Minnesota Restaurants Introduce Sandwich Duos, Host Pop Up Picnics
MINNEAPOLIS, MN–(Marketwire – July 20, 2010) – A hot bowl of noodles hits the spot every time for some people. Others crave more variety. Noodles & Company is catering to every pallet with the introduction of its Sandwich Duos, inspired by some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.
“We knew there was something to the idea, because our restaurant team members have been making sandwiches with our ingredients behind the scenes for years,” said Tessa Stamper, Noodles’ culinary manager and registered dietician. “We also understand that people aren’t always in the mood for pasta, so we’re offering the same fresh, tasty ingredients found in our noodle dishes in the form of a sandwich.”
The sandwiches are available in four Duo varieties:
The Mmmeatball was inspired from Spaghetti & Meatballs and includes five large meatballs, spicy marinara sauce and parmesan cheese on a ciabatta roll
The Wisconsin Cheesesteak ties to the best-selling Wisconsin Mac & Cheese and includes sautéed beef, the infamous Mac & Cheese sauce, cheddar jack cheese and sautéed red onion, red bell pepper and mushrooms on flatbread
The Med was born from The Med salad and includes chicken, mushrooms, spinach, red bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, Zippy Med dressing, cilantro and feta wrapped in flat bread. The Veggie Med is similar to The Med sandwich, but is served vegetarian.
The Spicy Chicken Caesar is similar to the classic Caesar Salad but with a kick. It features romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, tortilla strips and a spicy Caesar dressing on flatbread.
Visit any Minnesota Noodles & Company restaurant to order one, or keep an eye out for ‘Pop up Picnics’ around the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Noodles & Company will host picnics that will literally pop up on short notice and give people the opportunity to try the new line of sandwiches for free. Location hints will be given on Noodles’ Twitter (@noodlessandwich) and Facebook pages.
Each Sandwich comes as a Duo, which includes a side soup or salad. They range in price from $5.75 – $6.95. The Sandwich Duos are currently available in Colorado, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Ohio Noodles & Company restaurants, and will expand in additional markets this summer and fall.
