Capriotti's is known for its wide array of sandwiches including The Bobbie, made with fresh oven-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo, the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and homemade coleslaw and the cheesesteak is made with premium steak, chicken or Impossible plant-based meat and melted cheese plus hot or sweet peppers. The Allentown Capriotti's will offer a convenient order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services. The new shop will bring 20 new jobs to the Allentown community.

The new Capriotti's is owned by Michael Seibert and operated by his son Ryan and brother Billy. Michael has 32 years of experience as a financial advisor but has a background in the food industry. Growing up in the Philadelphia region, Michael knew it was important to bring a good cheesesteak to Allentown. After one bite into Capriotti's American wagyu cheesesteak he had his sights set on the brand. Each cheesesteak served at the Allentown Capriotti's will be served on a Liscio's roll that are delivered fresh daily. The entire Seibert family spent time in restaurant management prior to opening a Capriotti's. The Seibert family as a whole will play a role in the day-to-day operation at Capriotti's in Allentown, with a pair of other family members on their mind.

"In the past year my mother and sister lost their lives to COVID-19. Both of them worked in the restaurant industry with Billy and I," said Michael Seibert. "We plan to open Capriotti's and run the shop in honor of them. We want to greet every customer with a smile and great energy the way my mother and sister would have."
