MADISON (WKOW) -- If you didn’t know National Sandwich Day was a thing, prepare yourself and plan on going out for sandwiches.
On Thursday, Rickie Wetzel, District Manager with Potbelly Sandwich Shop stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to share his expertise in sandwich making.
National Sandwich Day is observed annually on November 3. The sandwich is believed to be the namesake of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, following the claim that he was the inventor of the sandwich. This day honors one of America’s most popular lunch items.
Potbelly is known for its warm, toasty, made-to-order sandwiches. Some fan favorites include A Wreck, a variation of an Italian sub, and the Pizza Sandwich, all your favorite pizza toppings piled on a sub. At Potbelly, there are endless combinations of ingredients that all result in a delicious, custom-made lunch, toasted while you wait.
To celebrate, Subway is offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal that also supports a good cause. The sandwich chain says anyone who buys a sub and drink on Thursday will get a free sub of equal or lesser price.
In addition, Subway will donate a meal to the nonprofit Feeding America, which supports food pantries and soup kitchens.
