Primanti Bros. Set To Open On Friday

The day that yinz have been patiently waiting for is finally coming. Primanti Bros. is set to open in downtown State College on Friday, Jan. 23, according to employees of the chain’s new location at 130 Hiester St. A soft opening for invitees will be held on Thursday.

The Pittsburgh-based sandwich shop, founded way back in 1933, has taken over the space formerly owned by Gingerbread Man. The chain refers to its gargantuan sandwiches as a “Pittsburgh institution.” Whether you want turkey, roast beef, or salami, Primanti Bros. will serve it up on soft Italian bread with cole slaw and the famous Primanti french fries.

The company obtained the liquor license previously owned by G-Man, so students will have another downtown drinking option in the near future. Primanti Bros. has not released its State College hours, but expect them to be similar to some of its Pittsburgh locations, which stay open to midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends.

The countdown for all you Pittsburgh natives sits at five days. When the second week of classes comes to an end, you can stop by Primanti Bros. for a cold beer, an Almost Famous sandwich, and if you’re feeling crazy, pizza and wings too.

We’ll keep you posted on any promotional deals the new shop may have and its official hours when they’re announced.
