Milford, CT, January 31, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Today the SUBWAY® restaurant chain selected fifty winning toasts to the Super Bowl as part of the Super Bowl XXXIX Post a Toast Contest. Two grand-prize winning toasts were chosen by a team of Foxsports.com judges and will be read by FOX commentators during the pre-game show on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 6). All fifty toasts can be read at www.subwaypostatoast.com.
More than two-thirds of all Americans describe themselves as NFL fans and even more demonstrate their devotion by watching the Super Bowl, the highest ranked televised event of the year. In celebration of the nationwide launch of its new Fresh Toasted Subs, the SUBWAY® restaurant chain invited fans to enter the contest by submitting their original toasts honoring the Super Bowl.
The two grand-prize winning “toasters” are Tom Speight, of Walpole, Mass. and Adam Pace, of Oxford, Miss. Speight, a 45-year-old technical support manager, will bring his wife to the game. Pace, a 21-year-old pharmacy student at the University of Mississippi, will share the Super Bowl experience with his father.
“This is a true dream-come-true for me,” said Speight. “Not only is it a chance to see the Super Bowl, but my favorite team is in the game this year and I’ll be there with them, rooting them on to victory.”
“Going to the Super Bowl is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Pace. “I can’t wait to get to Jacksonville with my dad and be a part of all the excitement. I’m so thankful to Subway for giving me this opportunity!
In addition to having their toasts posted online, the forty-eight first-prize winners will also receive coupons to enjoy new Fresh Toasted Subs from SUBWAY® Restaurants as well as NFL.com gift certificates.
SUBWAY® Restaurants, which already distinguishes its submarine sandwiches by baking a variety of gourmet inspired breads fresh daily in every restaurant, is now offering its customers the option to toast their subs. In what is now one of the most significant new developments in the chain’s history, SUBWAY® Fresh Toasted Subs are currently available in all of the nearly 20,000 SUBWAY® restaurants in North America, as well as in many other SUBWAY® restaurants throughout the world.
“The new Fresh Toasted Subs from SUBWAY® are perfect for lunch or dinner,” said Chris Carroll, Senior Vice President of Marketing for the SUBWAY® Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust. “With the Super Bowl XXXIX Post a Toast Contest we’re celebrating the excitement and enthusiasm of true Super Bowl fans as well as a great new choice for SUBWAY® customers across the country.”
Super Bowl XXXIX Post a Toast Contest: Winning Toasts
On Super Bowl Sunday I am glued to my chair. From pregame analysis to the coin in the air.
The big game begins my heart rate increases. If my TV goes out I'll fall to pieces. Is it the
greatest joy in my life? I'll say it is, but don't tell my wife.
To the crunching of sacks and the munching of snacks. To one-minute ads and quarterback Dads. To this pageant of pigskin, this bruising ballet. To freedom, to football, the American Way. Let’s all lift a glass to Super Sunday.
The SUBWAY® restaurant chain is the world's largest submarine sandwich franchise, with more than 22,500 locations in 79 countries. In 2002, the SUBWAY® chain surpassed McDonald’s in the number of restaurants open in the United States and Canada. Headquartered in Milford, Conn., the SUBWAY® restaurant chain was co-founded by Fred DeLuca and Dr. Peter Buck in 1965. That partnership marked the beginning of a remarkable journey—one that made it possible for thousands of individuals to build and succeed in their own business. The SUBWAY® chain was named the number one franchise opportunity in all categories by Entrepreneur magazine in its Annual Franchise 500 ranking for 2005—for the 13th time in 17 years!
