Is Killing It”

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!

Cheba Hut’s Story

As a lifelong “foodie”, Scott Jennings worked at quite a few different restaurants during his college years and decided it was an industry he wanted to grow into, but with one condition; he had to seriously shake things up.  In one particular job as a delivery driver, Scott noticed a severely underserved market for late night deliveries. After coming to the realization that most college students liked to get high, he figured, why not create a marijuana-themed sub shop?! And so in 1998, Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs was born.

How Are We Different?

Cheba Hut Sub FranchiseThe answer is in every way!  With our focus on serving the best damn sub you’ve ever had, employing the most genuine staff, and creating the most fun and relaxing atmosphere, we believe we are much different (and better!) than the average food joint. Here’s the specifics of what has made Cheba shine above the rest:


Cheba Hut is a fun and distinct marijuana-themed eatery. By using puns, innuendos, and eclectic decorations we have created a business that is truly unique within the fast-casual space. This theme has worked for the past 20 years, but with the legalization of marijuana sweeping the country, we have become even more on-trend than we ever thought possible.


With all proprietary recipes, we take pride in skipping shortcuts. We offer toasted subs, homemade munchies and cotton mouth cures like Kool-Aid and local beer. Our proprietary Parisian bread is hand-rolled, hand-scored, and baked by a baker with over 50 years experience. Once all of our premium ingredients are assembled, we run each masterpiece through a toaster melting everything together to achieve the perfect toasted sub. We then “Load Up” each one with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, house dressing, parmesan and oregano.

High Opportunity,

Low Stress Life

Owning a Cheba hut franchise is an opportunity of a lifetime.
