Togo’s Sandwiches has announced the signing of six agreements with single and multi-unit developers that would bring 11 new locations to California. The agreements are for restaurants in Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County and Contra Costa County.
Mark and Linda Moran, Karen Tang and Robert Dorian are new franchisees for the Orange County and Los Angeles County areas and are planning restaurants in San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Rancho Santa Margarita, Pasadena and the San Fernando Valley.
After opening his first Togo’s on Wilshire Boulevard, longtime franchisee Fernando Santos also has signed an agreement to open his second location in downtown Los Angeles. He is among a group of existing franchisees signing agreements to open more restaurants, after experiencing success in the Togo’s franchise system.
“Our franchisees stand out as people who are dedicated and passionate about achieving their goals,” said Todd Peterson, vice president of franchise sales. “We believe that in these single and multi-unit franchisees we have found people who have a passion for Togo’s … more specifically, large portions, and fresh and delicious sandwiches.”
With the addition of these 11 restaurants, Togo’s will have more than 250 locations on the West Coast. The franchise expects to open 16 new units in 2011 and 25 in 2012.
