Chick-fil-A Didn’t Realize What Day ‘National Sandwich Day’ Was On
Oops, Chick-fil-A had to take back a statement encouraging folks to stop by and order a sandwich on 'National Sandwich Day'.
Why? Because sandwich day is on November 3rd, which happens to be a Sunday.
KENS5 reports that the chain sent out a promotional email reading "Calling all sandwich lovers, some prefer it grilled, others fancy the original. No matter which Chick-fil-A sandwich you love, order yours on November 3 for National Sandwich Day."
When they realized it fell on the one day of the week they are famously closed they issued an apology.
"We recently sent an email that included a message about National Sandwich Day, which naturally we were very excited about," the follow-up email said. "We didn't realize it falls on Sunday when we are closed. We apologize for the confusion and hope to see you soon (Monday-Saturday)."
It just so happens (or it was planned) that November 3rd is when popeyes will return their chicken sandwich. Which of course started the great chicken war of 2019. Many lives were lost. Not really.
I think I'm going to get a sub.
