Boulder-based sandwich shop to come to DU neighborhood

Snarf’s, a Boulder-based sandwich shop, plans to open near the DU campus on East Evans Avenue and South Williams Street by early 2012.

The sandwich maker will operate out of the location at 1729 E. Evans Ave. that formerly housed Trompeau Bakery, which moved to a larger location on the intersection of Broadway and East Bates Avenue in Englewood, Colo.

“We’ve been looking at it for some time,” says Jim Siedel, Snarf’s owner and founder. “It’s a great neighborhood and it’s what the community needs.”

The menu will consist of traditional toasted sandwiches such as a BLT, an Italian sandwich and a vegetarian sub. It also will serve specialty sandwiches such as a smoked brisket with Swiss cheese, a rotisserie chicken with cheese and an artichoke feta with provolone. Siedel says he hopes Denver will approve a liquor license by the time the shop opens.

Siedel says the shop will be open late nights for students who need to fulfill their midnight munchies, and also open for breakfast.

Snarf’s has received many awards including Boulder Weekly‘s Best of Boulder, MetroMix Denver‘s Best of Denver and the Riverfront Times‘ Best of St. Louis. The shop also has an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars from websites such as UrbanSpoon and Yelp.

Siedel took the name for his business from his college nickname, which was “Snarf.” Snarf’s first location opened on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colo., and has grown from one store in 1996 to nine stores in the Midwest and Colorado.
