Episode 229

Taking NY Deli Sandwiches to a new level in Melbourne with Leor Haimes & Elliot Koren from Sauls Sandwiches

Taking its inspiration from New York’s delis and diners, in mid-2020 our next guests Leor and Elliot opened their first Saul’s Sandwiches location in the south-eastern suburb, Carnegie, in Melbourne.

Since trying them for the first time in Bentleigh (their converted former cafe Time and Place) it has been one of our go-to Sandwich venues in what is fast becoming a growing segment in the Melbourne hospitality scene.

Fast forward less than two years later and they now have 3 locations with plans in place for many more, so it’s great to have the two co-founders Leor and Elliot on this week’s podcast.

In this podcast we discuss:

-How they both came into the industry and worked together.

-Why they focused on sandwiches.

-What they have learnt about each other working together as a team.

-How big they are wanting the brand will grow, and will you look to different formats.
