Our story

The World Needed Better Sandwiches.
So We Made Better Sandwiches.

Being sandwich obsessed isn’t easy. The bug bit us all the way back in 2006 when, as members of the University of Alberta Golden Bears, an out-of-the-way road game found us lined up against the Arizona State Sun Devils. The game didn’t go so well. The post-game sandwiches? Those went great. And that got us thinking – since basketball clearly wasn’t in our future, maybe sandwiches were.

A few years later, after finishing our degrees and beginning our careers in Edmonton, we still couldn’t get those sandwiches out of our minds. So we committed to bringing Canada better sandwiches. We spent the next year testing recipes and learning to bake fresh bread before we finally opened the first Press’d. And you know what? It turns out we weren’t the only ones in search of the perfect sandwich.

The freshest bread, the best ingredients, and the highest quality meat. We do it for the sandwiches. We do it for you.

Our vision

We have one simple rule: sandwiches.

And to everyone that says, “Hey wait a second, that’s not a rule.” We say, “To us, it is.” and “Who makes the rules about making rules anyways?”. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, sandwiches are full-stop the best food going. So every sandwich we make, we strive to make the best — and because we know a sandwich is nothing without amazing ingredients, we use amazing ingredients; we use produce grown by Canadian prairie farmers, we use bread baked from scratch, and we use recipes that are relentlessly tested and perfected. Because we believe sandwiches are more than something you eat, they’re a promise you make to your mouth.

Our bread

Every Great Sandwich Starts With Fresh Bread.
That’s Why We Start With Fresh Bread.

We wake up every morning thinking about bread. How it nobly holds our sandwiches together, keeping all those delicious ingredients in place, and never gets any of the glory. Well, we’re here to give bread some glory.

We start every day baking our bread from scratch. Because we know that fresh baked bread is just about the best thing there is, and it only gets better when you slap it on either side of a sandwich.

The only thing better than fresh bread is lots of different kinds of fresh bread. That’s why we make rye, 12-grain, whole wheat, and white bread fresh every day. It’s why we make fun stuff like jalapeño cheddar bread.

We love bread so much that we believe everyone should get to enjoy it. That’s why we bring in gluten-free bread from our friends at Kinnikinnick Foods.

It’s time to shine the spotlight on bread. It is (literally) the foundation of our sandwiches.
