Bravissimo! Tim Hortons Extreme Italian Sandwich is back

- Originally introduced as a limited-time offer, the popular Extreme Italian 
Sandwich lives on - 
OAKVILLE, ON, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Viva l'italiano estremo! After selling out 
within weeks when introduced for a limited time in August 2013, the bold and 
zesty Extreme Italian Sandwich is back by popular demand, and starting today 
it's here to stay as a permanent Tim Hortons lunch menu item. 
"Our guests told us they were looking for variety at lunch, and our Extreme 
Italian Sandwich delivered with its big, bold, zesty taste," says David 
McMullen, Vice President, Marketing, Tim Hortons Canada. "Extreme Italian 
quickly rose to be one of our top-selling sandwiches and solidified Tim 
Hortons position as a leading lunch destination. Feedback from our guests 
about the sandwich was unequivocal: they loved it, so we brought it back." 
Stacked with layers of the bold Italian flavour of ham capicollo, genoa 
salami, and pepperoni, the Extreme Italian Sandwich is topped with mozzarella 
and a creamy sundried tomato sauce, and served on a soft, fresh parmesan and 
herbed-topped bun. 
The new Extreme Italian Sandwich is made fresh to order for each guest and is 
available at participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada for $4.99.
