A DeLorean in the basement
Fitting that our building would give guests a glimpse into the past of Sugar House. There is a DeLorean in the basement, after all. No, really.
Our now-a-days sandwich shop was once the bustling Petty Ford Motor Company, circa the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Here, fine Ford automobiles were serviced, sold and marketed to commuters entering the valley. The property is still owned by the Petty family, who have stashed away a handful of iconic vehicles in a secret underground garage. While we’ve done good to honor the history in our design, guests still have no idea that their 3 o’clock sandwich snarf is taking place over an original and intact Model T Ford. (OK, a new steering wheel was added 40 years ago. That said, a glass floor would be pretty neat.)
Gentleman Keith Petty even raised up his 66’ Thunderbird for our opening night. Prompting us to set a projector on it and turn our patio into a drive-in theatre.
Artifacts in the dining room include a wall sconce made from classic Ford hubcaps, mechanics’ tools, and a Trent Call original mural of classic Sugar Houses signage.
