In 1762, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, was so engrossed with his card game that he did not want to leave the gaming table. Instead of going to the dining table, he asked that some roast beef be placed between two slices of bread, which he then could easily eat with his hands. And in honor of his brilliant dining concept, bread served this way was named the Sandwich.
Some 250 years later, the legacy of the Earl of Sandwich lives on with sandwich restaurants serving quick and easy meals on the go. In 2004, Lord John Montagu, the 11th Earl of Sandwich, and his son, the Honorable Orlando Montagu, direct descendants of the inventor of the sandwich, partnered with Robert Earl, founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood®, to launch the Earl of Sandwich® restaurants.
Today, the Earl of Sandwich can be found in 35 locations across USA, one in Paris and one in Manila, Philippines located at the 4th level, Bridgeway, SM Megamall.
This thriving success attests to its reputation as the expert makers of The World’s Greatest Hot Sandwich. And after all, the company has over 250 years of experience to perfect the sandwich.
Through the centuries, the Earl’s sandwich selection has grown and evolved into its signature sandwiches, which are all built to order with unique compositions of flavors.
