BEAVERCREEK — Primanti Brothers opened its new Beavercreek location to more than 100 dedicated fans Wednesday.
The restaurant is part sports bar, part family establishment, but all about big, tasty sandwiches.
“We began feeding people in 1933 in Pittsburgh’s Strip District,” Primanti Bros. spokesman Ryan Wilkinson said. “Our signature item is a really huge sandwich. It’s two pieces of Italian bread with grilled meat, melted cheese, a big stack of french fries, a big stack of coleslaw, two tomatoes….”
The restaurant’s menu includes those sizable sandwiches, salads, chili, pizza and other offerings.
According to Wilkinson, the restaurant chain, which has several other locations primarily in Pennsylvania, chose Beavercreek for an expansion because it was a good fit for the company.
“As we’ve grown, it’s been really important for us to look and find other places that share similar traits to Pittsburgh, that’s hard working, that’s proud, that’s down to earth, people with a certain – in a very positive way – you’ve got a little grit and you’re proud of who you are and where you are,” he said. “Dayton and Beavercreek [are cities] that we think [align] with that.”
