The Togo's Brand Story
About Togo's Great Sandwiches

In 1971, out of a small sandwich shack in San Jose, Togo's started with a fairly simple goal: provide made-to-order sandwiches filled with fresh ingredients. After opening a second location in 1974, Togo's began franchising in the late '70s. The brand has become a West Coast original because of its high quality ingredients and one-on-one friendly service that sets them apart. While most of their franchises are based in California, Togo's is expanding throughout the West with close to 300 locations open or under development.
