RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - Looking for a hot, savory French dip or tri-tip sandwich in Rancho Cordova? You can soon expect to Baguette Up.

Owner Sam Azizi, who lives in Vacaville, said the new restaurant recently passed required final city inspections and expects to be open before the end of June.

“We expect to hire about 30 people for the restaurant and interested applicants can apply and message us on baguetteup.com,” he said. Azizi owns two other eateries: Benicia Grill 1 in Benicia, and Benicia Grill 2 in Fairfield.

Signage is up at the new eatery, named for the popular long French roll with its crunchy crust, in Rancho Cordova’s Rivergate Shopping Center at 2320 Sunrise Boulevard. The plaza is anchored by Sportsman’s Warehouse, Smart & Final and Pet Club.

Rancho Cordova is the first location for his Baguette Up, a concept which Azizi said he hopes to expand. If his Rancho Cordova location is successful, he hopes to open future locations, each with drive-thru lanes, in the general Sacramento area.

“Over the past four years, our thin-sliced French Dip and tri-tip steak sandwiches have been two of the top rated, most-requested sandwiches on the menu at both of our Benicia Grill locations,” he said. “Customers love them, and they will be the deserving stars of our new Baguette Up menu.”

Baguette Up sandwiches can be ordered as part of a combination meal, or ala carte. Combos are served with a choice of crosscut, sweet potato or crispy coat fries and a soft drink, according to a website menu.

In a combo a French Dip sandwich with au jus is $10.95. Four different versions of their tri-tip sandwich priced from $11.25 are featured. The menu also includes a variety of other sandwiches with sliced turkey and spicy buffalo chicken tenders. A children’s menu is also available.

"I love Sacramento and Rancho Cordova, and I wanted to open here," he said.

His new 2,813-square-foot restaurant space was most recently occupied by Side Burn BBQ and Brew and had previously been the location of a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.

Azizi said he was drawn to open his new restaurant in the city of Rancho Cordova because he has family there. He credits his son Jordan for finding the location of the shuttered restaurant which featured a drive-thru lane, and once looking it over with him, immediately recognized its potential. Together, the pair will co-own the restaurant.

While the drive-thru is likely to be a prominent feature of the Rancho Cordova restaurant, the co-owners of Baguette Up will also offer indoor dining when it's permitted, and dining on an outdoor patio.

Opening hours are expected to be Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Saturday from 10:15 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. For further information call 916-858-1500.
