From that original store on Pearl Street, Snarf's grew into a chain of sixteen locations scattered between Colorado, St. Louis and Chicago, and Seidel owns all but two in St. Louis, which belong to his sister and brother-in-law, Jodi and Maty Aronson. But there are plans in the works to not only add locations to the current markets, but expand into Texas. "The company expects to see Snarf's reach fifty stores nationwide by 2018," says LaCroix.
Although there are no plans for menu changes -- aside from the normal rotation of seasonal items -- Snarf's is entertaining the idea of adding bars and lounges like the one at the University of Denver location to new stores "where appropriate," LaCroix says.
And one of those bars could be just the spot for Lone Star customers to learn to appreciate Snarf's spicy carrot, celery and pepper giardiniera packed into a pastrami & Swiss or artichoke, feta and provolone sub with a warm, toasted baguette bun.
Keep on snarfing.
