National Sandwich Day is Tuesday November 3rd and is dedicated to John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, following the claim he was the innovator of it. The legend has it, during the year 1762, the earl commanded his cook to make a meal which wouldn’t interrupt his gambling and would require no cutlery either. The cook served 2 toast pieces containing sliced meat in the middle. It provided the earl with a free one hand to keep continuing his gambling game! During the great depression sandwich, its making felt in America and since it has been an all-time favorite food of Americans and most of the rest world alike.

The event provides the perfect opportunity for professional sandwich makers to share details of their businesses visa social media. Companies are encouraged to offer special deals and promotions related to special sandwiches that they offer and share details of their promotions on all media sites.

It is a great time to celebrate the mighty sandwich by creating special fillings and combinations to tempt hungry people and perhaps even organizing a sandwich party to help add a festive feel to the day.

Of course, anyone who has a love for sandwiches will want to make sure that they keep a keen eye out for deals and promotions on National Sandwich Day. Some well known companies that are set to join in the fun with special deals include Subway, McDonald’s, Quiznos and Firehouse Subs.
