Great Wraps Franchise
Great Wraps is a franchise for a sandwich shop. It was founded in 1974 and started franchising in 1983.
It was founded by Mark Kaplan who is the current Chairman and Bob Solomon who is the current President of the company. They wanted to provide adventurous people with a sandwich that that would dazzle their taste buds. They have designed sandwiches that are unique and different from what is being served in fast food chains. They found the difference that they were looking for in Great Wraps.
They had customers saying that they started craving for their sandwich and that was when they started having loyal customers that helped them get to where they are now. They said that they have revolutionized the “new American sandwich” in American quick serve shops. Since then they have created several lines of sandwiches that are different from the rest. They even give the customers an option to create their own sandwiches and have exactly and only what they want in one sandwich. They now have 68 locations in the United States and one location that is company owned.
