Cheba Hut, the cannabis-inspired sandwich shop, will open a new location in downtown Phoenix this summer.
The eatery, which was founded in Tempe and headquartered there until it moved to Colorado in 2013, will be opening its sixth Arizona location at 825 N Seventh St. in the former Bayless Grocery & Market building, which opened in 1928, next to Mother Bunch Brewing off of Seventh and Garfield streets.
The new location, slated to open in July or August, is under the franchise ownership of Dorian Lenz, in partnership with his son, Dorian Jr., who does marketing for the Arizona Cheba Huts, and Josh Willet, who is an operations manager for other locations and co-franchisee of the Tucson location.
Lenz said the new location will feature Mother Bunch Brewing’s beer on tap, as well as selections from SanTan Brewing Co.
Lenz and his partners had been looking at a downtown location for the last year and a half, but settled on Seventh Street due to its proximity to downtown events and street visibility.
“It’s close to First Friday, which is a lot of our crowd,” Lenz said. “They’ll bring more people to the area. We want to make this place eclectic.”
The first Cheba Hut opened in Arizona in 1998. At fast-food sandwich chain Cheba Hut, everything, from the sandwich sizes to their names, is marijuana-themed. As its slogan explains, Cheba Hut sells “toasted” subs.
Cheba Hut has been around since 1998. It first opened shop near Arizona University, where owner Scott Jennings went to school. He was inspired to open a sandwich shop after noticing a need for high-quality, late-night food delivery.
Keeping in mind that late-night food is often served to a particular clientele, Jennings came up with the concept for Cheba Hut. Sandwiches come in three sizes: Nugs are 4 inches, Pinners are 8, and Blunts are 12. For more cannabis jargon, look no further than the menu. Sandwiches have names like Majic Mushroom (a portabella sub), Kush (a BLT), and Dank (a pizza sub). The dessert menu features “Incredible Munchies,” such as rice krispie bars, goo balls, and hemp brownies (which the menu points out are perfectly legal).
