Sandwich chain introduces four paninis on fresh-baked ciabatta bread
TORONTO, April 18, 2017 /CNW/ - It's a great time to be a sandwich lover! Subway® is introducing four new paninis to its everyday menu. Available at participating restaurants across the nation, the new gourmet paninis are served on fresh-baked ciabatta bread featuring quality meats, fresh vegetables and warm melted cheese which are then pressed to crispy perfection.
Each of the four mouth-watering paninis are free from artificial colours and flavours and bursting with a selection of the fresh vegetables, the trademark of the sandwich chain. The gourmet lineup includes:
Chipotle Steak & Cheese: Tender, 100 per cent Canadian steak topped with green peppers, red onions and cheddar cheese that's grilled to perfection on the new ciabatta bread.
Triple Cheese: Think comfort food meets cheesy goodness. Cheddar, Swiss and Monterey cheeses are layered with baby spinach, juicy red tomatoes and crunchy red onions.
Chicken Cordon Bleu: Layers of Canadian ham, grilled white meat chicken strips and Swiss cheese are topped with baby spinach and tomatoes and drizzled with a creamy honey mustard.
Italian B.M.T.® Melt: The rich flavours of Genoa salami, pepperoni and ham are layered in warm, melty cheddar cheese, all topped with spinach, tomato and red onion and drizzled with house sandwich sauce.
"The new Subway® gourmet paninis are a declaration of our commitment to the sandwich," says Cristina Wells, Subway Canada Senior Marketing Director. "It's an exciting time at Subway®. We have a new look and feel coming to our restaurants which customers will be able to see come to life through our first cross-country sampling tour to spread the word and through our updated packaging and uniforms in our sandwich shops."
The Paninis will be sampled coast-to-coast aboard the Panini Express, a first-of-its-kind transparent food truck, which begins its cross-country tour next week in Toronto, making its way east to Charlottetown and all the way back to Vancouver in the west. The custom food truck will provide Canadians a glimpse of the preparation and process involved with preparing the paninis – right down to the chopping of fresh vegetables, just like in-restaurants – while also providing delicious samples to consumers.
The new paninis are available across Canada as a permanent menu item. The lineup starts at $3.99 per panini.
Canadians can follow the Panini Express by following its journey on Subway® Canada's social channels at www.facebook.com/SubwayCanada or follow @SubwayCanada, #PaniniExpress.
