Hoping people will drop by for free Web access and stay for a sandwich, Schlotzsky’s Deli is offering no-cost wireless access at some of its eateries.

The company on Saturday will officially launch its Schlotzsky’s Deli Cool Cloud network, which will allow people with Wi-Fi wireless setups on their computers or handhelds to get online for free. Wi-Fi, also known as 802.11b, is a technology that allows the creation of wireless networks with a radius of around 300 feet.

“Free Internet access just makes sense to us,” said John Wooley, Schlotzsky’s CEO. “Now that we have the signal in our restaurants, we’d like to share it with the neighborhood and communities where we operate.”
