Putting the "grand" in grandwich

In 2011, Nicole Infante first presented the idea for Grandwich at a 5x5 Night competition. Since then, this sandwich competition has grown with support from local organizations who wanted to help make Nicole's concept a reality. Over 50 different businesses have competed in the competition's five years of existence, many returning year after year to take their shot at the "Grandwich Winner" title.
