Are you sitting down? Good, because on Wednesday, June 20th Togo’s is officially losing its mind. We’re giving away a free sandwich to every customer.

You heard right. It’s our way of thanking loyal customers and welcoming new ones to Togo’s. While we can’t divulge all of our Free Sandwich secrets right now, we can tell you this:

If you’re in the Eastern half of the U.S. (including Chicago) you’ll enjoy our famous Hot Pastrami.

And if you’re in the Western U.S, you’ll get a chance to try our new California Club.

Stay tuned for more details . . .

I'm free!

don’t know that this is news people really need to sit down for (even though it concerns my favorite kind of food — Free!), but it is indeed true.

On Wednesday, June 20, 2001, the TOGO’s sandwich chain will be giving away free sandwiches. The offer comes with a typical set of restrictions, however:

  • You can’t order any kind of sandwich you want — you can only get a free California Club sandwich (on the west coast) or a free Hot Pastrami sandwich (on the east coast). Where TOGO’s considers the dividing line between east and west to be isn’t specified.
  • The offer is only good for a few hours each day: 5 P.M.8 P.M. in the west and 11 A.M.3 P.M. in the east.
  • The usual limitations apply: While suppplies last. Limit one sandwich per customer. Offer good at participating stores only.
