Canadians who have an appetite for ethnic flavors and the desire to fulfill their flavorful 'Sandwiches' need to look no further than SUBWAY® restaurants and their new Korean BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. Available for a limited time across Canada at participating SUBWAY® sandwich shops, the sandwich opens the door to a world of BBQ Canadians never knew existed - inspired by the flavors of Korea.
According to a recent survey conducted by Mintel1, a market intelligence agency, 72% of Canadians are turning to ethnic-inspired dishes to break mealtime monotony with 38% specifically interested in experiencing Korean dishes.
