Mr. Sandwich a tradition for three generations.

Paco Plastics and Engineering is a small company in Santa Fe Springs that produces many of the trim parts you might find on a commercial airplane through a process called injection molding. They also manufacture the metal latches that are used in the galley and overhead compartments too. Paco Plastics was started in 1948 by my husband’s father.

When we were first married, and my husband started working at Paco Plastics, in the early 1980’s, he and his father would spend each day together during their lunch breaks. One of their favorite places to go was Mr. Sandwich in Whittier, California. Mr. Sandwich has provided many a good meal, and bonding experience, for my husband and his father, who has since passed away. Mr. Sandwich is not simply a good memory for my husband, it has become a tradition. For my children, the highlight of visiting their father at work was the promise of a trip to Mr. Sandwich. Once again, Mr. Sandwich provided a good meal and a bonding experience for yet another generation.

Today, as my son has started to work at Paco Plastics with his father, they both enjoy an occasional lunch together with Mr. Sandwich.  Three generations of hungry men have experienced the food from Mr. Sandwich, I call that a tradition.

Fast, friendly, clean and reasonable, Mr. Sandwich

Call ahead for take out or delivery.

Mr. Sandwich has climbed the ladder of success.

The owner of Mr. Sandwich has experienced Mr. Sandwich from day one, only not as an owner.  Originally a sandwich maker, he saw the deli change hands two times before he was given the opportunity to make it his own.  Today you can still find David, making sandwiches and making friends behind the counter of Mr. Sandwich. 

Mr Sandwich is great for a quick lunch.

Mr. Sandwich is a sandwich expert.

The specialty at Mr. Sandwich is deli subs, offered both hot and cold, and made in four different sizes; mini, regular, budget and large. A sandwich with a bag of chips and a drink is a quick satisfying lunch for many of the people who work at the local businesses in Whittier. 

On cold days an addition of his daily special soup turns any lunch selection into a hearty meal. 

The meatball sandwich is especially tasty, but believe it or not, he makes a mean tuna too. 

One of the services he offers to speed up the process is for you to call in your order ahead of time.  Mr. Sandwich will have it ready and waiting when you come to pick it up.  On those days when it seems impossible to leave the office Mr. Sandwich will even deliver it to you.
