Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli Franchise
Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli is a franchise for a deli that serves salads, sandwiches, ice cream, and smoothies.
It was founded in 1994 and started in 2004. It was founded by Heidi and Steve Naples. Their first location was opened in 1994 and it expanded quickly in Colorado, to having four corporately owned restaurants. Their first franchise was sold in December of 2004.
Their concept was to provide affordable sandwiches, soups, wraps, assorted desserts, and smoothies.

They have nine varieties for their breads and they make it daily from scratch using neither additives nor preservatives. As they grew, their menu also expanded to having 24 choices of cold sandwiches, 15 hot sandwiches, to smoothies, and ice creams.
