TOGO’s TO DEVELOP 11 NEW WEST COAST LOCATIONS
Togo’s Sandwiches has announced the signing of six agreements with single and multi- unit developers that would bring 11 new locations to California. The agreements are for restaurants in Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County and Contra Costa County.
Mark and Linda Moran, Karen Tang and Robert Dorian are new franchisees for the Orange County and Los Angeles County areas and are planning restaurants in San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Rancho Santa Margarita, Pasadena and the San Fernando Valley.
After opening his first Togo’s on Wilshire Boulevard, longtime franchisee Fernando Santos also has signed an agreement to open his second location in downtown Los Angeles. He is among a group of existing franchisees signing agreements to open more restaurants, after experiencing success in the Togo’s franchise system.
"Our franchisees stand out as people who are dedicated and passionate about achieving their goals," said Todd Peterson, vice president of franchise sales. "We believe that in these single and multi-unit franchisees we have found people who have a passion for Togo’s ... more specifically, large portions, and fresh and delicious sandwiches."
With the addition of these 11 restaurants, Togo’s will have more than 250 locations on the West Coast. The franchise expects to open 16 new units in 2011 and 25 in 2012.
About Togo’s Eateries Inc.
Togo’s was founded in 1971 by a young college student in San Jose, California with a big appetite and a little money. He started making sandwiches the way he liked them – big, made to order and stuffed with the freshest ingredients. Soon there were lines out the door and Togo’s was well on it’s way to becoming a west coast original. Now, almost 40 years later, Togo’s still makes sandwiches the way we did back then. In addition to great sandwiches, Togo’s makes hand-tossed salads, wraps, soups and desserts.
