4 Nov

Face-Off runner-up and winner prizes (made by Heidi Kenney of MyPaperCrane.com)

WOW last night’s event with Roxy’s Grilled Cheese was awesome. A major thank you to everyone who came out and made our first ever National Sandwich Day battle such a party! Everyone walked in pumped to eat and it was fun hearing what voters thought as they dropped off their ballots. The final tally is in and we have a winner! Here’s a (kinda fuzzy) video of the awards ceremony:

How we chose a champion: Whoever won two out of the three courses took the prize. Roxy’s won the first and second courses, and Chez won dessert by a landslide. (Roxy’s ran out of dessert by the end of the night, so we stopped counting dessert votes once that happened. With only two courses left on the ballot, from then on we also only counted a vote if Chez or Roxy’s won both courses on a ballot. Just in case any of you math whiz types were counting!)

While Chez got more votes overall in the competition (201 to 192 baby!), Roxy’s took home the prize for winning more courses. We had a blast working with James and his crew, and we look forward to many years of being sandwich BFFs.

Congrats to Roxy’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese, 2011 National Sandwich Day Face-Off Champions!!!
