Bad basil sandwiches

By Lucia August 7, 2012

Did you get a bad basil sandwich from us this month? If so, we’re really sorry. This sandwich should be really, really awesome, and it hasn’t been. Couple issues we’ve had: 1.) the quality of the basil spread has varied a lot across locations. Some spread was really fibrous, some was sort of bland. The recipe wasn’t being followed correctly everywhere (bunch of people weren’t adding salt). 2.) A bunch of you were saying the sandwich wasn’t filling or satisfying enough.

So we’re making some changes to this. You should be able to see these changes today:

1.) Basil spread is going to be made every morning in the kitchen and sent to locations rather than being made on board each location. This means you won’t smell basil in the morning on the trucks, but it will let us keep an eye on the quality.

2.) We’re going to be adding mayo and adding another slice of havarti

3.) More salt on the cucumbers.

Let us know if you have this today if it’s improved. We’ll be taking note of these changes for next year when this sandwich comes around again. And for those of you asking, the rumor is true. There’s a new seasonal sandwich coming on soon.
