#Quiznos Introduces Two BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches Just in Time to Celebrate National #BBQ Month

Just in time to kick off National BBQ Month and then rock your taste buds all summer long, Quiznos, the pioneer of the toasted sandwich, is excited to offer two new BBQ pulled pork sandwiches featuring slow-roasted pork and tasty recipes developed with chefs from the National Pork Board. Both sandwiches are available now through September. To celebrate National BBQ Day on May 16, Quiznos will offer a buy-one-get-one free BBQ pork sandwich to guests.


The Quiznos BBQ pork lineup starts with a lean cut of pork shoulder that is roasted low and slow for six hours, and then hand-pulled before serving. These limited time sandwiches offer guests two distinctive flavor profiles:

·      Southern Style BBQ Pulled Pork: 


Inspired by traditional, southern backyard BBQ pits, Quiznos is bringing back this classic with slow-roasted pulled pork topped with Quiznos’ signature BBQ sauce, yellow mustard, melted mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and tangy pickles.


·      Spicy Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork: 


For those who like more heat and meat, this new sandwich is a fusion of slow-roasted pulled pork, ham, smoky bacon, melted, aged cheddar cheese, jalapeños, sautéed onions, lettuce, tomatoes, Quiznos’ signature Batch 83 four-pepper chili sauce, and chipotle mayo on jalapeño cheddar bread. 


Both BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, along with the entire Quiznos menu, are eligible to accrue points on Quiznos’ new loyalty mobile app, Toasty Points.
