DUBLIN, Ohio , April 14, 2014 (press release) – Delicious new sandwich adds variety to the bakery cafe chain's lunch menu

Viva l'italiano estremo! Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is adding a new sandwich to its lunch menu. The savory Italian-style sandwich brings more variety to guests in the afternoon and will have them saying Si!
