Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens in Kitsap Mall

UnknownA Potbelly Sandwich Shop opened in the Kitsap Mall food court this week, marking the sandwich chain’s entry into the West Sound market.

Potbelly offers hot sandwiches, soups, salads and hand-dipped milkshakes, according to a news release. The Silverdale shop is managed by East Bremerton native Mike Young and employs about 30 people.

“Opening in Silverdale is special for so many reasons, but none more than the connection we’re making with the community,” Young said in the release. “As someone who has spent many years on the Kitsap Peninsula, it gives me great pride to open this shop.”

Potbelly shops often feature live, local music. Interested performers can contact Young and schedule an audition.

Chicago-based Potbelly has 10 Seattle-area locations, and more than 360 shops nationally. The fast-growing chain expected to open about 50 shops this year, with plans to eventually build 1,000, according to a 2014 annual report to shareholders.

The Silverdale store is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Delivery service will start a few weeks, according to the release.

More new tenants coming to Kitsap Mall

potbelly2Kitsap Mall was already having a busy year, with the addition of Buffalo Wild Wings and the announcement of an H&M coming this fall. 

News of new tenants just keeps piling up.

As was announced earlier, Victoria’s Secret will reopen Saturday following a remodel, and a new PINK shop will make its debut. The opening for the 8,000-square-foot space is set for 9:45 a.m.

Mall General Manager Erin Leedham said work will begin soon on a Just Sports athletic apparel store. A Potbelly Sandwich Shop is “coming soon-ish” according to its signage.

Leedham said Dairy Queen was remodeled and expanded its menu, while Hot Topic opened in a new location. Lane Bryant is extending into new space.

Building permit applications indicate Qdoba Mexican Grill has a restaurant planned for mall. The mall hasn’t confirmed Qdoba as a tenant, and a Qdoba representative didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

As new stores arrive at the mall, others are exiting. A representative at Forever 21 confirmed the Silverdale store will close Friday, though there’s a chance it could reopen in another space.

Meanwhile, names of tenants at the future Trails at Silverdale shopping center keep trickling out. We will have more news on that front shortly.
