Togo’s is a Sandwich Shop Franchise Done Right
In the small business landscape, a sub shop franchise is one of the best-bet investments an entrepreneur can make, and Togo’s — the original West Coast sandwich franchise — is a cut above the rest.
Sandwiches have never been more popular. According to IBISWorld, the sub sandwich franchise industry grossed $22 billion in revenue in 2015, and the marketing research firm also reports that the trend toward healthier food kept the industry thriving during the Great Recession of 2008, when many other franchise businesses were shutting their doors.
The popularity of sandwiches as the premier choice for the American consumer cannot be understated. According to US Foods, a leading food distribution company that also analyzes American eating trends, Americans are eating about 300 million sandwiches every single day. That statistic makes a strong case for not only the popularity of sandwiches, but also for the need for sub shop franchise businesses in the market.
The quality of our sandwiches takes us above and beyond our competitors
Of course, as in every market with opportunities this strong, any new sandwich shop franchise will be met with competition. Togo’s sets itself apart for consumers by offering big, fresh, meaty sandwiches and one-on-one service — both of which guests love.
A typical Togo’s sandwich is stuffed with meats and cheeses, which gives our sandwiches a high protein content that quells appetites. The generous serving makes our sandwiches big, juicy, and satisfying. That our customers can choose from an array of bread, meat and vegetable options keeps them coming back, as every Togo’s sandwich is perfectly made to suit the individual’s desire for the perfect sandwich.
“We have had a tradition of providing high-quality sandwiches, salads, soups, and wraps to our loyal guests for 40 years,” says CEO Tony Gioia. “Togo’s has become a premier brand throughout the western states. Our franchisees are committed to delivering the ultimate sandwich experience to our guests, and we believe this ultimate experience starts with selecting the right people to become franchisees.”
The quality of our sandwiches has made Togo’s the preferred sub shop franchise for consumers. The quality of our ingredients and the flavor they impart are some of the reasons guests are so picky about getting their sandwiches at Togo’s. They know they’ll be eating something special, and they’re willing to pay a little more for that quality.
We’re rapidly expanding across the country
We’re legendary in California and growing rapidly in several western states, including Idaho, Utah, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada. Franchise opportunities are available in each of these states, as well as in California. Togo’s has the potential to become the premium, dominant sandwich company in the West because we are true to our foundation — great food served with passion, and big, fresh, meaty sandwiches served every day.
We now have nearly 300 sandwich franchises in the West. As a result of our expansion, we are quickly becoming highly competitive against other brands, such as the Subway franchise and the Jimmy John’s franchise, in markets across the country.
“There is a lot of sandwich competition out there, but there aren’t many that do it like Togo’s,” Tony says. “Lots of chains are imitating each other, but nobody does big, fresh, meaty sandwiches and one-on-one service like Togo’s.”
