Cheba Hut is the Marijuana-themed Sandwich Chain That Sells ‘Blunt’ Size Sandwiches
If your funny bone tickles at the sound of ordering a ‘nug’ or ‘blunt’ sized sandwich, the growing Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs chain might be worth your patronage.
The high concept* behind Cheba Hut is simple (*no pun intended) — a friendly fast-food chain themed entirely around the cannabis lifestyle. The best part about it — well, besides the awesome names of their sandwiches — is that the chain is not a joke.
In fact, the chain has been in business since 1998, where Cheba Hut opened its first location near Arizona State University, which we were recently reminded is ranked as #17 on a recent “Higher Education: Top Colleges for Marijuana” list.
That’s right stoners, if you walk in to one of Cheba Hut’s roughly 15 locations, you’ll be ordering sandwiches that come in one of three sizes: Nugs (4″), Pinners (8″) and Blunts (12″).
Not tongue-in-cheek enough for you stoner synonym seekers? All the sandwiches are named after that ‘good good’ like a Majic Mushroom (portabella sub), the Silver Haze (hummus sub), Kush (BLT), Endo (reuben sub) and the Dank (a pizza sub).
Time’s Moneyland blog notes that the chain has signed agreements for 20 more store openings, and the restaurants have received same-store sales growth of 12% in recent years.
Could Cheba Hut be the stoner doppleganger of Quiznos? Only time will tell, until that happens, I’ll be trying to scope out a Cheba Hut location to get my hands on a fat nug of White Widow (pictured directly below).
