Baggin's Gourmet Sandwiches at 5056 E. Broadway Blvd. is moving down the street to the former Jason's Deli location at 5420 E. Broadway Blvd.
Norma Gentry, who handles public relations for Baggin's, said the move is expected to happen in mid-September. A closing date for the current Baggin's location has not been set.
The new location has twice the seating of the current Baggin's location, said Gentry. She said additional details would be available after plans were finalized.
Officials from Jason’s Deli had planned to reopen the location, which closed in May due to financial problems with the franchisee.
Daniel Helfman, a spokesman for Jason’s Deli, said the company is now looking for a different spot for a second Tucson location.
“It’s unfortunate the Broadway location did not work out, but we look forward to surprising Tucson with more locations soon,” said Helfman.
