Jake's Sandwich Board opening in University City

Eimer Design's rendition of the new Jake's on 40th Street.

Four years into the business, Gary Dorfman and Sean Stein are fixing up a second location of Jake’s Sandwich Board, now at 12th and Sansom Streets.

They took space in a new retail development opening in the fall at 40th and Sansom Streets, which will put them smack in the middle of a cool quick-serve hub inhabited by vegan HipCityVeg and chicken specialist Wishbone. 

At the new University City location, the specialty will be carved-to-order brisket, pork and turkey.

Meanwhile, Eimer Design has been retained to revamp the Midtown Village original this summer with exposed brick, industrial lighting and modern design elements in an open floor plan, along with vintage photos of Philadelphia scenes.

Jake’s Sandwich Board in University City will offer delivery and will serve lunch and dinner Sunday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m.
