We’re heading into winter and Americans are craving warm and hearty comfort food to keep them warm as the temperatures drop. And to help Blimpie franchisees deliver what their customers crave, Blimpie has rolled out their all-new, zesty take on a Cuban sandwich. This sandwich has a tasty pretzel bread base and is loaded with ham, pulled pork and Swiss cheese. The whole delicious concoction is topped off with mustard and Blimpie’s very own Mojito aioli.
This new Cuban sandwich is a trendy way to enjoy a meal. Cuba is featured more and more in mainstream media, and Americans are craving bold and exciting flavors from our Caribbean neighor. As the US smooths political ties with Cuba, it’s high time Americans started exploring Cuban culture and flavors.
In recent months, Cuban culture has wound itself into America’s pop culture. Cuban food in particular has taken Hollywood by storm. The hit movie Chef centers around the adventures of a Cuban food truck. The story follows Chef Carl Casper, played by Jon Favreau, as he quits his position at a high-end Los Angeles restaurant and sets out to re-ignite his passion for cooking. Casper ends up in Miami and joins forces with his ex-wife, played by Sofia Vergara, to open a food truck specializing in Cuban food. Americans couldn’t get enough of the exciting story line. The new-found enthusiasm for Cuban food has spilled over into the restaurant industry.
Blimpie is one of many restaurants in the US to capitalize on this Cuban food craze. The difference is Blimpie’s Cuban spin features incredibly fresh and tasty ingredients. Capitalizing on a tasty food trend with an LTO that is a perfect fit for the upcoming winter months? Just one more way Kahala is providing unparalled support for all Blimpie franchisees.
