February was a very exciting month at Roma Foods in Latham, New York! Not only did we have amazing Valentine’s Day specials for our customers as well as the start of Fish Fridays for Lent, but we launched our first contest through the Roma Facebook page: THE DREAM SUB CONTEST!
“The Dream Sub contest was Roma’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to all our loyal customers who support our business every day,” explains Frank Bolognino, owner of Roma Foods in Latham and Saratoga, NY.
How did the contest work? Customers were asked to visit the Roma Food Facebook page and click on the “Dream Sub” tab found on the left-hand column of the page. From there, they were asked to build their dream sandwich using an assortment of Roma’s cold cuts, cheeses and all the fixings used to make the perfect sandwich. After the sandwich was built, they were asked give the sandwich a special and personalized name. Once entries were submitted through the Facebook page, the fun began! Roma Food staff created each nominated sub and put it through the staffing “taste test” and the winner was chosen! The prize for the contest was a free sub for the winner as well as having the sandwich added to the Roma menu. In other words, the winner of the contest became a Roma Foods celebrity!
The winner of the first ever Dream Sub Contest was announced via Facebook on March 4th and was awarded to Bev Feltt and her sandwich “The ROMAncer”!
Bev blew the competition away with her entry she dubbed “The ROMAncer”, a sandwich named after one of her favorite delis in Latham, NY. How do you build the ROMAncer? You start with our In-Store Roasted Turkey and Roast Beef, then add Asiago and Sharp Cheddar Sheese and finish it off with Lettuce, Tomato, Roasted Peppers and Bacon served on a torpedo sub roll with authentic honey mustard! How could you not want to eat that!?
“I really like Roma’s because they have a nice variety of cold cuts and specialty foods that you might not be able to find elsewhere,” Bev told us. “All the people are very nice and treat you like you’re their most valued customer. When I saw that they were having a contest, I just HAD to enter it. I tried to be creative with my entry and I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the ROMAncer actually was. I’d make one myself at home, but it’s just not the same!” We liked the sandwich so much that the week after we announced Bev’s sandwich as the winner, we decided to name it our “Sammich of the Week,” the specialty sandwich that changes weekly.
Stop into Roma Foods today and order The ROMAncer right off of our menu! You’ll be glad you did!
