SUGAR LAND, TEXAS (August 28, 2007) – Planned Community Developers (PCD) today announced Potbelly Sandwich Works, LLC, will open for business in Lake Pointe Town Center, the mixed-use, lifestyle development at the northwest intersection of U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 6.

From its humble beginnings as a small antique store, Potbelly has grown from one to more than 160 company-owned and -operated stores. Potbelly’s unique experience is defined by its combination of oven-toasted sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes, tasty made-to-order salads, live local music, as well as friendly and lively people.

Located at 1815 South Highway 6, Potbelly will occupy 2,400 square feet of retail space in the Whole Foods®-anchored shopping center currently under construction and will be one of the first in the nation to feature drive-thru service.

“We are proud Potbelly chose Lake Pointe Town Center to introduce itself to the Sugar Land community,” said Frankel.  “I think the upscale, yet quick and casual atmosphere will be a big hit for both the residents and professionals who live and work in the area.”

Potbelly boasts an additional five Houston-area locations. It also has locations in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. For more information visit the company’s Web site at
