SUBWAY® celebrates World Sandwich Day

World Sandwich Day is set to take New Zealand by storm on Monday 3 November when the lunchbox staple is celebrated in all its glory.

The history of the sandwich is believed to date back to the 18th century when the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, is said to have asked his servant to make him a meal of meat placed between two slices of bread. Legend has it from that day on people began to request, “give me the same as sandwich.”

Subway® Restaurants are excited to support the big day with one day only promotions and deliveries of six foot giant subs. Each six foot sub is made from 16 Subway Footlong® rolls plaited together and baked. Each six foot sub takes 30 minutes to assemble and feeds up to 20 people!

With over two million sandwich combinations available from Subway®, World Sandwich Day is the perfect opportunity to pop in store and try something new. The Chicken Classic is a Kiwi favourite and for one day only Subway® is offering the Six Inch® for only $6 and the Footlong® for $9. All you have to do is download the Subcard® App or like the Subway® NZ Facebook page and show the QR code in store to redeem this special.

Celebrate World Sandwich Day over a picnic with friends, surprising a loved one with a tasty sub for lunch, or creating a sandwich with toppings you’ve never tried before. Whatever your preference, embrace the almighty sandwich at your local Subway® Restaurant this November.
