Baggin’s Gourmet Sandwiches began when Cheree and Jay Garrett hopped off their Seattle, Washington motorcycle in Tucson, Arizona to start a new chapter. As with all great things, it started from something else and became bigger than they even imagined. Motivated by a little chocolate chip cookie, Cheree and Jay decided to open a sandwich shop on Pima Street in 1984. The first day, they sold seven sandwiches; the next day, they sold fifteen. Today, Baggin’s makes over 3200 sandwiches daily and even more chocolate chip cookies.
Selling our gourmet sandwich creations in a bag with that little cookie has proven successful over the years. The real success does not only come from the numbers but in those positive moments we have helped create. Baggin’s has become a place like home. University of Arizona students reminisce about college years at our Speedway store, young adults remember their first summer job as a cashier and past employees come back with their families to eat with us. Those are the moments we savor as we feel food brings all people together whether in a home kitchen or a neighborhood restaurant. Food is life.
Today, we are proud to look back at all that Baggin’s has accomplished over the years. With all of our ups and downs, we are still moving forward with positivity and attention to detail that Cheree has made a foundation at Baggin’s. We have added new faces at Baggin’s over the years and today, we are made up of high school students, hard working college grads, moms and dads and everyone in between.
