Chebahat, a marijuana-themed sandwich shop that debuted in Colorado Springs two years ago, has expanded its second location.
This week, a Fort Collins-based chain store opened new shops at the Powers Point Shopping Center southwest of Powers Boulevard and at Burns Road northeast of the city.

Colorado Springs franchisee David Timmons runs the latest Cheba Hut. His JTT Holdings is the largest operator in the chain with 19 offices in Colorado, Nevada and Wisconsin, according to Timmons’ LinkedIn profile. He has been a Chebahat franchisee since 2010.
Colorado Springs’ first Chebahat opened in 2019 northwest of Interstate Highway 25 and Fillmore Street.

There are many references to marijuana and counterculture in Chebahat. The name is a slang term for pots, and the company logo indicates that smoke is swirling from a lush hut. The menu includes “toast” sandwiches (reference to being higher) named after pot stocks such as Acapulco Gold, Jamaica Red, and Calimist.
The menu also includes chips, garlic cheese buns, rice krispies bars, chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Like the I-25-and-Fillmore restaurant, the new PowersPointe location also has a full-service bar.

Scott Jennings, the founder of Cheba Hut, told The Gazette in 2019 that the name and marijuana theme set it apart from other sandwich stores.
