Tim previously worked in telecommunications for 20 years before transitioning into the restaurant business where he stayed for the next 10 years. However, he had always wanted to own his own business but had never found the perfect fit, until he discovered the incredible sandwich franchise known as Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs. Tim first discovered Cheba Hut while on a ski trip with his friends in Dillon, Colorado. He loved the food and service he received at the restaurant and, upon further research, Tim learned about the restaurant’s quirky background and the strong business leadership skills of the executive team. Cheba Hut was the ideal restaurant for Tim to franchise with; the relaxed vibe, fun theme, and family-like atmosphere just sealed the deal. Tim knew that Cheba Hut would be perfect for the central Florida market, and upon his second visit to one of our sandwich franchise locations, Tim decided to open his own location in Florida.

Cheba Hut is the OG in the Marijuana-Themed Restaurant Industry

Cheba Hut is the OG in the Marijuana-Themed Restaurant Industry

cheba hut interior sub franchise

Before anyone else was even considering it, Cheba Hut was doing it. The cannabis-themed sandwich shop opened over twenty years ago, with twenty-five locations popping up since. Cheba Hut’s rebellious attitude has made it popular amongst teens and young adults, while the food quality transcends stereotypes and more conservative ideologies, making it a place where all are welcomed. The original cannabis-themed sandwich shop, Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs now has to deal with competitors that used to condemn them but are now copying them to make a quick buck.

“I have never been a fan of going mainstream, and I think a lot of people have embraced it just for profit. Some of the same people who were previously against it are now for it after seeing the profit involved, and not the common sense and freedom of choice, which should be the reason.” – Cheba Hut Founder Scott Jennings

However, Cheba Hut’s advantage above their competitors has always been the high-quality food they serve, and the exceptional customer service of the staff. In addition, there are several benefits to the now-relaxed attitude towards weed now that it is mainstream, such as marijuana-related prison sentences being commuted and weed being used as a safer alternative to alcohol. Scott says of weed when he was first starting the cannabis-themed sandwich shop:

“Back in ’98, it was a huge risk. A lot of my friends were dealing with some terrible laws that messed up their lives.”

Cheba Hut will always be a pioneer in the marijuana industry, breaking down preconceptions and negative stereotypes when it mattered most. Using the edgy theme as a statement to free speech, Scott Jennings took a huge risk and now is reaping the rewards with a loyal customer base and an ever-expanding franchise. He recommends the Acapulco Gold and the 5-0 toasted subs to new customers of the restaurant.

How Cheba Hut Plans on Opening 50 Restaurants By the End of 2021

How Cheba Hut Plans on Opening 50 Restaurants By the End of 2021

top sandwich franchise cheba hut store

Cheba Hut’s plans for growth are ambitious; fifty stores by 2021, and 200 stores by 2025. However, if our past and our present are any indications of our success, this goal is nowhere near unreachable. Cheba Hut has been growing quickly and methodically over the past few years, with twenty-five franchises awarded and fourteen locations open. There are also plans to open stores in Texas, Georgia, and California, as more cities want a taste of our famous “toasted” subs. Our “toasted” sandwich franchise is trying to gain more traction nationally and, while we are much more than just our theme, marijuana becoming more accepted every year is only helping. Fun fact: there are already thirty-three states that have some form of marijuana legalization available and we are loving riding “the green wave.” 

“We’re getting ready to push nationally,” Seth Larsen, Chief Relationship Officer, said. “We want to be smart about our growth.”

Cheba Hut differentiates itself from other sub franchises not only by its fun psychedelic theme (Acapulco Gold, Silver Haze anyone?) but also by its excellent food that is made fresh with the best ingredients, welcoming atmosphere, customer service, and interesting flavor combinations. At most locations, the sandwich franchise also has a full bar, and even live music, making it a great spot to hang out and enjoy a beer.

Cheba Hut Bringing Dank Subs to New Mexico

Cheba Hut Bringing Dank Subs to New Mexico

A second Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs franchise location was just opened in Albuquerque, New Mexico! New Franchise Owner, Isaac Montoya, has been in the franchising business since his college days and he is very familiar with the sub franchise, as a company.

“Cheba Hut has kind of always been in the family,” Montoya said. “My parents took over the Cheba Hut near the university with some partners a few years ago when I was going to UNM. In 2014, I actually took over my parents’ business partner’s shares in Cheba Hut, so that’s kind of how I fell into the whole role of owning and operating my own franchise.”

Although Isaac is a fan of Cheba Hut’s infamous marijuana theme, he recognizes that not everyone is, clarifying that Cheba Hut only has one mission – to serve excellent subs.

“We get people that come in all the time with a stigma about what we serve,” he said. “At the end of the day, we serve great food, and that’s the bottom line.”

Montoya is excited about owning and operating this Cheba Hut, and plans to expand to other areas of Albuquerque, adding to the currently-existing 25 Cheba Huts nationwide.

Cheba Hut, A Cannabis-Themed Sandwich Franchise, Plants Seeds for Growth!

Cheba Hut, A Cannabis-Themed Sandwich Franchise, Plants Seeds for Growth!

sandwich-franchise-cheba-hut-denver

Marijuana-themed sandwich franchise, Cheba Hut, is excited to announce their new 6-year plan to grow their business by 800 percent! The goal of Cheba Hut’s Founder and majority owner, Scott Jennings, is to double their locations every year, until they reach their goal of 200 stores in 2025. Creating this plan is easy, but reaching the goal will be challenging, especially as Cheba Hut is not accepting outside funding.

How Cheba Hut is Focusing on Growth

One of the main ways in which Cheba Hut hopes to attract a larger consumer base is to create a unique and fun ambiance in their restaurants. The sandwich franchise includes a full bar, and live music (in some locations) on certain days, making it a fun spot to come in and hang out.

Another way Cheba Hut plans on raising funds for expansion is to attract more group diners to the restaurant. Jennings hopes this will increase the amount of time that consumers will ultimately spend at these locations. Cheba Hut will place their focus on excellent customer service, a huge variety of menu options, and cannabis pun-filled wall art in order to achieve this.

“When we started this 21 years ago, people told me ‘You’re nuts, you’re crazy, you can’t do this.’ They definitely thought I was selling weed out the back, and I wasn’t,” Jennings recalled. “There’s a definite green wave that’s happening. But we’ve been paddling hard for 21 years.”
