Erik Johnson, Founder

Yes, There Really is an Erik!

In 1973, for an initial cash outlay of $429.00, Erik Johnson transformed a 600 sq. ft. delicatessen/bakery in Scotts Valley into Erik’s DeliCafé.  Now we have 32 locations throughout Santa Cruz County, the Bay Area, the Monterey Peninsula and one in Roseville.

SoupsHere’s to Your Health! ®

In the early days of Erik’s DeliCafé, Erik recruited his mom and dad, Ray and Dolores Johnson to help create many of the recipes that are still used by Erik’s today.  Over the years, Erik’s has created a number of “Sandwiches with Character” with the help of Erik’s Team Members and Erik’s customers.
