The Story of SuperNatural
In the beginning…Zeus the Greek God of Awesomeness created 4 really semi-awesome demi-gods, ugh I mean dudes who wanted to make a great product and an awesome experience for the hungry public. Our concept of “Sea to Sandwich” is to make fresh made to order gourmet seafood sandwiches using fresh local ingredients from in and around San Diego. We want aFISHo’Nados to experience a taste of San Diego when biting into one of our creations, to accomplish this we use fresh & local sustainable seafood, cheeses, bread, and greens from local vendors. It took us about a year trying different combinations of proteins, sauces and breads until we found the right “hook”. At the same time we ask ourselves what should we name our little venture? After shooting down the suggestion “Just above average sandwiches”, we came up with the name the Kraken. Kraken because in urban lingo means, “let’s get it started” and is also a play off the pop-culture hit phrase “Release the Kraken!” But if we named ourselves Kraken sandwiches then what would we name the sandwiches themselves? That’s when we decided instead to name ourselves “SuperNatural Sandwiches” and that every sandwich would be named after a supernatural creature because of the mythical flavors we hope to deliver. Sandwiches that are Super in taste, natural in ingredients, and SuperNatural in the taste you would experience!

Cast of Characters
Christian Eggert the “NecroMancer” of SuperNatural. His prior career was sitting at a desk on a computer pushing binary 1’s & 0’s. Christian gave up the keyboard to pick up a spatula and sauté pan and headed to culinary school. Now he’s the mad wizard behind the SuperNatural Experience. Christian is also the “face” of SuperNatural, not because of the dude’s great smile but as any businessperson can attest, with any young start-up there is bound to be mistakes and oh boy there’s been plenty of mistakes. So when the grease hits the fan, we like to deflect all blame, criticism, and problems to good ole Christian. Thanks Buddy!
Tony Nguyen is the “Dream Catcher” of SuperNatural. He’s always dreaming of the next delicious off the wall concoction to be the next in the line of SuperNatural creations. With dreamy ideas like a Kobe short rib and lobster slider, there will be no shortages of surprises and creativity to come to the SuperNatural menu in 2013. Also known as somewhat of a Chef groupie, probably developed that stalker trait early on while working at supply chain heavyweights, US Foods & Sysco Foods and walking into numerous restaurants on unsuspecting chefs. Tony has a background in the food industry well over 15 plus years so who knows how long that fan boy list of his is.
Chris Perzichino is an all around good guy and our “glue” guy. Chris does a little bit of this and a lot of that to keep the wheels of SuperNatural’s butter churning. Chris has a B.S., umm we mean a B.A. degree in accounting from SDSU, go Aztecs! Past work history is pouring heavy drinks to thirsty patrons. Our future “Shaman” will be the person responsible for pairing our SuperNatural Experience with craft beers from our fine local breweries. Chris is married, but has a huge man-crush on Tom Brady. But hey, then again who doesn’t? Even though Chris is from Boston and a huge Patriots fan, we here at SuperNatural tolerate and don’t hold that against him…for now.
Anthony Tran likes to be known as the “Shrimp Daddy”, have you seen the way this guy cleans up the shrimp cocktails at the “all you can eat” buffets before? His education includes a minor degree is something or another at U.N.L.V, no not the University of Las Vegas but rather the University of Northern Linda Vista also known as Mesa community college. Anthony has no real life skills; no culinary skills whatsoever unless you count watching countless hours of food channel as cooking and still live with his mommy. Not sure why we keep him around, maybe for the fact that he said he once saw Bigfoot and has the pictures to prove it. Hey buddy we’re still waiting for those pics.
