Area’s second Which Wich? sandwich shop to open in Folsom

A second Sacramento-area Which Wich? Superior Sandwiches is scheduled to open Sept. 11 in Folsom.

The restaurant will open at 10 a.m. at 1300 E. Bidwell St. The primary operators of the family-run business are Amit Patel and his wife, Bhumi.

The Dallas-based fast-casual chain features more than 50 varieties of customizable sandwiches and is known for its ordering system. Customers grab a red Sharpie marker and mark up a pre-printed menu on a sandwich bag. The customer enters his/her name at the top and hands it over. The food is then delivered in the personalized sandwich bag.

In 2014, the Dallas-based chain said it was looking for franchise opportunities throughout the Sacramento area. Ultimately, the chain is looking to open more than a dozen Which Wich? outlets at various area locales.

The Folsom eatery joins the Which Wich? sandwich shop at 1020 16th St., in midtown Sacramento.
