Our Story

In 1991 The Sandwich Co opened its first sandwich bar in Derry's city centre. Our goals today are the same as they were back then. We offer a unique eating experience and deliver food, atmosphere and comfort beyond the expectations of our customers, with food being served that would be identical from any of our stores.

Today, there are 11 Sandwich Co outlets on both sides of the border. They are all exceptional locations, serving the finest range of sandwiches available anywhere in Ireland and with one key difference to other chains out there. Consistency!


In the years since 1991, The Sandwich Co have opened 5 company owned stores. 3 are in Derry, 1 in Coleraine and 1 in Strabane with the first franchise opening in Omagh in 2004. This was followed by another in Letterkenny in the summer of 2007. At this point we had still never advertised for franchisees or in any way marketed the business as a model for franchising.

As all our products are freshly prepared in one location and delivered during the night to each store, we ensure that customers will not be disappointed when visiting any of our stores.

Unlike other cafe operators, our stores whether franchised or not, are 'display and serve' sandwich bars. Display the serve over cabinet each morning and spend your time doing what is really important, serving your customers!

The Future

We believe that our model of sandwich bar, which has changed considerably over the years, continuously sets the standard for others to follow. Our franchise has reached a maturity to allow others to take advantage of our business model, become partners of The Sandwich co and to develop the brand nationwide and maybe even further.

With the experience gained with our existing franchise partners, we are now looking for more enthusiastic, ambitious and passionate people to go into business with. If you believe that you have what it takes to go into business with The Sandwich Co then contact us either by phone to our head offices or fill out the form on the 'contact us' page of this website and we will get back to you.
