Togo's Eateries has awarded three California employees with $1,000 college scholarships through the Togo's Education Fund. The sandwich chain launched the academic scholarship program to help support team members continuing their education while working at Togo's. The awards were based on employee essays about their future goals and ambitions.
Recipients of the Togo's Education Fund scholarship included Melody Brown, a Sacramento-area student at both Sierra College and Epic Bible College majoring in ministerial studies; Esmeralda Mendez, a student majoring in engineering at San Jose State University; and Bianca Perez, a business major at Pasadena City College. All three students have been employees of Togo's for more than two years.
"Togo's would like to congratulate the inaugural recipients of the Togo's Education Fund on their achievements," said Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo's Holdings LLC. "Our company is devoted to giving back to the communities it serves, and this commitment extends to Togo's dedicated staff at our nearly 250 locations. These hardworking team members have contributed to Togo's fun and friendly atmosphere, and as a thank you, we want to make an investment in their future."
