The Chicago-based sandwich chain Potbelly — which appears to be somewhat of an institution in the Windy City — has sights set on its first Portland-area location. A tipster notes that Potbelly's official website is sounding the call for Portland-area general managers (in the 97204 zip code — aka downtown PDX).
Potbelly, which has 200 locations nationally, recently branched out to the Pacific Northwest, opening its first three locations in Seattle all within the past 12 months. (Eater Seattle notes that the spot has inspired either "love it" or "really, really hate it" reviews, with Weekly food critic Hanna Raskin noting that the toasted bread, at least, is "exceptionally good by chain-restaurant standards.")
