“Heating things up has also worked well for the turkey pub club at the University of Mary Washington’s (UMW) retail location, the Underground. This sandwich has been the Underground’s top seller for seven years, accounting for about 40 percent of all sandwich sales there, with layers or roasted turkey, cheddar cheese and crispy bacon wrapped in naan and toasted until it’s GBD (golden brown and delicious).”

According to Rose Benedict, marketing manager for University of Mary Washington Dining Services:

“’When we were considering making some menu changes at the Underground, we did a survey to see what new foods students wanted added and which existing menu items they wanted to keep. Every student responding to the survey listed this sandwich as the one that must be included on any new menu.”
