Earl of Sandwich® restaurants have created made-to-order, freshly baked sandwiches like no other. Our menu pays tribute to the art of the sandwich. From The Original 1762® to our fresh salads, we use the highest quality ingredients in everything we serve.
In 1762, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, invented the meal that changed dining forever. As the story goes, he was playing cards and did not want to leave the gaming table to eat. He asked for a serving of roast beef to be placed between two slices of bread so he could eat with his hands. Thus, the Sandwich was born. Some 250 years later, Earl of Sandwich restaurants have taken that idea and crafted it into a made-to-order, freshly baked sandwich like no other.
In 2004, Lord John Sandwich, the 11th Earl of Sandwich and his son, the Honorable Orlando Montagu, direct descendants of the inventor of the sandwich, partnered with Robert Earl, founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood, to launch the Earl of Sandwich restaurants.
The menu was designed around fresh, simple, quality ingredients that combine to form The World’s Greatest Hot Sandwich! Sandwiches are made when ordered to ensure optimal taste and freshness, and the signature artisan bread finishes baking after the sandwich ingredients have been added, which enhances the flavors. A full range of salads, wraps, sides, soups, desserts and beverages is also on offer. In addition, a breakfast menu has been developed for locations with morning traffic.
We provide an extensive training and support plan for our franchisees which includes:
