Togo's, a San Jose, Calif.-based sandwich chain, is accelerating its growth plans for Arizona by developing 25 new restaurants in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Flagstaff, Tempe and Tucson among other metropolitan areas across the state, said Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo's Holdings, LLC
"Togo's has experienced great success in Arizona, so we're boosting our expansion plans to include additional Arizona towns," he said. "Togo's is seeking new franchisees to help fuel our expansion efforts in this great state. We bring a fantastic business opportunity as well as plenty of local jobs in real estate, construction and service industries. Our growth is great for Togo's and for Arizona."
Local residents and Togo's franchisees, Monty and Diana Coury, are set to open their second Togo's location in Maricopa County this fall with a third location early next year.
Togo's, which has experienced 11 consecutive quarters of same-store sales increases, is currently seeking qualified multi-unit franchisees who have a passion for the brand and deep connection to their community. Both new and existing Togo's franchisees will benefit from $10 million for remodels and transfers, as well as $5 million to build new restaurants in the state, Gioia said. At Togo's, 51 percent of its traditional restaurants experienced average unit sales in excess of $600,000, with 25 percent over $800,000.
