April 09, 2015 // Franchising.com // AUSTIN, Texas – For Americans who find Tax Day stressful, Schlotzsky’s is making the day “Lotz Better” with free food. On April 15, participating Schlotzsky’s restaurants nationwide will give away one free small The Original® sandwich with the purchase of a 32 oz. drink and a bag of chips.*
“Tax day has a lot of negative connotations associated with it, including paperwork, stress, paying taxes, and more,” said Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s. “This Tax Day, we’re hoping to make our guests’ lives ‘Lotz Better’ by giving them a ‘tax break’ to enjoy with their favorite sandwich for free.”
As part of the brand’s “Tax Day Bites” social media campaign, guests are encouraged to take a photo inside the restaurant with their free sandwich and upload it to Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram, using the hashtag #TaxDayBites.
The Original sandwich features 13 fresh, flavorful ingredients served on Schlotzsky’s legendary Fresh-from-Scratch® oven-baked sourdough buns. The Original is topped with lean smoked ham, genoa and cotto salamis, melted cheddar, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. It’s layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and signature dressing to create a truly one-of-a kind sandwich.
At Schlotzsky’s, guests enjoy more than 15 different signature sandwiches served oven-baked on legendary Fresh-from-Scratch oven-baked sourdough buns, as well as gourmet pizzas built upon its unique sourdough crust, artisan flatbreads, freshly made-to-order tossed salads, a variety of savory soups and delectable desserts. Schlotzsky’s recently unveiled a new Italian-inspired “Viva l’Italia” menu, which includes four new oven-baked pasta dishes, three specialty ciabatta sandwiches and a new gourmet pizza, along with its famous Italian chopped salad.
