About Sandwich Chefs

Sandwich Chefs is growing fast. We’re the leading deli and carvery franchise in Australia and have a passion for serving high quality sandwiches and roasts to our customers. We’re looking for passionate people to join our franchise. Our roasts are slowed cooked and delicious. Our sandwiches are enjoyed by thousands every single week.

This is the beginning of a true story that formed a delicious partnership, driven by the desire to make the kind of sandwiches that people can’t make at home. After lots of question s and even more taste tests, they opened the first of many Sandwich Chefs stores.The trio don’t always agree on how to do things, except for when it comes to making sandwiches properly. This includes having fresh local produce delivered daily, sourcing artisan bread and making as much as possible from scratch, including 14 hour slow-roasted beef and crackling pork.Every chef at every Sandwich Chefs® store lovingly makes each meal to order – just the way the customer likes it. With the help of their loyal customers, it took great mates to restore Australia’s faith in the humble sandwich.
