"At Togo's we are committed to excellence and the community. I opened my first location fresh out of college, and the first thing I learned was to open a store in your home town, as it's important to know your community and connect with local organizations. Community involvement and interacting with guests, while giving them exceptional one–on–one service, is essential in creating that homegrown touch and taking your restaurant to the next level."
