Back in February, I reported on the closing of Schlotzsky's on 15th Street. In cased you missed it, you can read the article HERE

Today, I'm excited to announce that Schlotzsky's will be re-opening THIS week! And it's re-opening where it was before, at 401 15th Street East.

However, it will have a slightly new name. It will be now known at Schlotzsky's Austin Eatery. But it least it's BACK, and I'm excited about it!

The grand re-opening celebration takes place THIS Thursday, (8/9), at 10 a.m. And if you're one of the first 100 folks to buy a CinnaPack of six Cinnabon Classic cinnamon rolls, you can get free food for a year.

Free Food for a year?! I'm THERE, Baby!

Also, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Thursday, customers can get free slider sandwiches with the purchase of a medium drink.

Free Sliders with my drink?! I'm THERE again, Baby!

The new owners say that there will be some new items on the menu, too.

General Manager Jim Baker told The Tuscaloosa News, "We’re going to add a bottled beer cooler ... so you can have beer or wine with your favorite sandwiches. We’re going to do a breakfast. We’ll have some burritos, we’ll have some tacos, we’ll have our from-scratch sourdough buns here and we’ll put eggs and bacon or eggs and sausage or eggs and ham — whatever you choose.”

Looks like I know where I'll be spending this Thursday :-)
