(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Deadpan Sandwich's stall is shown in the Woodbine Food Hall on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022.

A sandwich shop in Woodbine Food Hall that announced it was closing may not be closing after all, to the delight of its many supporters.

Deadpan Sandwich posted on Instagram on Friday that it has been “blown away” by the “outpouring of love and support” since announcing in October that its last day of business would be Nov. 11.

In Friday’s post, Deadpan confirmed that it would be staying open, and that it was currently working with its management team and Woodbine Food Hall to make that happen.

“Your unwavering support has been instrumental in this decision and we sincerely thank you for showing up for us,” the post continued.

Laurie Cornia, the general manager of Woodbine at 545 W. 700 South in Salt Lake City’s Granary District, said Friday that they weren’t looking to fill Deadpan’s spot in the food hall because “we’re very hopeful that we can help them with what they’re concerned about.”

Deadpan Sandwich also said on Instagram that they would be closed this week to “regroup, reset and restock,” and that they plan to “reopen fully” on Tuesday, Nov. 21.

In other Woodbine news, Cornia confirmed that management is “actively talking to new concepts” to fill the spot once occupied by vegan restaurant Vuture Food, which departed abruptly Nov. 3. Cornia also said that Woodbine has welcomed a new occupant as of last weekend: Korean fried chicken seller Bok Bok. This is Bok Bok’s second location; the first is in Provo.
