Los Angeles-Based Mendocino Farms To Bring Sandwiches & Salads To Encinitas

January 6, 2022

Los Angeles-based Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market will unveil the company's sixth San Diego restaurant later this year in the north county community of Encinitas.

Mendocino Farms was founded in Los Angeles in 2005 by husband-and-wife team Mario Del Pero and Ellen Chen. The sandwich and salad shop, which is heavily backed by Whole Foods Market, now has nearly 40 locations spread throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. The menu at Mendocino Farms is centered around seasonal, chef-driven gourmet sandwiches and creative salads. 

After a successful San Diego debut with the opening of the first area location in The Shops in La Jolla Village in late 2016, Mendocino Farms has opened other area branches in Del Mar Highlands Town Center, The Square at Bressi Ranch, downtown San Diego, and Westfield Mission Valley. The sixth area outpost will open by year's end within Camino Village Plaza in Encinitas.

Mendocino Farms is expected to open by fall 2022 at 268 N El Camino Real in San Diego's North County city of Encinitas. For more information, visit mendocinofarms.com.
