Miller’s Famous Sandwiches eyes expansion in Connecticut


Miller’s Famous Sandwichesthe iconic Rhode Island-based franchise, known for its signature Roast Beef and variety of other sandwich options, is eyeing Connecticut for its next wave of expansion.

Although franchise agreements have yet to be signed, Miller’s Famous Sandwiches plans to open 2-3 new restaurants in each of four target markets, including Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and Stamford. The announcement of the expansion is part of the two-unit chain’s drive to expand its footprint on the east coast into an area that stretches northeast to Florida.

Each restaurant will occupy approximately 1,500 to 2,200 square feet and will employ 20 to 25 full-time and part-time employees.

“Happy and hungry diners have been filling up on Miller’s Famous Sandwiches for half a century. Customers who remember enjoying Miller’s signature roast beef sandwiches as kids are now bringing their children to experience the magic,” said Miller President Gwendolyn Graham. “People love Miller’s and we are excited to bring our unique products and services to customers in other communities across the country.

The first Miller’s restaurant opened in East Providence, Rhode Island in 1972. Since then, the brand has become a local icon on the restaurant scene, offering one of the best authentic roast beef sandwiches on the market. The roast beef is slow roasted every night, overnight, resulting in the most tender and flavorful sandwiches. Other mouthwatering sandwich options include: Pastrami, French Dip, Reubens, Thanksgiving (Turkey), Chicken, Lobster, BBQ Pulled Pork, Ham, Corned Beef and New England Style Lobster Roll.

Remarkably, Miller’s cooks 12,000 pounds (that’s 6 TONS!) of their slow roast roast beef every month and sells over 8,000 sandwiches every week.

Freshly made sides include: crinkle cut fries, onion rings, baked beans, homemade coleslaw, clam strips, and more.

As for the design of the restaurant? Each Miller location is based on the look and feel of the original restaurant that opened half a century ago. Details like community tables, swivel stools, and warm wood tones are just a few of the ways Miller recreates that atmosphere. An open kitchen concept allows customers to watch their food being made, while giving them a better understanding of the craftsmanship, quality, freshness and love that go into Miller products.

“At Miller, we understand that in today’s fast-paced world, it’s sometimes nice to take a step back and get back to basics,” says Graham. “Our home-cooked menu options, freshly prepared meals, and cozy dining atmosphere consistently lead guests to get that nostalgic feeling that comes with being ‘home’.”

Including franchise fees of $40,000, the initial investment range for a Miller’s restaurant is between $396,000 and $818,000.
