Lee's Sandwiches Franchise

Sandwich shop

Behind every great American entrepreneurial success story stands a united family. The Le Family in San Jose is one such example of hard-working Americans that have built a thriving restaurant and food service business.

In 2001, the family created a new concept a mixture of bright, energetic restaurant sandwich environment, entertainment cafe and Asian-American cuisine. In addition to the traditional Vietnamese ''banh mi'' sandwiches, there are traditional American sandwiches such as ham and cheese served on baguettes or croissants.

Lee's very own ''Lee's Coffee'' (cafe sua da,), has become world-famous, and a unique selection of more than a dozen smoothies provide a great beverage selection. Minh said: ''Let the customers come to Lee's Sandwiches, just because.. it's a Lee's sandwiches.''

Lee's attracts a diverse crowd from traditional Vietnamese-Americans to a younger crowd that is wowed by computer monitors suspended from the ceiling flashing special deals, full-color bilingual menu signs and chances to win free meals based on the number given to customers for their order.

The new Lee's Sandwiches concept has proved to be so successful that Lee's Sandwiches has become one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the West. By 2006, there are 31 Lee's Sandwiches in operation and development in California, Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. The company projects that it will add another dozen stores in 2007, which will include the states of Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, and will double the numbers every subsequent years.

Lee's Sandwiches' strong growth, combined with a commitment to the communities it serves, has been recognized by the Small Business Administration, which awarded Lee's Sandwiches its 2003 Regional Entrepreneurial Success Award. In Orange County in 2003, Chieu Le was recognized as the Business Person of the Year. In 2005, Lee's Sandwiches was recognized by Modern Baking as one of the ''Top 50'' Foodservice Bakery in the United States.
