After receiving his bachelor's degree in business and marketing, Erik Johnson tried his hand at accounting, security, food service and real estate before purchasing a 600-square-foot store in Scotts Valley, California, back in 1973. With help from his family, Johnson founded Erik's Deli Café, a quick-service and catering restaurant that served sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods. Johnson expanded his chain throughout Northern California before selling the first franchise in 1986.
