Popular sandwich shop is closing its East Sacramento store: ‘Far beyond our control’

After nearly seven years of business, Beach Hut Deli in East Sacramento will close its doors Friday.

The beach-themed sandwich shop took to its Facebook page Monday to announce its last day, noting the storefront’s lease and parking were just two of the obstacles the business struggled to overcome over the last year.

“Things far beyond our control and things we could have never seen coming have occurred,” Beach Hut Deli wrote Monday in a farewell post to its East Sacramento customers.

“This is been very difficult being we have established so many amazing friends and have created so many amazing memories here.”

Some staff will transition to other Beach Hut Deli locations including the downtown store at 711 K St.

The sandwich chain announced the opening of its East Sacramento location in November 2016 with surfboard tables and staff in beach attire. Since then, the menu has been filled with a variety of food like salads, nachos, hot dogs and, of course, hot and cold sandwiches.

Some of the most popular subs are the “Surfin Bird” with turkey, avocado and cream cheese ($7.50 to $22) and the “Santa Cruz” stacked with pastrami, bacon and pickles ($7.50 to $26).

Beach Hut Deli locations are spread across California, Nevada and Oregon with more than 10 shops in the region.

Once the East Sacramento location closes Friday, four storefronts will be left in Sacramento: 2406 J St in midtown, 711 K St in downtown Sacramento, 2535 Fair Oaks Blvd. in Arden Arcade and 3620 North Freeway Blvd. in Natomas.
