Potbelly’s Introduces New Sandwich: The Clubby Eick October 8, 2008 Sandwiches 8 Comments Potbelly’s has had success with keeping their menu simple and uncluttered. But just the other day, they announced the first new sandwich addition to their menu in over five years: The Clubby. The Clubby will consist of ham, turkey, bacon, provolone cheese and ranch dressing.Â The most interesting aspect of it though, is that Potbelly’s will be straying from their “all sandwiches for the same price” formula.Â The Clubby will have 30% more meat than Potbelly’s 11 other sandwiches and will cost $5.39, compared with the standard $4.19 for their other sandwiches. My thoughts? I have three. 1. Um….isn’t extra meat only $.50 or $1.00? And if so, doesn’t that mean this isn’t a particularly good deal in terms of the amount of meat you get? 2. Ham, Turkey, bacon, provolone? Sure, sounds yummy.Â But ranch dressing? Ick. Keep that off my sandwiches. Ranch has a time and a place, and sandwiches ain’t it. 3. While the idea of a larger sandwiches at Potbelly’s is intriguing, I think their current sandwiches are perfect size for a meal, and I’m guessing most people agree. It remains to be seen how the Clubby will do, but rest assured, I will be ordering a Wreck with the works just like I always do.

I think it sounds good. Reply Youppi October 8th, 2008 with The Wreck and their Meatball Sub, it’s no wonder they never had to add another sandwich because these are hands down two of the best sandwiches I’ve ever eaten. point is, I’m unimpressed with “The Clubby” and probably wouldn’t even try it, seeing as how the others are guaranteed delicious, and a $1 cheaper.
