Starting today, Potbelly Sandwich Shop will offer three-cheese mac and cheese with your choice of premium toppings, including bacon, chili, Potbelly hot peppers, mushrooms or roasted red peppers.
After sampling all of the Mac & Cheese, my favorite topping was bacon bits.
Potbelly is off to a red-hot start in Uptown and owner Shak Patel has already announced a second location that will open in SouthPark’s Piedmont Town Center.
Hot! Hot! Hot!
In terms of volume and pricing, a side-sized mac costs $4.10, a cup costs $5.15 and a bowl costs $6.50.
While prices seem steep, Charlotte loves Potbelly and Charlotte loves mac and cheese, so I’m bullish on this rollout.
Oh, and Pastrami lovers like me can rejoice: Potbelly is also adding pastrami to their meat lineup today.
