Primanti Bros. Giving Away Free Sandwiches in Indiana for Grand Opening

IUP students and others in Indiana County could be eating on the house, as Primanti Brothers offered free sandwiches for a year to its first 100 customers at its grand opening of its new location in Indiana on March 20.

The ribbon-cutting event started at 10 a.m., at 1540 Oakland Ave., part of its continued growth has been evident in recent expansions for the Pittsburgh-based chain. The event included games, a DJ and prizes.

“Most businesses don’t open their doors and then immediately give away the house to start their first day,” said Adam Golomb, CEO, Primanti Bros. “But, we’ve never really been one to stick to the rules. And, we’ve been focused on coming to Indiana for years – so there’s no better way to celebrate.”

Primanti Bros. has more than 40 locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, with a new lease for a second store in Morgantown announced this week as well, which will be its 43rd to open, according to its website.

Primanti Bros., founded in the Strip District in 1933, touts its “almost famous” tagline for its sandwiches known for being topped with french fries and house-made coleslaw.
