“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 cannabis-themed “joint”. We are dedicated to combining home grown recipes with a chill, eclectic environment where real food is served by genuine people.

Own A Cheba Hut Toasted Subs Shop

A Fun Counter-Culture,  With No B.S.

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 of industry-leading!


Don’t just take our word for it.

Hear for yourself from our Franchise Owners what it’s like to own a Cheba Hut Franchise.

Who We Look For


You will need to be a fun-loving, people person, who enjoys interacting with your employees and customers, as well as the wider community of Cheba Entrepreneurs.


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.


We seek out individuals who are excited by the idea of engaging with their local communities and having fun with them. Each year, we require Franchise Owners to throw a party for their community. Good music, good booze, and good times are the gifts you must give back.


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.

“Business is great. This first year in Arizona all of stores have passed 1 million, with one store surpassing the 2 million mark!”

The initial investment range for a Cheba Hut ranges between $376,000- $678,000, which is considerably lower than what many of those other Franchises want for a basic, cookie-cutter restaurant. The range is determined by the type and condition of the real estate and the particular market you are in.

Start-up costs include line items like leasehold improvements, equipment, furniture, inventory/supplies, grand opening marketing, and three months of initial working capital. A competitive benefit for Cheba Hut is our simple operational concept where our stores have no complicated and expensive hoods or grills. In fact, in order to produce the best damn sandwich you’ve ever had, our Franchise Owners only need our Cheba toaster. Thanks to flexible, smaller formats, our build-outs are cheaper than other complex restaurant build-outs.

Investment  $376,000-$678,000

For candidates applying for a single unit agreement, you should have a credit score of 700+, liquid capital of $225,000 or more and a net worth of over $430,000. For candidates applying for multiple units, the requirements in terms of both professional backgrounds, skill sets are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Candidates with strong credit are often suitable for SBA or traditional business loans that can cover up to 75% of the overall investment. Cheba Hut has relationships with lenders in the franchise space and will make the appropriate introductions during the Education Process.

For those with experience in multi-unit franchising or with a high degree or business/retail experience, you may be eligible for a multi-unit agreement with Cheba which affords new Franchise Owners with a lower franchise fee for each unit awarded.


Get started on the road to owning a Cheba Hut.

We have fun. But don’t be fooled; We’re focused on becoming the most profitable concept of our kind. Ever.
