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. These new franchisees were looking for a great business opportunity with low start-up costs, where they could work for themselves and expand quickly. Togo's also recently unveiled a new restaurant prototype design that is drawing rave reviews from franchisees and customers alike. The new design has increased interest in Togo's Franchise opportunities.
After opening his first Togo's on Wilshire Blvd., longtime franchisee Fernando Santos has also signed an agreement to open his second location in downtown Los Angeles.

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 its way to becoming a west coast original. Now, 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.
