Insufficient Business Demise of Sufficient Grounds

sufficient groundsIf you picked up yesterday’s issue of the Daily Cal and decided to test out Sufficient Grounds [1], the winner for “Best Sandwich,” [2] you’ll see that it in fact no longer exists. Despite their new colorful, seizure-inducing marquee board, Sather Lane has pretty much turned into a ghost town and Sufficient Grounds is just the latest business casualty.

Seems that the only business that can endure recession frugality and the ridiculously high rent (around $7,500 per month) is student fave Yogurt Park. And really, why walk any further when the best fro-yo in Berkeley is right there? (And is it just us or does there seem to be an inverse relationship between the success of the economy and the success of yogurt shops?)

What made their sandwiches so unique was the owner’s special bread recipe (literally handed down through generations), and it seems that tough times have led him to consider selling it for a “hefty” sum. Die-hard fans, it’s not too late to get out your wallets. The owner is also considering reopening in Berkeley or Southern California.

We can’t help but wonder whether the sandwiches that could serve a nuclear family or the interminable donut samples have anything to do with the closing. Nevertheless, we will mourn the loss of your original honey wheat bread.¬†Sufficient Grounds, you will always be more than sufficient in our eyes. *Sniff*
