Values & History

A series of bedtime stories that were told by a father to his 10 children as the Adventures of Erbert & Gerbert Herbert. He created these stories to teach his children about science, history, adventure, and being a good friend.

One of those children grew up to become our founder. In tribute to his father, his family, and those stories, he named his sandwich shop Erbert & Gerbert's and then created all of the sandwiches on the menu to honor the characters in the stories.

The first location opened in 1988 in the fine, fine town of Eau Claire, WI, and has since grown to over 100 locations across 12 states. Every Erbert & Gerbert's is a sandwich shop dedicated to serving better, more flavorful sandwiches than anyone else in the universe.

Industry Performance

Market Demand & Advantage

The sandwich industry is extremely assimilated: the same ingredients on the same loaves of bread with the same sides. This isn't the case with Erbert and Gerbert's. We believe in BOLD and adventurous sandwiches and soups. Differentiating the brand in this way has carved out space for us to connect with our consumers in ways the rest of the industry can't.

We're big on the community at Erbert and Gerbert's, and that means a few different things. We cultivate a community centered on our franchise owners, with direct, mutually beneficial teamwork between the corporate team and franchisees.

Training & Support

We make owning a restaurant easy with our proven systems and operations. We provide education and assistance throughout the entire franchise process that includes: Finance Consultation, Site Selection, Construction, Training, Grand Opening, Marketing, Ongoing Operational Support and Advertising Materials.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

We're looking for someone who:

  • Has the ambition and drive to succeed
  • Is looking to be a part of the community
  • Shares our values
  • Loves adventurous sandwiches
