Project Introduction

The Noble Sandwich Company from Rightfrog Productions on Vimeo.

Hello Noble friends,
We're exited to share this "keep what we raise" campaign with you.  Our new Burnet Rd location is close to opening and this fundraising effort will help us purchase some great specialty equipment, restore our vintage Dr. Pepper sign (found behind the old building facade), and add some wonderful finishing touches to our remodel.

Though Noble Sandwich Co. opened in earnest in September 2010, its real beginning came out of the friendship between John Bates and Brandon Martinez, which began in culinary school in their native Corpus Christi in 1998.

The philosophy behind the Noble Sandwich Co. is grounded in culinary experiences that range from trattoria fare to fine dining, as well as a love for scratch cooking. Yet, it’s a philosophy that can be summed up simply: Make it and make it better than the guy down the street.

Starting next month, Noble Sandwich Co. brings its great food and hospitality to a new Austin street, Burnet Road. We'd love to have you be a Noble Supporter and receive some early discounts, great eats and other exciting perks.

Tell us why you think you will succeed?

Noble Sandwich Co. is more than a sandwich shop - our guests taste and feel the difference in the food and care that goes into preparing it from the moment they are introduced to Noble Sandwich Co. Our core menu features sandwiches, sides, soups, salads, and breakfast, and lighter-fare for those that crave delicious food without all the calories. We even provide gluten-free options. Our mission is to serve a product that is made from scratch, wholesome, and of the highest quality; with no compromises.

Our first location received national exposure as a featured restaurant on Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America.  Mr. Richman later commented to GQ that "there's nothing like it on the planet. And on home-baked bread? It's ridiculous. " 

In 2012, we also welcomed Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, where after some early threats, Guy Fieri blessed our knuckle sandwich as worthy of it's name.

In 2013, we were listed as a Top Sandwich Spot by Bon Appetit.

What support do you need?

We're excited and very close to opening our new Burnet Rd location.  We want to give you the first look and opportunity to enjoy all that we've been working on.

This is a one time opportunity to receive unique perks including special dinners, T-shirts, hats & lifetime discounts!

There are so many ways to help.  Of course, you can donate and receive the perks that suit your fancy, scroll over the dollar amounts to see the details.  

If you can't find one you like, let us know!  Email us, perks@noblesandwiches.com and we'll consider adding a new perk.  

Lastly, tell your friends and the world about our campaign.  Like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter
