company overview

In the beginning....The Sandwich Spot INC. was formed in June of 2006. The Company holds a federally registered Trademark for The Sandwich Spot®. The business was a start up company funded by the founder Thomas M. Heally. With over 32 years in the food industry Mr. Heally has used his extensive background to develop an above average profitable Fast-Casual business model that specializes in quality fresh products, fresh baked breads, and superior customer service. By the end of 2015, The Sandwich Spot® had helped 30 Owner-Operators to start their own The Sandwich Spot®.


There has been an incredible growing interest from many people both in California as well as other states to own their own The Sandwich Spot® due to growth of the Fast-Casual segment of the restaurant industry and desire for healthy fresh food prepared with high quality ingredients. This is a highly profitable and quickly growing part of the multi-billion dollar food industry.


The Sandwich Spot® licensing opportunity was created in response to this demand, and to provide a proven business model. A restaurant owner or anyone who desires to open a café or a fine eatery can do so by following our business model to prevent costly start-up mistakes, as well as potentially makes a six figure income.

tom heally / founder

Tom started in the Deli business at the age of 15. He started working for Safeway Inc. in 1984 working in numerous delis in the company until becoming a store manager in 1990. He ran one of the highest grossing stores in the San Francisco Area for the next 7 years. With his sales consistently over $3 million dollars a year, Tom fine-tuned his management skills while his store ranked in the top % of customer service scores for the area. Understanding the complex systems of food costs, labor costs, and overhead costs have given Tom an accurate picture and a vision of what an owner truly needs to focus on to make their businesses most profitable.


In 1997 Tom left Safeway, Inc. to pursue a business opportunity with a childhood friend, starting a sandwich shop in San Mateo, California. With Tom's extensive background in the business and his niche in the customer service area, the shop quickly became the go-to place on the Peninsula. In 1999 Tom took over the shop and by getting involved in and giving back to the community, the shop grew. He operated the store until 2004. Tom then helped develop other shops in the greater Bay Area.


His knowledge of the business helped launch the company from 1 location to 8 locations from 2004 to 2006 - a tremendous growth in just seven years. After franchising, Tom decided to leave and move back to the original structure of the company based on Owner-Operators who could give back to communities without adhering to strict franchising guidelines. Thus, The Sandwich Spot® was started.


The Sandwich Spot® is a successful "Turn-Key" business model and an opportunity with a very bright future for the person who sees this vision and wants to create a good solid financial base for themselves and their families …so get on board and let's grow together!
