An emerging sandwich brand to consider is the Topz Sandwich Company. Founder Tucker Veltcamp came up with the idea to open a local sandwich shop that goes beyond the everyday fast-food restaurant. As a college student, he wanted restaurant-quality food at an affordable price. Topz Sandwich Company was established in 2015 to give Billings, Montana, with a great sandwich restaurant. After several attempts in the industry, Veltcamp established the right formula to create a successful model at Topz Sandwich Company. To set itself apart from other shops, Topz has dine-in, dirve-thru, take-out, delivery, and catering options. The brand's all-natural meats, fresh veggies, and great recipes keep customers coming back for more. Sandwiches are served with garlic pepper chips and white cheddar queso. Topz is looking to expand across the country with franchise partners with a store-front concept.
