Grandwich 2017 has officially begun! This is the seventh year for the event with 33 local businesses competing.

Competitors must come up with a fresh, new sandwich that has never been on their menu before.

The Grandwich public vote runs through July 21. The top ten finalists will be announced on the Grandwich website and social media outlets on July 24. Once announced, the competition will conclude with the third annual judges tour of the top ten restaurants on July 27.

Rockwell Republic is no stranger to the event. Sushi Chef, Cheyenne Snoderly, invented her restaurants entry, the Short Rib Banh Mi. A Vietnamese type sandwich with a Korean spin.

Grandwich gives community members the chance to get out and try restaurants they've maybe never tried before, as well as an excuse to taste new food!
