Earl of Sandwich, which reportedly has a strong following, is set to open this summer at a location currently occupied by Compass Books and Cafe. There are 17 Earl locations worldwide, including at Walt Disney World.Earl of Sandwich and Wolfgang Puck Express are two of my regular places for quick service meals in WDW's Downtown Disney. I wonder if they'll have the same menu for the one in Disneyland Resort.
Earl of Sandwich shops have ties to the creator of the sandwich — John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, who made the first food item in 1762. The 11th Earl is involved in the creation of the current restaurants. Robert Earl, chairman of Earl of Sandwich, joined with Disney to open the first location at Downtown Disney in Orlando in 2004.
