Ike’s Place sandwiches could come to San Francisco State University
Ike’s Place, the popular sandwich shop that had to leave its location in San Francisco’s Castro District, could open a new location in the student center at San Francisco State University.
SF State’s student publication The Golden Gate [X]press reports that Ike’s Place is being considered for a downstairs slot in the Cesar Chavez Student Center.
According to Travis Northup, chair of the student center governing board, it is a very real possibility.
“Yes, Ike’s is being considered,” Northup said, confirming that the hugely popular sandwich shop has submitted a formal request to occupy the space on the lower level of Cesar Chavez where the New York Minute deli formerly was.
“We knew they were considering it,” Northup said. “We were surprised they turned in a proposal but it was good news because of their reputation. We want to bring the best to students.”
The proposal was first reported by Ike’s Place itself — in posts to Twitter and Facebook Oct. 12. Since then, a Facebook page “Bring Ike’s Place to SFSU” has gathered more than 1,500 people who “like” it.
Ike’s Place had occupied a storefront in the Castro District, but left that location in September after complaints from neighbors about cooking smells, lines of customers waiting for sandwiches and noise from the lines.
