PB and Jellies® New York Deli is a Colorado Springs original, and was established in the Summer of 2011 with humble beginnings in downtown Colorado Springs. As a Graduate of the Air Force Academy Class of 1991, Art Romero has run a financial – related business since 2004, and his travels of have taken him to Wall Street on many occasions. On one particular trip to New York, he decided to visit a similar peanut butter eatery in Greenwich Village along with his two teenage daughters. Filled with a variety of creamy peanut butters, New York deli choices and a fun atmosphere, the three of them decided that it was time to bring that atmosphere to downtown Colorado Springs in what was the original location on Kiowa Street. One year later, PB and Jellies Express was opened around the corner on Tejon St, and in January of 2014, four Graduates from the Air Force Academy invested to have the new location open in the food court at the Chapel Hills Mall so that they could be closer to the Academy community. These Graduates include Joe Matchette ('89) and family, Jim McDonald ('91) and family, Bill Wosilius ('91) and family and the Romero family.
Not only does PB and Jellies® grind their peanuts to create a variety of creamy peanut butters right there in the restaurant, but they also make their own recipes of a stock of unique jam creations. Cherry jalapeno, carrot cake, caramelized garlic onion, and of course, amazing strawberry and peach pie jams are only a small sampling of the more than 15 varieties of Peanut Butter and Jam creations you can experience at the FREE TASTING they provide at their location in the Chapel Hills Mall.. Every ingredient in their jams are made from sweet fruits, with never any preservatives included. The same goes for their peanut butters, their breads, and the high quality meats they use in the restaurant. If you visit, a good start would be to enjoy their “Elvis” peanut butter creation, filled with freshly-made creamy peanut butter, hot and crisp bacon, bananas, honey, and completed with a crunchy array of peanuts to bring all the yummy flavors together with a final, satisfying and delightful crunch.
However, PB and Jellies® doesn't end with peanut butter. If you enjoy high quality, and very large NY style deli sandwiches, you will enjoy the NY deli side of PB and Jellies®. They use only high quality Boar’s Head brand meat products in their sandwiches, including their very popular Reuben piled high with steamed pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and a little twist of goodness they like to keep secret that makes their Reuben, in the words of many, “the best Reuben” they have ever had. But don’t take our word for it. The Colorado Springs Independent found it to be the BEST Reuben in all of Colorado Springs! Learn more.
And if you are an east-coaster, join us for some real New York bagels from Long Island, Sabrett hot dogs, and some good ol' Black and Whites - all of which are shipped in from New York!
In short, PB and Jellies New York Deli is where fresh made peanut butters and jams, award-winning deli sandwiches, and plentiful smiles all come together. : )
