Our Top 10 Sandwiches for National Sandwich Day

November 3 is National Sandwich Day, which provides the perfect reason to showcase our Food Channel top 10 sandwiches. According to Sandwich America, nearly 7 in 10 restaurants offer some type of sandwich on the menu and Americans eat an average of 3.7 sandwiches per week.

Our consumer insights partner, Culturewaves, has been tracking trends in portable foods since the early ’90s. Sandwiches have been around since the 1st century or earlier and have enjoyed a surge in popularity lately.

Once more valued for its portability and convenience, today’s sandwich takes on a variety of forms, with ingredient options limited only by your imagination. Our favorites include classics with a contemporary twist and those reflecting the flavor explosion of ethnic influences.
