March 01, 2011 // Franchising.com // San Jose, Calif. – Togo's Sandwiches, a "West Coast Original" since 1971 serving big, made to order sandwiches stuffed with the freshest ingredients, announced today the introduction of the new limited time featured sandwich to the Toasted line up, the Lemon Pepper Tuna Melt. Lemon Pepper Tuna returns by popular demand each spring but this year it returns as a melt with cheddar cheese on March 9th.
The Lemon Pepper Tuna Melt features 100% Albacore Tuna seasoned with tangy lemon, cracked black pepper, diced celery and red onions. It's then topped with melted cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, red onions, pickles and pepperoncinis on toasted San Francisco style sourdough bread.
"The classic #12 Lemon Pepper Tuna cold sandwich is a guest favorite and they wait for its return each spring," said Renae Scott, vice president of branding and marketing for Togo's. "Now guests can get the great taste of the popular Lemon Pepper Tuna as a Melt in our new Toasted line up."
For guests that are looking for seafood or non-meat alternatives during the Lent time period, Togo's will offer the 6" regular #12 Lemon Pepper Tuna sandwich as the Friday daily special for $3.99.
Togo's was founded in 1971 by a young college student in San Jose, California with a big appetite and a little money. He started making sandwiches the way he liked them – big, made to order and stuffed with the freshest ingredients. Soon there were lines out the door and Togo's was well on it's way to becoming a west coast original. Now, almost 40 years later, Togo's still makes sandwiches the way we did back then. In addition to great sandwiches, Togo's makes hand-tossed salads, wraps, soups and desserts.
