The Story Behind the name “California Sandwiches”
If California Sandwiches originated in Toronto’s little Italy… then how did it get its name?
The story is quite simple! Around the time the grocery store was being converted into our new restaurant, the Papa/Bertucci girls went on vacation, and they came back extremely tanned! The customers all began calling them the “California Girls”.
To our family California represented success and fame and the name caught on so quickly !
