The Sandwich Trend: Convenience, Economy, Health, And Exotic Varieties

June 5, 2012: 10:17 AM EST
Americans have discovered – or re-discovered – the convenience and economy of sandwiches, and restaurants have caught on to the trend. Pizza Hut, for example, has added sandwiches to their menu, but with a twist. They package sausage, pepperoni, ham, Italian steak and Buffalo chicken into a rolled pizza crust sandwich. A Technomic report found that 41 percent of consumers ages 25 to 34 want restaurants to offer mini-sandwiches that can be eaten as a snack or light meal, like McDonald's wrap sandwiches. The most popular sandwich in the U.S. these days? According to a food consultant, it’s the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, a concoction of grilled pork, chicken or beef, pickled vegetables and cilantro.
