Delaware-based Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop has opened its third San Diego County location. It is at 6011 El Cajon Blvd., at College Avenue near San Diego State University, according to a statement.

The company opened restaurants last year in Mission Valley and San Marcos. The chain was launched in 1976 and made its Southern California debut in 2011, touting made-to-order sandwiches made with fresh meats cooked on the premises.

Company officials have said Capriotti’s plans to have about 20 San Diego County eateries open within the next five years.
