San Francisco-based Ike’s Love & Sandwiches opened last week in Manhattan Beach at 1116 N. Sepulveda Blvd.
“Manhattan Beach, you have shown me so much love that I want to give it right back to you,” Founder Ike Shehadeh said in a company press release. “I created two new sandwiches (Polliwog and Fun House) and an extra special BBQ sauce just for you. You’re going to love these new sandwiches that you can’t get anywhere else except our new Manhattan Beach store.”
The Polliwog features chicken fried steak, Ike’s Manhattan Beach BBQ Sauce, avocado and pepper jack cheese, while the Fun House is a vegetarian version of the Polliwog made with vegan fried chicken.
CEO Michael Goldberg is one of the brothers who introduced Manhattan Beach to Fresh Brothers Pizza and is excited about the store.
“The Manhattan Beach location is particularly important to me personally because Manhattan Beach is where we opened the original location of Fresh Brothers,” he said in the release. “Our newest Ike’s Love & Sandwiches flagship location in Manhattan Beach expands our growing footprint in Southern California where fans have lined up for hours on opening day to be the first to try the new exclusive sandwiches. The love from our fans fuels our growth at Ike’s, which is why we’re expecting to add more than 20 locations throughout the west next year.”
