REFILE-Shares of sandwich chain Potbelly more than double in debut
Oct 4 (Reuters) - Shares of sandwich chain Potbelly Corp more than doubled in their debut on Friday, valuing the seller of toasted sandwiches, salads, shakes and cookies at about $862 million.
The restaurant chain, whose largest shareholder is Starbucks Corp Chief Executive Howard Schultz, raised about $105 million after pricing its offering of 7.5 million shares at $14 per share, just above its expected price range.
The shares traded on Friday as high as $31.98.
