The Food Biz: SkyHouse lands Delaware-based sandwich shop

Officials with Midtown mixed-use tower SkyHouse Nashville have announced Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop as a tenant.

The Delaware-based specialty sandwich shop, known for slow-roasting whole natural turkeys in-house, will join Orangetheory Fitness on the first floor of the 17th Avenue side of the high-rise (and across from McGavock Street) when it opens in early summer 2017.

This will be Capriotti’s first location in Tennessee, with franchisee Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy, LLC, to own and operate the eatery. The restaurant will offer on-site parking, an eating area, takeout and catering options.

Terms of the lease were not disclosed in the release. Stan Snipes and Ben Finney of Brentwood-based Snipes Properties represented Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy.

Capriotti's has more than 100 company-owned and franchise locations in 16 states and the District of Columbia. In November 2009, the restaurant’s Bobbie sandwich was voted "The Greatest Sandwich in America" by

Three additional retail spaces within the tower are available. Austin Benedict, a broker with the Nashville office of CBRE, is handling marketing and leasing efforts for the co-developers.
