The Sandella's Story

In 1994 when Michael J. Stimola decided to open a small coffee and sandwich shop, he wanted its name to reflect the two most important women in his life - his wife, Sandy and his mum, Ellajane. The first Sandella's restaurant opened in the United States in Connecticut that year.  Sandella's products stood out as healthy options that were fresh, fast and delicious.

As a result of this success, Sandella's expanded steadily and has grown to be the largest and fastest growing flatbread concept in the world. Operating in approximately 100 university campuses, corporate offices, hospitals and airports in the United States and internationally with another 30 locations in Saudi Arabia, Malta, Turkey and Dubai.



Today, with over 25 years of experience and countless years of perfecting our recipes, Sandella's Express Cafe is launching into Australia, offering delicious Burgers, Pizzas, Sandwiches and Salads.

 Over the past year, we've worked hard to adapt and tailor our American menu to the Australian Market whilst also providing Aussies with some American inspired food combinations.  We pride ourselves by using premium quality, health-conscious food that is 95% locally sourced and great tasting. 

We hope you can join us on our journey as we launch into Australia.
