Togo's Eateries, Inc. announced the grand opening of its latest company-owned restaurant in Berkeley, Calif. located at 2172 Shattuck Avenue. To celebrate the grand opening, Togo's aims to raise funds for the Berkeley Food & Housing Project, an organization dedicated to easing and ending the crisis of homelessness for men, women, and children in the Berkeley community. During the first week of operation, guests will receive a free, six-inch sandwich with every $2 donation made to the charity.
"Berkeley represents the perfect market for our sixth corporate-owned restaurant," said Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo's Holdings, LLC. "Togo's is known for its big, fresh and meaty sandwiches, wraps, salads and more and we look forward to providing local residents with our deli inspired one-on-one style service that is synonymous with our brand. With the help of our raving fans, we will be able to bring some much needed funding & support to the Berkeley Food & Housing Project."
To further celebrate the opening, Togo's will provide other special offers to guests including their choice of cookie, brownie, or even gelato from next door at Almare Gelato, during the second week of operation. During the third week, any guest who purchases a nine-inch sandwich will receive a free 20 oz. drink.
At Togo's, there is a relentless commitment to using only the freshest, superior-quality ingredients and meats. Fresh baked Artisan bread, abundant quantities of freshly sliced lean pastrami, roast beef, turkey and other premium meats as well as hand-scooped California avocados are part of Togo's exceptional menu, and set the brand apart from other sandwich shops.
"We are honored that Togo's has offered us such generous support as they open their new Berkeley restaurant," said Jim Huntley, director of advancement at Berkeley Food & Housing Project. "Like Togo's, The Berkeley Food & Housing Project is passionate about serving the community and this is a great way for Berkeley residents to enjoy some of Togo's delicious food while supporting a great cause."
