Epic Sammich Co., the latest idea from chefs Dustin Staggers and Eric Morris, which replaced their first concept, Rumplings, at Highland Ave., might be the right vehicle to expand into a local chain, according to recent reports.

The immediate success of their premium sandwich shop has led to thoughts of opening other branches. The locations mentioned include Lexington, Bowling Green, Cincinnati and Dayton. All have one or more colleges or universities, which are the natural clientele base for the Epic Sammich concept.
