Earl of Sandwich is a restaurant franchise based in Orlando, Florida, United States. It was founded by the current Earl of Sandwich, his younger son Orlando Montagu, and businessman Robert Earl, founder of Planet Hollywood.

History[edit]

Earl of Sandwich is the brainchild of Orlando, who is the younger brother of Luke Timothy Charles Montagu, Viscount Hinchingbrooke heir to the title of Earl of Sandwich. He and his father are direct descendants of the 4th Earl of Sandwich, who popularized the sandwich in Great Britain in the 18th century.

The first restaurant was opened on March 19, 2004, located in Downtown Disney on the property of the Walt Disney World Resort outside of Orlando, Florida.[1] Earl of Sandwich has franchising plans in the United States and the United Kingdom, including the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The first Earl of Sandwich franchise opened in Sugar Land, Texas, and is owned by an investment group which includes Nolan Ryan and Roger Clemens.[2] Eleven other locations have opened since, in various states across the U.S.

The first Earl of Sandwich restaurant outside of the United States opened April 18, 2011 in London, but closed 28 February 2014 and the company is seeking new UK premises.[3] Another one has since opened in the Disney Village at Disneyland Resort Paris.
