The first Which Wich restaurant in Lafayette is set to open Oct. 27, next to the new Whole Foods on Ambassador Caffery Parkway.

This will be the fourth Which Wich restaurant in the state for local franchisee Guy Harper. Harper opened the first Which Wich in Baton Rouge in 2011 and has since added locations in Hammond and Covington.

Connie Alires, director of franchise development for the Dallas-based chain, said plans are in the works to add another 12-15 Which Wich restaurants in south Louisiana over the next three to five years. A location near the LSU campus is being eyed, along with restaurants in New Orleans, Slidell and Houma. “We think we could have seven to 10 locations in the greater New Orleans area,” Alires said. “People in Louisiana love the brand.”

Which Wich specializes in offering a variety of sandwiches that customers order by writing on brown paper bags. Up to 60 additional toppings are available, including caramelized onions, a variety of cheeses and vegetables.
