Sandwich in some time for savings Saturday.
Nov. 3 is National Sandwich Day and like other made-up food holidays, restaurants are celebrating with discounts.
According to a Jersey Mike’s Subs Trend Tracker report, 98 percent of the nearly 53,000 people surveyed said they eat at least one sandwich a week and 39 percent said they eat three or more per week.
The survey also showed 76 percent of people crave subs for lunch and 20 percent said dinner was their preferred time.
Ranker, a crowd-sourced voting platform, found the top five sandwich chains based on votes were: Jersey Mike’s, Firehouse Subs, Jimmy John’s, Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Which Wich.
Based on last year’s sales, National Sandwich Day was ranked as the 68th highest sales day of the year for sandwich shops. Customers spent 33 percent more than average, according to Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications for Womply, a small business software provider.
