lease of Sun Diego's current store in favor of a tenant with a national

assure the employment of approximately 35 valued individuals as well.
Carlsbad is an incredible community with a deep surfing heritage. Sun
Diego has the utmost admiration for that heritage, as well as the
history of the Twin Inn building. It is their intention to help tell
that story at this new store location.

that they do business with for over 30 years, and they hope to do so for
many years to come Sun Diego is currently working out a lease with a
restaurant to share the building with them, and hopes to be able to
share some more specific details soon.
