Tim Hortons Extreme Italian Sandwich

DUBLIN, Ohio – Tim Hortons is embracing the flavors of Italy in its new Italian-style sandwich.

The Extreme Italian Sandwich is the chain's latest addition to its lunch menu. The sandwich features ham capicola, genoa salami and pepperoni in addition to mozzarella and a creamy sundried tomato sauce served on a parmesan and herbed-topped bun.

"Our guests told us they were looking for variety at lunch and we think our Extreme Italian Sandwich will deliver on that demand with its big, bold, zesty taste," said Mike Meilleur, executive vice president Tim Hortons US.

The sandwich is available at participating Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants for $4.69. The chain also is testing additional lunch products in other markets, including a chorizo Handheld Pie in Columbus, Ohio, a Crispy Chicken Sandwich in Buffalo and a Meatball Panini in Detroit.
