The winners were chosen Native’s Franchise Support Team as well as local members of the media. The winning sandwich and drink will be appear on Native’s menus nationwide for a limited time starting in August.

“Final Cut: Native was not only a fun and energetic event, it gave us a look at the creative minds of some of our employees, which resulted in some truly tasty food and drinks,” said CEO Dan Chaon, who attended the event. 

“When I came up with the Southwest Chicken Stack Sandwich, I definitely didn’t imagine myself traveling to Arizona to make it for the head of our company and media members,” said Robert Wisnecki. “It was such a great experience and I can’t wait for all of our guests to taste it themselves.
