Earl of Sandwich is a restaurant franchise based in Orlando, Florida, United States. It was founded by The Rt Hon. The 11th Earl of Sandwich, his younger son John Montagu, and businessman Robert Earl, founder of Planet Hollywood.

History[edit]

Earl of Sandwich is the brainchild of The Hon. Orlando Montagu, who is the younger son of The 11th Earl of Sandwich. He and his father are direct descendants of The 4th Earl of Sandwich, who popularised the sandwich in Great Britain and Ireland in the 18th century.

The first restaurant was opened on March 19, 2004, located in Disney Springs 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] Additional locations have opened since, in various states across the U.S..

The first Earl of Sandwich restaurant outside of the United States opened on April 18, 2011, in London, but closed on 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.
