It's Time To Get Toasted!

Cheba Hut is the quintessential “anti-corporation.” Since 1998, we have broken the mold of mundane, fast-casual concepts and set ourselves apart by becoming the first marijuana themed “joint” (pun intended). We are dedicated to combining locally sourced ingredients with a chill, eclectic environment where real food is served by genuine people.

Over the past 20 years, we have seen steady growth and today our huts can be found in over 20 locations, across 7 states. We are proud to have created more than just a place people want to hang out at; we have turned our customers into raving, loyal fans and we have the numbers to prove it. Our unit economics are industry-leading!


Why Choose Cheba Hut?

Do It Your Way
Want to own a profitable and proven sub sandwich franchise business, but don’t want to be another cog in “The Man’s” system? Take our proven model, but keep your individuality. Be great, but have fun and do it your way.

Keep It Simple
Most restaurants are really hard work. This is probably why the average Franchise Owner in this industry doesn’t get to have a whole lot of fun. At Cheba Hut, however, we’ve simplified the heck out of our operation, so that our Owners can enjoy running their business. At Cheba Hut, there are no flat tops, no deep fryers, and no expensive hoods. Not only does this keep initial investments more affordable, it also creates an ease of operations.

Create Raving Fans, Not Just Customers
We got street cred! With our following of over 45,000 on social media, and hundreds of 5 star yelp and google reviews, all new Cheba Owners open their doors with an already killer reputation in the sub sandwich franchise industry.

Embrace Your Community
We don’t do cookie-cutter stores here at Cheba Hut. We embrace our community by celebrating what is unique and special about each market we open in. Our “Secret Stash” menu (Sandwiches unique to each market), and local beers help reinforce this.

High Profits
Our average Hut generates $1.3 million in revenue – about twice that of your typical sandwich franchise. And with average sales growth rate of over 13%, you can start to see why Cheba Hut is the real deal.


Who Is Cheba Hut Looking For?

Our Franchise Owners are seemingly relaxed and fun-loving; you’ll rarely catch them in a suit and tie. But don’t let that trick you into thinking they aren’t high performers. At Cheba Hut, we are driven to beat the other guys. We know we have a better product. We know we provide better customer service. We know we build real and lasting employee culture and we’re determined to prove all that out on the bottom line of our P&Ls.

Here’s some of the specifics on who we are looking for:

  1. Cultural Alignment: You will need to be a fun-loving, people person who can enjoy interacting with your employees and customers as well as the wider community of Cheba Entrepreneurs.
  2. Driven To Be The Best: Don’t get it twisted - we are all driven to be the best! While we like to have fun, we take pride in our industry-leading economics. You too should want to create extremely profitable, successful locations.
  3. Community Player: We seek out individuals who are excited by the idea of helping their local communities live a healthier life. You should also enjoy the idea of giving back. Each Franchise Owner is required to throw 2 parties/concerts each year as a part of giving back to their loyal customers.
  4. Desire To Grow: Having restaurant experience is considered an advantage in our evaluation process, but it’s not essential. You should however, have a strong business background, be a “people person,” and have a desire to scale into multiple stores.
