In 1994, when Michael J. Stimola decided to open a small coffee and sandwich shop he wanted its name to reflect the two most important women in his life – his wife Sandy and his mom Ellajane. The first Sandella’s restaurant opened in Redding, Connecticut and offered upscale sandwiches on baguettes and artisan breads. Flatbread was introduced in 1996 which received great response by all the centuries – old Middle Eastern bread was far healthier with no fat and considerably lower calories than tortillas. The flatbread was so favored by the customers than they decide to drop all the other artisan breads and only offer sandwiches on their authentic brick oven baked flatbread.
Today Sandella’s has grown to be the largest and fastest growing flatbread concept in the world offering delicious wraps, paninis, quesadillas, grilled flatbreads, salads, rice bowls and more.
