Togo's Kicks Off in El Centro, California With 1,000 Free Hot Pastrami and Turkey Avocado Sandwiches

Togo’s Eateries, Inc., a “West Coast Original” since 1971, is celebrating the opening of its first restaurant in El Centro, California by giving away 1,000 free hot pastrami and turkey avocado sandwiches. Within just days of their announcement on Facebook, eager fans claimed all 1,000 coupons. In the month ahead, Togo’s guests will also have a chance at winning free sandwiches for a year, gift certificates and a free catering party. The new restaurant is located at 1573 W. Main St. across the street from Walgreens.

Known for its big, fresh and meaty sandwiches, Togo’s is all about piling on the premium ingredients. Togo’s provides a one-on-one, deli-style service instead of the assembly-chain service people find at most sandwich shops. Offering artisan breads, premium, hand-sliced meats and freshly-scooped California avocados, Togo’s sets itself apart from other sandwich shops. The company stands behind its world-famous Hot Pastrami sandwich with a money back guarantee if customers can find a hot pastrami sandwich they like better. In addition, Togo’s caters meetings and parties of any size with sandwich platters, box lunches and a new Hot Sandwich catering bar.

“We’re excited to bring Togo’s amazing sandwiches to our community,” said Dave Takata, franchisee of the El Centro Togo’s. “As long-time residents of the Imperial Valley, we recognize how important it is to create new jobs and contribute to local civic and charitable organizations. We look forward to making Togo’s a source of growth and revitalization in El Centro.”

To celebrate Togo’s launch in El Centro, the restaurant has four giveaways planned for the opening month:

  • Week 1: Togo’s will hand out 1,000 free #9 Hot Pastrami and #24 Turkey Avocado sandwiches to the first 1,000 fans that ‘liked’ Togo’s El Centro on Facebook.
  • Week 2: FREE SANDWICHES FOR A YEAR to every 100th guest. Yes, that’s one free Togo’s sandwich per week for 52 weeks.
  • Week 3: $50 Gift Card to every 100th guest.
  • Week 4: Enter to win a free Togo’s Catering Party. Treat up to 20 people to made-to-dream, sandwich awesomeness.

Founded in 1971 in San Jose, California, Togo’s now has more than 325 restaurants open and under development throughout the West.

The El Centro location will be open daily from 10 am to 8 pm. Guests can call the El Centro Togo’s at 760-337-9463 or visit to place an order online and skip the line. Delivery will be available throughout the local community. Follow Togo’s on Twitter and on Facebook, and for the latest Togo’s news, coupons and special offers, join the Togo’s Sandwich Club.

Togo’s was founded in 1971 by a young college student with a large appetite and little money looking to make sandwiches the way he liked them — big, fresh and meaty. Keeping in the spirit of the original, Togo’s products are still made with only the highest quality ingredients; including fresh-baked Artisan breads, hand sliced premium pastrami, turkey and roast beef, as well as California avocados and cheeses. Togo’s proprietary brand of old-fashioned Pastrami, 98 percent fat-free slow-roasted turkey, and Togo’s homemade chicken and tuna salad set the brand apart from other sandwich shops. With more than 325 locations open and under development throughout the West, Togo’s is a franchise-based business that offers online ordering and catering services.
