New owners take over Sangwych shop in downtown Saratoga: Free delivery, now accepting Skidmore cards

Posted by Julia Leef

On Aug. 1, John Meyer, Jon Malm and Bobby Holt purchased Sangwych, the specialty shop located at 68 Putnam St. in downtown Saratoga Springs, from previous owner Ron Farber. In addition to free delivery, the shop is now accepting Skidmore student ID cards as payment.

According to its website, Sangwych provides "Brooklynese-style sangwyches" soups and salads. It also offers catering services for any event.

"Myself and Jon Malm have been with Sangwych since the beginning," said Meyer in a recent press release, "so we know how loyal our customers are and the great reputation Sangwych has, so we won't deviate from that base. But with the addition of Bobby and his experience as head chef at Gaffney's and Hattie's we will add to the already extensive menu with more daily specials, and, in the fall, we will be adding chicken wings and more homemade soups to the daily menu."

"I'm excited to be part of a successful business and to help it grow," Holt said in the same press release. "It's a new challenge for me with my own business and one that I believe has plenty of room for growth. We are a Brooklyn-style sandwich shop and we get weekly deliveries straight from NYC, like our fresh mozzarella, provolone and cannolis, etc. That sets us apart from the rest and we pride ourselves on building on the NYC reputation as the best sandwich shops in the world."

Sangwych hosts a menu of specialty sandwiches and subs, including award-winning Tuna Nachos, shrimp PO Boys, salads and standards. It also offers cannolis, homemade chocolate cookies and a variety of soft drinks.

Sangwych will be adding a daily burger special and at least two daily homemade soups. According to Malm, wings with specials will be available for Sunday and Monday night football.

The new owners are also looking to increase the catering side of their business. "At present, we do a significant amount of business with medical reps where we cater lunch for them when they put on a presentation at local doctors offices," Holt said. "We would like to do more of those, and we are also adding delivery service for local businesses and Skidmore, whether it's one sandwich or 20."

Sangwych is open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information visit www.sangwych.com or call (518) 580-9800.
