It’s National Sandwich Day on Thursday, November 3.

National sandwich day is celebrated on November 3 every year to mark the birthday of John Montagu.

Montagu is better known as the Earl of Sandwich.

He’s the guy credited for coming up with the idea of a sandwich.

Fun fact, in the 18th century Montagu was the Earl of Sandwich, which is located in England.

He like his meals to go and liked to put his dinner meat between two slices of bread.

Some restaurants are offering deals on sandwiches on Thursday, such as Subway offering customers a free sub when purchasing one of equal or greater value.
