In honor of National Sandwich Day 2016, Smiling Goose Deli, Subway, and Schlotzsky’s are offering a free sandwich as part of a promotion for a good cause.
National Sandwich Day 2016
A sandwich is one of the best meals you can have. It’s tasty and you can add some of your favorite ingredients to it. In honor of National Sandwich Day, several vendors are offering a free sandwich, and Subway is one of them. Subway is offering a free sub with any purchase of a sub and a drink. With this purchase, Subway will also donate a meal to Feeding America. This promotion is called The Good Deed Feed.
CEO and president of Subway restaurants, Suzanne Greco, released a statement saying, “one in eight Americans are going hungry, and we’re in the business of feeding people. Many of our franchisees have been committed to fighting hunger in their communities for years, and we’re proud of The Good Deed Feed and the impact it will have on a national level.”
Snapchat is also on board with this promotion, allowing customers to access a custom National Sandwich Day filter, which is a part of the promotion.
Another café and bakery, Schlotzsky’s, is celebrating National Sandwich Day by treating their guests to a free medium sandwich when they purchase a medium sandwich of equal or lesser value. This is available at all participating Schlotzsky’s restaurants nationwide. It’s a buy-one, get-one offer that includes any medium sandwich on the menu, including all the seven new specialty sandwiches. The idea behind this promotion is to give back to guests and customers, since the Schlotzsky’s brand was built on a sandwich.
Smiling Moose Rocky Mountain Deli will be offering customers a free drink and bag of chips with any sandwich purchased on November 3rd. There are 17 locations including restaurants in North Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado.
Origin of the Sandwich
If you’re wondering why November 3rd is National Sandwich Day, it’s because a man named John Montagu was born on this day. He was alive in the 18th century and was known as the “Earl of Sandwich.” He liked his meals to go so that he never missed time for gambling, so he decided to put his dinner meat between two slices of bread. Interesting, isn’t it?
If you love a good sandwich, enjoy National Sandwich Day and be sure to check out these vendors to receive these great specials.
