’s® stands out from the crowd.

Training and Support to take you Further

Extensive training, including classroom instruction, will help turn you into a Scholtzsky's franchise expert. Ongoing support from our team and everyone at GoTo Foods will give you the leg up you need to excel.

You'll even get on-the-job experience in one of our successful, high-volume restaurants, so you'll know exactly what you need to do to make you Schlotzsky's® one of the greats.


Our food is unique. Our customers are loyal. We offer something that they can’t get anywhere else. We are fast, convenient, and consistent. Our sandwich bread and pizza crust is baked fresh-from-scratch each morning. And with life’s current demands, where else can you get a whole pizza at the drive-thru, in less than 4 minutes?
