Our Story

You can now sink your teeth into owning your own Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, as the popular nationwide chain continues their expansion!

Founder and namesake Ike Shehadeh opened the first sandwich shop in 2007. Since then the fast casual chain has expanded and gained a cult following for the large sandwiches and diverse toppings at all the Ike’s locations. Shehadeh’s smiling, goateed face serves as the instantly identifiable logo for the restaurants.

While the menu on the wall features a certain number of the offerings, customers can always order any of the Ike’s more than 800 specialty sandwiches with options for everyone. The signature on any Ike’s sandwich is their “Dirty Sauce,” a creamy garlic aioli that is toasted into the bread. The custom-made bread comes in soft Dutch crunch, French, sourdough, whole wheat or gluten-free rolls.

Ike’s Love & Sandwiches is a foodie sensation  with a very unique guest experience, a loyal customer base – including a huge celebrity following, and low start-up costs. Ike’s is simply the best sandwich franchise opportunity, period.
