Carmel will soon welcome its second Which Wich Superior Sandwiches shop. The new restaurant will be on Carmel’s west side at 4335 106th Street, Suite 1200.
The new Carmel franchise is expected to open May 21. It is owned and operated by local restaurateur Lee Kleiner of Carmel. Kleiner also operates Which Wich franchises in Whitestown, Avon and Greenwood.
Which Wich specializes in chef-curated sandwiches as well as create-your-own sandwich and salad options. Kleiner said Which Wich has a unique atmosphere and ordering process that sets it apart.
“When you come into our restaurants, our vibe is a little different. There’s music playing, our colors are bright yellow, our décor has an industrial feel. It has energy,” Kleiner said.
Customers place their orders by writing them on the sandwich bags that their food will be placed in. Which Wich Kids Meals come with a free token which can be used to get M&Ms from a special dispenser.
Some of Which Wich’s sandwich options feature unique ingredients such as eggs, sauerkraut and cured meats like salami and capicola.
“We also have create-your-own options with over 50 ingredients to choose from,” Kleiner said. “We have a lot of healthy options and vegetarian options, such as black bean patties.”
There are more than 400 Which Wich locations nationwide, with 11 in the Indianapolis area.
