Why Bay Boy?
Because Julian and Jake were hungry. Julian had a craving: sandwiches from the Bay Area, where he grew up. Sandwiches on Dutch Crunch bread. Never heard of it? Yeah, no one else in Kansas City had either. Also a filmmaker, Julian knows the best things are made collaboratively. “With me, it can only get me-sized,” he said. So he called Jake, his friend of over two decades (and conveniently, a dedicated, passionate cook). They recreated sauces and smoked meats, pulling together fresh, quality ingredients, crafting flavors greater than the sum of their parts. What started as a weekly pop-up grew into the neighborhood sandwich shop.
To make the most unique sandwich you’ve ever had. To learn your name. To keep collaborating and creating, making something bigger than themselves.
Our specialty is the sandwiches all on Fresh baked Dutch Crunch bread, fresh vegetables, quality meats and cheeses, and signature and flavorful sauces.
Established in 2015.
We are a bay area inspired sandwich shop with a Kansas City twist that is located in the West Plaza neighborhood. We offer catering as well. We started as a pop-up and glad to have our shop, we want to add a food truck sometime in the near future.
Meet the Business Owners
Julian is the owner-operator along with his business partner, Jake. Julian was born in San Francisco which is where he got introduced to the Dutch Crunch Bread and taste for delicious sandwiches. Bay Boy was born because Julian was hungry for those signature sandwiches from the Bay, but there was no where in KC to get one. Boom. Bay Boy Specialty Sandwiches now exists because of that hunger.
