Restaurants nationwide offer free 6" Gyro for one day only
TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Quiznos, the pioneer of the toasted sandwich, has gone way back in time to discover Gyrocleese, faux Greek god and inventor of the ever popular Gyro! To celebrate, Quiznos is making history with the introduction of two new modern gyro options. Inspired by an ancient Greek legendary tale of the gyro, Quiznos will offer customers the opportunity to try its new gyro sub or wrap for free with any purchase on October 25 at all Canadian locations.
The Quiznos gyro lineup starts with seasoned beef and lamb that is slow roasted by the Greek god-like experts at Kronos for five hours on a traditional, open Greek rotisserie and then carved into authentic gyro slices before serving.
Quiznos has put its own spin on these limited time gyros by offering guests two distinctive approaches to this traditional meal:
- Gyro Whole Wheat Wrap: Inspired by the traditional gyro served by Zeus or his human friends in Greek street food carts, Quiznos folds flavourful, seasoned beef and lamb into a whole wheat wrap, tops it with lettuce, tomatoes, and creamy tzatziki sauce.
- Gyro Sub Sandwich: For those who prefer their gyro to act more like a Greek "hero" sandwich, Quiznos layers slices of seasoned beef and lamb into its traditional toasted sesame sub and tops it with lettuce, tomatoes, and creamy tzatziki sauce.
"We have always been about bold and innovative flavours and our new gyro menu lineup again offers an extraordinary limited time product for our customers," said Ron McRae, Director of Marketing. "To celebrate the new gyros we built on the Quiznos brand, committed to fun and great tasting food."
Average retail prices for each Quiznos gyro menu item are:
- Gyro Sub or Whole Wheat Wraps
- 6"--$6.49; 9"-- $7.99; 12"-- $9.49*
Both gyro options, along with the entire Quiznos menu, are eligible to accrue points on Quiznos' new loyalty mobile app, Toasty Points. The app is available for download on iOS and Android devices at quiznos.ca/toastypoints, and signing up automatically rewards guests with a free six-inch Quiznos sub, with any purchase.
