Togo's Opens Newest Unit in Pasadena, California
Residents of Pasadena, California, now have a new go-to deli-inspired restaurant serving up big, made-to-order sandwiches stuffed with the freshest ingredients. Togo’s Eateries, Inc., a “West Coast Original” since 1971, announced the opening of its newest restaurant located at 854 E. Green St.
“I am thrilled to have opened Togo’s in Pasadena, and I am confident local residents will become big fans of the brand once they try our delicious, seriously stacked sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more,” says Togo’s franchisee Karen Tang. “At Togo’s, we are passionate about the quality food we serve and dedicated to providing guests with exceptional, one-on-one deli-style experience.”
Prior to opening her first restaurant, Tang had practiced law for 15 years before deciding to begin a new business venture. Her family’s previously owned deli business, in addition to her frequent visits during her years at UC Berkley to pick up a #9 hot pastrami sandwich, further enticed Karen’s passion for the brand.
As a resident of Pasadena, the new franchisee has future plans to open two more Togo’s locations in the Pasadena and South Pasadena areas.
At Togo’s, there is a steadfast commitment to using only the freshest, superior-quality ingredients and meats, which allows franchisees to serve food they can be proud of.
California avocados are mashed daily, and abundant quantities of lean pastrami, roast beef, turkey, and other premium meats, as well as Artisan bread, set the brand apart from other sandwich shops.
Recently, Togo’s marked its 40th anniversary with more than 250 locations open on the West Coast of the United States. Even with this latest opening, Togo’s is still seeking to reach 400 new locations in Pasadena and other key markets such as Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington by 2015.
