South Coast Deli to Open 3rd Location!

South Coast Deli is planning on opening up a 3rd location on State and Carrillo where the former Tuttini’s was.

I’m not sure what happened to Tuttini’s, but I know the previous owners worked so damn hard to make a go of that little place that they probably just gave up due to pure exhaustion. (You may recall Tutti’s in Montecito? The word on the street back then was that their lease was up the landlord didn’t renew it and was instead seeking a more long term corporate renter. Tutti’s old location is now home to the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf on Coast Village Road.) Tuttini’s, the spin off a few years later was on the way to my office and before I had a wife and baby, or a life – I used to often get to work just after 5 am. I could always count on Susan being there so early each day, prepping treats and brewing a pot from¬† Roco . And although I was a business owner myself busting my tail and working ridiculous hours, I was always so impressed at her hard work and dedication. Also, her perseverance – because when her Montecito restaurant closed they re-opened it in Ventura (Tutti’s off Main) and opened Tuttini’s in downtown Santa Barbara.

I tried for years to get them on board with Axxess but never got anywhere. But regardless, it’s a bummer to see them go. The good news is that one of Santa Barbara’s favorite eateries is going in there – Yup, South Coast Deli.

Again, here’s a couple who has also worked endlessly hard at building their business and it’s nice to see they’ll soon have 3 doors open. I’ve known them for over ten years as they were one of my very first clients in Axxess Book #1 back in 1999 -¬† and amazingly they’re still with us (Axxess). Over ten years ago, they had a location in Carpinteria and the one that’s still on Hollister at Patterson. They believed in what I was doing and give me the opportunity to prove that it could work and for that I’m most thankful. If I didn’t have clients like them I’d be long out of business!

Anyway, I think they’ll be open in the next few months so look out for an Axxess email announcement.
