TooJay's is getting some work done.

The Florida-based deli chain that serves classic comfort food has announced it's getting a makeover.

Founded in 1981, that makes TooJay's 34, certainly not too old for a little work, according to South Florida standards.

According to TooJay's CEO Jim Vinz, the chain will begin a remodel on several locations, starting with the popular Coral Springs location at 2800 N. University Dr. According to Vinz, the chain is going for a, "more contemporary look, while maintaining a timeless vintage feel."

Vinz says he chose the Coral Springs restaurant as the first to undergo a facelift because of TooJay's long-standing presence in the community. "We feel the neighborhood represents the perfect mix of multi-generational families who will appreciate the updated decor while also providing us feedback. “If all goes well, other locations will follow suit."

The Coral Springs restaurant will close on August 22 for the construction work and will re-open on August 27. Both the location’s dine-in and take out service will be suspended during the remodel, but catering orders will be fulfilled with the help of nearby TooJay's delis.

Two more TooJay's will be remodeled in 2015, with three or four more slated to get a new look in 2016. More info on exact restaurant locations to get freshened up will be announced, as we receive news.

While the iconic chain may be changing its looks, the menu will remain the same, retaining the deli favorites customers have grown to love, including the iconic Reuben, which is one of the deli shop's specialty sandwiches.
