Sandwich havens of America

Posted on September 16, 2015 by Natalie Morin

Making the perfect sandwich is an art. Getting the right cheese to meat ratio, as well as picking out the perfect sauces to add that extra je ne sais quoi takes time and practice. The stress of getting all the parts just right is enough that many prefer to have a sandwich made for them.

Some people unfortunately live in sandwich deserts, so it’s helpful to know where to find the nearest oasis. Luckily, FindTheHome did the work for you. The site crunched the numbers to find the cities in America that boast the most sandwich, hoagie and sub shops per 10K people.
