Togo’s is accelerating its growth plans for Arizona. The San Jose, Calif.-based sandwich chain aims to develop an additional 25 new restaurants in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Flagstaff, Tempe and Tucson, among other metropolitan areas across the state.
“Togo’s has experienced great success in Arizona, so we’re boosting our expansion plans to include additional Arizona towns,” said Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo’s Holdings LLC. “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.”
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.
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.
At Togo’s, 51 percent of its traditional restaurants experienced average unit sales in excess of $600,000, with 25 percent over $800,000, according to a news release.
