Why Cheba Hut Soars ‘High’ Among Top Sandwich Franchises

Cheba Hut is experiencing growth in the $52 billion Fast Casual Industry, due, in part, to the excellence of the concept. As stated by 1851, “Cheba Hut has been escaping the norm and getting “toasted” since 1998.

Our Founder, Scott Jennings, truly wanted the experience of quick, great tasting food to harmonize with business and marijuana culture. Out of such inspiration, Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs was born. Jennings started what is the first marijuana-themed sandwich “joint” in 1998 before converting into a sub sandwich franchise model in 2001.

Take the Thai Stick Sandwich (teriyaki chicken), the Chronic (BBQ Roast Beef), or G-13 (Turkey & Roast Beef) for example. Not only do we offer an immersive, and marijuana-free, dining experience, but one which keeps customers excitedly returning.

Other menu items include Rice Krispy treats, salads, cheese bread, nachos, among other delightful munchies. Additionally, most Cheba Hut locations – a total of 21 units – offers local craft beers and some even have a full bar. This can increase unit revenues while speaking to the community the location resides in.
