Drinks like Dirty Hippie, Hot Box and Cheba Rita are all Cheba Hut signatures, while beer will feature a mix of national and local favorites including: St. Arnold, Holler Brewing, Eureka Heights, Karbach Brewing and O’Dell Brewery.

Raj has spent the past 23 years working for American companies in the IT industry and intends to keep his day job. Ashley has spent the past 9 years staying home to care for her family. They look forward to serving their hometown of Houston and plan to open two more stores within the community within the next five years.

The location at 2150 Edwards St. is in the heart of Houston’s arts district at Sawyer Yards. With the high energy of artists and art lovers, Sawyer Yards is the perfect place for a Cheba Hut store.

“This Houston location is one I’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” said Seth Larsen, relationship manager. “Raj and Ashley hail from Houston and are the perfect franchise partners for the job. We know this will be a huge hit.”

Cheba Hut has escaped the establishment and been ‘toasting’ since its founding in 1998. The brand broke the mold of fast-casual everyday concepts and stood out as the first ‘joint’ sandwich on the theme of marijuana (pun intended). Cheba Hut is dedicated to combining local ingredients with a chill, eclectic environment where authentic cuisine is served by authentic people.

The Gandhis are eager to provide the community with a unique atmosphere, where unique people can be themselves and enjoy the shop. “We fell in love with Cheba Hut for its acceptance of the counterculture that draws people in and the best products that keep them coming back,” they said.
