When Which Wich Superior Sandwiches closed down unexpectedly several months ago, many patrons were left wondering what happened.

The otherwise popular sandwich store at 2728 W. 75th St. was always busy. The answer is that new ownership is gearing up to reopen Which Wich on June 30.

With amenities like Starbucks and Kicks Chicken next door, xSport Fitness and the recently opened Wal-mart close by, the sandwich spot is sure to attract new patrons, and welcomes returning customers, says Chris Minor, one of the owners.

Minor, who also owns Acceleration Sports of Naperville, wanted to get into the sandwich market, and found that Which Wich offers the right mix of healthy yet fast food options he as an athlete can promote with good conscience.

“It is a feel-good outlook and customers like the concept,” says Minor of the franchise that has more than 280 locations and is looking to open another 80 in the U.S. this year.

Customers walk in and grab a brown paper bag that has pre-printed options for sandwiches on them. They then pick and choose the meats, cheeses and condiments they’d like and mark those on the bag. Customers finish up with writing their name, or any fun name, on the bag and pay. When the sandwich is ready, the name is called up.

“It’s just fun,” Minor chuckles.

Vegetarian options are also available and quite popular.

“We have over 52 sandwich options,” he adds. .

Plenty of seating inside as well as a few outdoor tables offer plenty of fun.

Other items on the menu include lettuce wraps and bowls.

“Our milkshakes are phenomenal,” Minor says.

Looking to attract an active lunch crowd and put more attention on the catering aspect of the shop, Minor and the group of owners also are working on offering delivery in the near future.

Which Wich is hiring. Interested applicants can drop off their resumes or email chrisminor15@gmail.com.

Multimedia marketing

Drawing from an extensive background in the media and multimedia industry, Mike Noonan, of Naperville, opened Chicagoland Multimedia last fall. It offers a multitude of strategies and applications to help small-to-mid-sized companies grow.

“From audio and video productions showcasing businesses and new products, to building websites, producing commercials and more, we do whatever it takes to help you reach, and touch, more people around the clock,” says Noonan of his Lisle-based business.

“Our team has been called the ‘ultimate small business resource,’” Noonan says. “We like that slogan!”

Noonan has experience with high-profile entertainers such as Donny Osmond and radio stations Newsradio 780 WBBM and 97.9 The Loop. He believes that his exposure and behind-the-scenes know-how of digital marketing platforms would greatly benefit smaller businesses.

“We’re the small business owner’s best friends, so we keep project and retainer rates affordable,” Noonan says.

Although Chicagoland Multimedia already consists of a full creative team, Noonan says they are always looking for new talent and accept applications.
