Cinnabon now served at NW Grand Prairie Schlotzsky’s Deli

August 17, 2010 – Although, you wouldn’t have guessed it from the name, Schlotzsky’s Deli is a Texas original.  It was created nearly 40 years ago in Austin, by Don and Delores Dissman.  They gave their restaurant that funny name because they thought it was just that… funny.

Recently, Schlotzsky’s has partnered with Cinnabon to serve cinnamon rolls at select locations.  Julio Van Scoit is the owner of the northwest Grand Prairie location which just added a Cinnabon Express.  He is confident in the potential success of the venture, and believes it will add to the loyal customer base. “If they try it once, they’ll be back,” says Van Scoit.

The restaurant is located at 2035 N. Highway 360, on the southbound service road, near Chapp’s Café.  From the customer’s perspective, the store is clean, and that is backed up by the city’s April 2010 inspection which gave them an “A”.  Schlotzsky’s staff is friendly, and orders are served quickly and accurately.

A gooey Cinnabon Classic Roll will cost you $3.49.  When you add with your combo meal and tax, you are probably near $10.  It’s a bit pricey if you’re comparing with fast-food, but not when you consider other delis’ complete meal cost.  Also, there are coupons available in the Ad Pages in your mailbox or at AdPages.com, for a free Classic Roll with purchase of a medium combo.  Not a bad deal for a very filling lunch.

There are 15 different sandwiches on the menu at Schlotzsky’s.  Currently, the company is promoting a Make Your Picks 66 contest which focuses on a trio:  Albuquerque Turkey, Tulsa Two-Step Angus Beef and Cheddar, and Windy City Pastrami and Swiss.  The grand prize is a 6-night family vacation to your ideal spot on Route 66.  Entries are being accepted through August 29, 2010, at www.makeyourpicks66.com.

Schlotzsky’s Hits the Road with Route 66 Promotion

Austin, TX (May 31, 2010) Pack your bags and hit the road this summer with Schlotzsky’s Route 66 promotion, now through August 29. For the first time, we’re putting together a two-part promotion centered around famous stops along the historic Route 66 highway.

Part one of the promo features three sandwiches that will take you through the first leg of the tour, making their way from Chicago, through Tulsa, and on to Albuquerque. Part two will start in the fall and finish out the trip down Route 66, heading through New Mexico and California. But first we have a grand summer adventure planned with our three Route 66 sandwiches, which feature large portions of premium meats.

The first stop along this American highway is the Windy City Pastrami & Swiss, with slices of top-quality pastrami and Swiss cheese with Dijon mustard, served on our dark rye bread.

Next up is the Tulsa Two-Step Angus Beef & Cheddar, featuring Angus roast beef, crispy bacon strips, cheddar cheese and red onions topped with hickory BBQ sauce and served on Schlotzsky’s signature Fresh-from-Scratch® sourdough buns.

And rounding out this historic trip is the Albuquerque Turkey, with smoked turkey breast and crispy bacon strips, cheddar, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses layered with fire-roasted vegetables, shredded lettuce and chipotle mayonnaise and served on our kickin’ jalapeño cheese buns.

“This is a very unique promotion for us in that we’re serving three sandwiches, each with various meats and cheeses, which gives us a real variety for the flavor profile,” said President Kelly Roddy.  “With generous portions of high-quality cuts of pastrami, Angus beef and smoked turkey, everyone is sure to find a sandwich they love with the Route 66 promotion.”
