Denver-based sandwich chain Quiznos has announced that the sandwiches created for the chain by contestants on The Celebrity Apprentice last week will show up on its menu in more than 5,000 restaurants nationwide.
In the early March episode of the Donald Trump-helmed reality show, teams of contestants had to create versions of Quiznos’ gourmet Sammies sandwiches. The winning team created a sandwich called The Champ, featuring turkey, Cheddar and chipotle mayonnaise topped with a lettuce and tomato garnish.
In addition to The Champ, another “Apprentice” creation, the Cowboy Club, will appear on Quiznos menus. The Cowboy Club features prime rib, mozzarella, sautÃ©ed onions, bacon and chipotle mayonnaise.
Quiznos is also tying in a promotion to its new sandwiches, allowing customers to vote online for their favorite Sammies sandwich for a chance to win a trip for two to New York City to stay at the Trump International Hotel & Tower and see a Broadway play. One hundred runners-up will receive Sammie Combo Meal gift cards valued at $10.
