Schlotzsky’s Unveils First-Ever Hand-Carved Sandwiches

Schlotzsky’s transitions to the spring season with the announcement of a completely new line of limited-time-only Hand-Carved Sandwiches. From now until May 27, the home of The Originalround toasted sandwich will feature three new signature Hand-Carved Sandwiches – the Roasted Turkey with Avocado & Harvati Cheese, the Hickory Smoked Ham with Bacon, Harvati Chesse & Honey Dijon, and the Braised Beef with Mushrooms & Fire-Roasted Vegetables.

“We have been looking to get into hand-carved meats for quite sometime and it was important that we got it right. This trio of delicious sandwiches is the culmination of extensive research and development,” said Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s. “Authenticity is huge for us; all of the meats on these sandwiches are hand carved, fresh in the restaurant to provide thick, irregular cuts.”

The three new, signature sandwiches include:

  • Roasted Turkey with Avocado & Havarti Cheese:

Thick slices of hand-carved roasted turkey breast, tomato, bibb lettuce, avocado slices and shredded havarti cheese with mayonnaise served on Schlotzsky’s signature toasted sourdough bun.

  • Hickory Smoked Ham with Bacon, Havarti Cheese & Honey Dijon:

Slices of hand-carved hickory smoked ham, applewood bacon, hearts of romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion and shredded Havarti cheese with honey dijon mustard served on Schlotzsky’s signature toasted sourdough bun.

  • Braised Beef with Mushrooms & Fire-Roasted Vegetables:

Hearty slices of hand-carved braised beef, portobello mushrooms, fire-roasted vegetables and both swiss and mozzarella cheese with chipotle mayonnaise served on Schlotzsky’s toasted signature sourdough bun.
