Subway Will Soon Offer Sandwiches On King’s Hawaiian Rolls
Will you be ordering your sub "Aloha Style?"
Are you old enough to remember when the only two bread choices at Subway were white and wheat? Well, we’ve come a long way since then, as Subway has added everything from Italian to Honey Oat to Flatbread to their expansive menu. And, now, the sub chain is adding King’s Hawaiian Bread — a sweet, soft roll similar to Portuguese bread — to their menu, too. At least for now.
Subway is testing out King’s Hawaiian Bread at a few select locations across the country, so some of you lucky ducks will get to be the trial audience for these new subs. If you live in or near Champaign, Illinois, Reno, Nevada, or Richmond, Virginia, then belly up to your nearest Subway and order an “Aloha Style” sub.
Ordering your sub “Aloha Style” doesn’t just mean that you will get to enjoy your sub on King’s Hawaiian Bread. It also means you’ll get DOUBLE the meat and cheese on your sub, so you’ll be eating like a King, indeed!
This is the first time any restaurant has ever made King’s Hawaiian Bread in-house.
“These new sandwiches are unlike anything out there and Subway is offering guests a chance to try this iconic bread like they never have before—freshly baked,” explains Len Van Popering, Subway’s Chief Brand and Innovation Officer, in a recent press release. “We’re excited to be the only restaurant in the world trusted to serve King’s Hawaiian Bread this way.”
More than 300 Subway locations in Illinois, Virginia and Nevada will get to experience this new menu offering.
The King’s Hawaiian Roll is 8 inches long, making it 2 inches longer than a traditional 6-inch sub. This is perfect for those times when you don’t want a footlong but a 6-inch isn’t quite enough to fill you up.
And if you’ve never had this sweet bread before? There are several brands selling it at your local supermarket.
Not only that, but a number of food bloggers have attempted to recreate the bread’s singular flavor at home. Take a look at these rolls made by Sarah of Whole and Heavenly Oven:
Look for the King’s Hawaiian Roll at participating Subways starting June 27. And if you don’t live near a participating Subway, don’t fret. If this market test goes well, King’s Hawaiian Bread will hopefully become a standard Subway offering!
