Los Angeles-Based Mendocino Farms To Bring Sandwiches & Salads To San Diego's Scripps Ranch

March 5, 2024

Los Angeles-based Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market will unveil the company's seventh San Diego restaurant later this year in the East County community of Scripps Ranch.

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, as well as a variety of delicious sides.

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 in Carlsbad, downtown San Diego, Westfield Mission Valley, Camino Village Plaza in Encinitas, and within Regency Centers' 4S Commons Town Center.

The newest Mendocino Farms location will open later this year in the space that currently houses El Pollo Loco inside Scripps Ranch Marketplace plaza. The company is continuing to expand its presence around California, in addition to growing markets in Washington, Texas and beyond. 

Mendocino Farms is expected to open in late-2024 at 10715 Scripps Poway Parkway in San Diego's Scripps Ranch community. For more information, visit mendocinofarms.com.
