Originally started in 1994 as an upscale coffee and sandwich shop, the fast-casual bakery-cafe is competing in the better-sandwich market, which is on an upswing right now. Appealing to the health-conscious crowd, the chain is transparent with its menu of wraps, panini, quesadillas and salads, even listing the exact four ingredients in its signature brick-oven flatbread on its website.
