Cheba Hut Toasted Subs has received the green light from the state of Florida to offer franchise opportunities to residents of the state. The company plans to have the first store open by the end of first quarter 2009. Later this summer, Cheba Hut’s franchise development team will be traveling to Florida to conduct franchise seminars in select markets. “Our plan is to develop 18-22 Cheba Hut locations throughout the state over the next 5-6 years with a small group of multi unit franchisees” said Matt Trethewey, Cheba Hut’s newly appointed Chief Operating Officer. “We have been receiving a significant increase in interest there for the last year. With our tropical theme and great, one of a kind recipes, our brand is a perfect fit for the Florida lifestyle. It was time to make this happen.”
