The We Love Hartford spotlight is on Toasted- a modern “sandwich revolution” with a vision to enhance the way America eats sandwiches! The Toasted truck is one of my favorites to visit during Spring and Summer festivities in Bushnell Park. I am thrilled to share they are nestled in a new home right in the heart of downtown Hartford!
Hartford Girl: Why did you start Toasted?

Debra: We chose to start Toasted because we felt there was a need in the quick service restaurant industry for a new sandwich concept.  There are many others out there, but none quite like Toasted.  We are revolutionizing the sandwich industry by the way we create our signature sandwiches and the variety of what we serve. 
Hartford Girl: Why did you choose Hartford as the home for Toasted?
Debra: We chose Hartford as our launch city for our concept because I am born and raised in West Hartford and had always gone to Hartford as a child to experience the cultural things that it had to offer.  I believe in the city's future and know that Toasted will revolutionize the way Hartford eats sandwiches!  I also worked at the Hartford Culinary Arts Academy as the Director and became very involved with many youth organizations in Hartford.  As a Hartford based company, we employ mostly Hartford residents and some of my former students.  Economic growth and job creation is key to the success of the city and my vision for Toasted is that we can be a part of that process. 

Hartford Girl: What is your biggest challenge with running Toasted?

Debra: One of the biggest challenges since we opened the Toasted storefront has been the weather!  We depend on foot traffic to drive our daily sales and when the weather is bad it definitely hinders people from venturing out.  We need to get the word out that we offer catering services and delivery (to local businesses for small deliveries) and that customers can also reach us via the sky bridge from Cityplace.  Another challenge is the weekend business.  We are open on Saturdays and hope that other local businesses will follow trend and create a weekend environment downtown.  We already have seen an increase in the weekend business from the support of the Downtown dwellers and events going on at the XL center.

I hope to see you in new Toasted location (or at their awesome Toasted truck) soon!

I really love toasted breads. Especially with garlic or mozzarella. I'm into food, exploring because I enjoy how people put all their efforts to make some unique recipes that nobody thought it is possible. I love people who are creative in food so much. I wish I have that talent also, but sad to say I don't. But my brother is a chef, so he is the one who makes my meal extra special and of course he is the one I always please make me everything I discovered on the internet. Keep us updated with your blogs.

I love sandwich very much, once I have visited toasted I found beauty and variety of sandwiches. I was amusing with finger licking taste that I have never eat before like toasted.

I have tasted their sandwich before and it's really good. Also, the price of each sandwich compromises with the quality. You can really tell that their dishes are made from high quality ingredients. I'm thankful that I've stumbled upon this blog. Thanks for posting this informative article.

Very inspirational to hear about someone pursuing their dream and becoming successful instead of following the traditional path.
