How Cosi came to be: one guy reminded another guy that he couldn't find a decent sandwich in Paris.
"In order to find your passion, sometimes you have to create it. For me, it happened to be the quest for the perfect sandwich."
– Drew Harre, founder of the original Cosi
54 Rue de Seine, Paris
It ultimately took three of the greatest cities in the world to make the perfect sandwich. From a Roman flatbread recipe to the original Cosi on the Left Bank of Paris to our start in New York City, our origins and our passion span the world. We look forward to new chapters - and new cities and countries - to add to our lore.
