Help Erik's Feed the Hungry!
Erik's DeliCafé is excited to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County to help feed the hungry. Many people, including seniors and children, are plagued with hunger and malnutrition on a daily basis. Second Harvest Food Bank's mission is for not one person to go hungry or miss out on any life opportunities due to malnutrition. The branch at Santa Cruz County help distribute millions of pounds of food annually to working poor families, children, and seniors.
Erik's DeliCafé strongly believes in helping the community and what better way than to partner with the local Food Bank to help in the efforts to end hunger. From now until the end of January 2016, when you visit any Erik's location in the Santa Cruz County and purchase any item from our What's New Menu, Erik's will DONATE one meal. Whether you are buying a What's New Sandwich or a slice of Pumpkin Bread, one meal will be donated to the the food bank.
We hope you will partner with us in giving back to the community and helping us feed the hungry.
Erik's DeliCafé of Saratoga Celebrates One Year Anniversary
Franchise owner of Erik's DeliCafé of Saratoga, Michael Wigon, is proud to celebrate one year since opening his location on Cox Ave. Over the course of the year, Michael has enjoyed learning more about Erik's and upholding the standards that makes Erik's the fast, fresh, and delicious quick service restaurant it is today.
"I've enjoyed the whole time getting to know so many regular veteran customers and greeting new Erik's customers. I'm looking forward to another year as we grow together," says Wigon.
To celebrate this special occasion, Michael was presented with a cake with the Erik's potbelly logo. The cake looked so nice, Michael almost did not want to cut into it and would have loved to keep it on display along with the sculpture of himself that his daughter made for him in his Erik's uniform.
We are so happy to have Michael on board and appreciate his commitment to Erik's DeliCafé. Please say "Hi" to him if you see him at the Saratoga restaurant. He is easy to recognize as he always has a big smile on his face.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors One Sandwich at a Time with Tasting Under the Redwoods
Over 400 happy attendees enjoyed fabulous food, unlimited drinks and great music from Soul Doubt at Tasting Under the Redwoods. This event took place at Roaring Camp's Bret Harte Hall in Felton and was hosted by Valley Churches United Missions (VCUM), a non-profit organization that provides food and emergency service to low-income residents of the San Lorenzo Valley and Scotts Valley.
Erik's DeliCafé was one of 25 restaurants and confectioners who provided food to raise money to support VCUM and their cause. Erik's DeliCafé of Scotts Valley was the very first location where Erik's began. Erik's has supported and contributed to the community for over 40 years.
We are known for our sandwiches, so what better way to give back to the community than with our sandwiches. We are thrilled to have participated in this event and hope many neighbors will be able to have a full meal during times of crisis.
