A dream come true! Matt and Holly Iafeliece have always dreamed they would open a sandwich shop. With all the growth going on in north Fort Collins, 1612 North College Avenue, being just a few minutes from Old Town, became the perfect spot. Elevated Sandwiches serves up regional craft sandwiches along with a great selection of local beer and wine.
The couple has been in the restaurant scene here in Fort Collins for over 10 years. Holly enjoyed working at the popular Bent Fork, while Matt brought his extensive management experience to Locality, Door 222 Food and Drink, and the Canyon Chophouse. With his 25 years of diverse experience in the restaurant industry including fine dining and wine, Matt feels that sandwiches are his calling.
Why is it called Elevated Sandwiches? As Holly, the head of the front of house operations describes – “We are taking all of our childhood favorite sandwiches and using them as a base, but then elevating them- taking them to the next level.” Everything is made from scratch to order using the freshest ingredients. They in-house roast the turkey, pork loin, to the corned beef – they even roll their own meatballs.
Matt is head of the kitchen. At the age of 15, he ran his families pizza and sub shop in south Florida. His travel ventures eventually brought him to Boulder where he was part of the beginning of Illegal Pete’s in 1995. Having traveled and lived all over the country has helped him mold the perfect menu. Sandwiches are large, and served with delicious truffle parmesan chips or a choice of a house made salad. Cuban sandwiches from south Florida, burgers from the Cleveland area, Philly cheesesteaks made with real cheese, and The Gobbler – Thanksgiving on a sandwich are a few of the hearty sandwiches served.
Gluten free options, made from scratch soups, salads, kids meals and house baked goodies round off this carefully thought out menu. Elevated Sandwiches is open Mon-Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 9am-3pm. Happy hour is daily Mon-Fri 4-6pm. On Saturdays, along with most of their menu, you can also enjoy a great brunch with tasty options including Denver, or Corned Beef Benny’s; French toast, Breakfast Burritos smothered with house made pork green chile and more.
