The Carving Board Sandwiches, a fast-casual restaurant that provides comfort food sandwiches of the highest quality, has announced plans to bring over 20 franchise locations to the San Francisco Bay area over the next five years. With thriving corporate locations in West Los Angeles, Burbank, Hollywood, and Tarzana all grossing more than $1 million in sales at each location, the brand looks to continue momentum by expanding into Northern California partnering with local entrepreneurs.

“Since our founding in 2012, we have built the infrastructure to grow through the franchise model and we’re confident we’ll continue to flourish throughout California,” says David Adir, co-founder and CEO. “We’re seeking franchisees who appreciate the originality of our concept and are passionate about the restaurant industry in order to elevate our brand to new heights.”

Best known for putting classic comfort food meals in between bread in sandwich form, The Carving Board creates a niche in the $21 billion sandwich and sub store industry. With more than 50 unique sandwich creations on its menu – including the famous Spaghetti and Meatballwich – the majority of items are created in-house using only the freshest ingredients, appealing to consumers across the nation who are seeking an elevated dining experience.

With additional corporate locations slated to open in downtown Los Angeles, South Bay, Koreatown, and Beverly Hills, The Carving Board is targeting strategic franchise growth throughout San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose.

“The Carving Board is truly a unique brand—it thrives in high-density major metropolitan areas and we want as many people as we can to experience the fresh products we have to offer,” added Adir. “We are excited to continue our expansion in our home state and bring fresh ingredients and innovative sandwiches to our local communities.”

Receiving high praise from USA Today, The Food Network, and Eater among others, The Carving Board is known for some of the most unique, mouthwatering sandwich creations. Popular menu items include The Bentley—a take on a traditional steak dinner featuring a quarter pound of seasoned filet mignon served on ciabatta bread, covered with bacon mayonnaise, blue cheese, grilled onion, and fresh spinach.

The Carving Board has become the bold answer to the classic sandwich joint. Ushering in a fresh era of industrial décor, today’s music, and hand selected ingredients, the brand is setting the new sandwich standard. Guests are sure to feel a sense of comfort while being offered a better dining experience with attention to detail in its food, décor, and service.
