      Exercise your right to vote...for a sandwich

      Is this America's next favorite sandwich?

      If you think the rest of the country is missing out on your delicious sandwich creation then this is your moment.

      Sandwich enthusiasts across the country now have the opportunity to put their sandwich-making skills to the test as Panera??s Sandwich Showdown contest moves into the final voting phase.

      The event gives fans of culinary creativity throughout Toledo the chance to have their homemade concoction named the best sandwich in America.

      The winner will take home $10,000 cash, $500 worth of Panera gift cards, free Panera Bread bagels for a year and will have their sandwich on the menu for a limited time at participating Panera Bread bakery-cafes in Toledo and throughout the United States.

      "Panera Bread has always taken pride in offering a variety of hand-crafted sandwich choices, all prepared on freshly-baked breads," said Garry Hiser, District Manager for Panera Bread. "Our Toledo customers know what makes a great-tasting sandwich, and have come to expect nothing but the best from our bakery-cafes. Now we??re asking them to vote on their idea of a perfect sandwich."

      Through November 11, sandwich enthusiasts can vote on the top twenty original sandwich recipes online at their website.

      "Panera Bread is dedicated to finding the right combination of ingredients and breads for our signature sandwiches, and we know there are aspiring chefs throughout the country who are ready to do the same," said Garry Hiser. "We can??t wait to find the next great sandwich."
