November 3rd honors one of the most convenient and common meals—the sandwich—with its “national day”. John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich (yes, Sandwich), was an 18th century English noble. While taking part in a 24-hour poker game, Montagu instructed a servant to prepare his lunchmeat between two slices of bread so that he could eat it with just one hand, or so the story goes. National Sandwich Day commemorates the birth of the sandwich (and its creator).
We celebrate sandwiches at The Factory Café every day. You can’t go wrong with a classic like a grilled pimento cheese (bacon, optional); and we’ve also served specials like a loaded Italian sandwich, a spicy Steak Melt, a Breakfast Sandwich, and most recently The Factory Burger.
Our new-and-improved White BBQ Chicken Sandwich is filled with chicken that is smoked in The Factory Café’s new Traeger Grill, which uses hardwood chips for incredible flavor. The chicken is served with our updated White BBQ sauce (a North Alabama staple), topped with fresh greens, and sandwiched between two slices of toasted ciabatta bread—baked in-house daily.
Stop by any weekday from 11:00am – 2:00pm for sandwiches and specials, and stay up to date on our ever-changing Daily Menu here.
