SAN JOSE, CA - (Marketwired - Aug 31, 2015) - Togo's showed itself once again as a thriving sandwich franchise, achieving five years of same-store sales growth. The sandwich chain locations throughout the western United States also have an average revenue typically higher than that of other well-known sandwich franchise systems.
"Togo's serves big meaty sandwiches, uses quality ingredients, and provides one-on-one deli-style service," said CEO Tony Gioia. "The combination creates a unique guest experience that has helped Togo's develop a loyal fan base, and it also aligns with diners' growing preference for higher-quality food and customized meals."
For more than 44 years, Togo's has been serving big, made-to-order sandwiches stuffed with fresh ingredients. The sandwich franchise also was recently named to the Nation's Restaurant News annual list of Consumer Picks, which measures how much customers love a brand. Togo's has more than 300 locations open or under development throughout the West.
Togo's one-on-one service provides a friendly atmosphere where employees interact with customers and provide them what they want as opposed to the assembly-line sub shops common to the market. The sandwich franchise's management team has a wealth of experience in the restaurant and franchising industries and has developed robust marketing, training, and support systems that reflect the chain's commitment to franchisees and to growing the brand.
The iconic California brand is now growing in other western states, including Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado. Single-unit franchise opportunities are plentiful in California, and multi-unit opportunities are strong in surrounding states.
Togo's is part of a huge and fast-growing segment of the food industry. Sandwich shop franchises generated $22.8 billion in sales in 2014, according to IBISWorld research, and that number continues to climb.
"The sandwich industry continues to be popular among consumers," Gioia said. "Sandwiches are in demand because people enjoy choosing the type of bread and ingredients, and our options include salads and salad wraps for those seeking healthier meals. Along with their sandwich they get that personalized, one-on-one service."

Togo's was founded in 1971 by a young college student with a large appetite and little money looking to make sandwiches the way he liked them — big, fresh and meaty.
