June 21, 2012 // Franchising.com // Available as a Limited Time Offer (LTO) menu item, Firehouse Subs® announces the addition of the King's Hawaiian® Pork & Slaw sandwich at all 515 Firehouse Subs restaurants. Breaking sales records in Jacksonville, Fla., Greenville/Spartanburg, S.C., and Phoenix, Ariz., Firehouse Subs recognized consumer appeal and decided to offer the flavorful fare nationwide.
King's Hawaiian Pork & Slaw combines hardwood smoked pork and Sargento® pepper jack cheese, steamed to perfection, then topped with homemade tangy Hawaiian coleslaw piled high on a King's Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet sandwich bun.
This is the first time King's Hawaiian, whose founders created the recipe for Original Hawaiian Sweet Bread, and whose dinner rolls are the No. 1 brand in the country, has partnered with a national restaurant chain on their sandwich buns.
To entice customers, Firehouse Subs is hosting a contest with video submissions for a chance to win a trip for two to the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Firehouse Subs, founded in Jacksonville, Fla., by former firefighting brothers Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, is a 515-unit fast casual restaurant chain. Firehouse Subs offers oversized portions of premium hand-sliced meats and cheeses, steamed to make the flavors burst, then piled high with fresh produce atop a toasted sub roll. The restaurants reflect the authentic firefighter heritage of the founding family's 200 years of firefighting service.
