Lou's Too Moving From Trappe to Collegeville

The famed sandwich shop is moving down Main Street, into the vacant "Lunch Box on Main" storefront.

"The Zep that launched a thousand ships" - is Lou's Too the next Helen of Troy?

The sister sandwich shop to Lou's in Norristown is moving out of its digs at 732 W. Main Street in Trappe to the borough next door.

The restaurant will re-open at the old Lunch Box on Main, located at 454 E Main Street in Collegeville.

The restaurant, known for bringing the Zep over the Perkiomen Creek, will have an expanded seating section in the new venue.

The move, reported to Collegeville Borough Council by Collegeville Economic Development Corporation Manager Rachael Morrison at an Oct. 3 meeting, should be completed by December, and the new Lou's will be up and running.

Patch will have more to report on this, but wanted to get you the initial information - what do you think about the move?

Wish they served their sandwiches on Conshohocken bread like they do in Norristown. Such a difference!

The bread is key, I agree Gina!! I've been lucky enough to enjoy a Lou's zep for 30+ years. My family & I used to take zeps to the Eagles game every Sunday from their Norristown shop. Now I live closer to Trappe but prefer the Norristown zep!! It's the BREAD!!! PLEASE USE THE SAME BAKERY LOU!!

I agree! The bread is absolutely the key to a perfect sandwich. Was eating at a restaurant in Lansdale last night, and it didn't quite taste the same. Turns out that the restaurant is now using a local bakery instead of Conshohocken, from what I was told when I asked the waitress. Thinking about taking rides down to Norristown to get that delicious zep on a conshy roll. I live in Pottstown and if Lous Too switches, it will save me a ton of gas!

I ate at the original Lou's on East Main Street in Norristown, PA. 60 years ago, and my wife and I have eaten at Lou's too ever since they opened up in Trapp every Friday night for dinner. The sandwiches are fabulous, the waitresses are very pretty, and the owner Mickey is a great host. If you do go there to eat on my recommendation tell Mickey or his lovely wife know that the juggler sent you. Al Angello

Hi Al, I have eaten at both also, and have done some work for Mickey. The rumor of them moving to Collegeville is a little premature from what I was told yesterday. Rachael should have waited to have her FACTS in order before she opened her mouth to council in Collegeville. This seems to be the norm for people in Collegeville.Either way they will still be close by. I did hear that the origanal Lou's in Norristown may be closing, but I am not positive about that.
