house” with the purchase of a new Summer Salad.
A few lucky prospects in every store’s trade area will even receive an

– The Chicken Chipotle Spinach Salad ($5.49) – Featuring spicy chicken,
chopped cheese and roasted corn relish served on a bed of spinach with
Chipotle vinaigrette and topped with corn chips.
Einstein Bros’ promotions are just as creative as their recipes. The
coupon ad comes
on the heels of a highly visible and successful promotion that
295,032 free “Retro Lunchboxes” featuring characters Melvyn and Elmo to
lunch time sandwich patrons. Einstein
Bros sales for the week of the lunchbox giveaway were up seven percent
sales during the same period last year. Einstein Bros combined
efforts, coupled with inventive, popular menu offerings, have helped
them to the forefront of fast casual dining and have brought them
their “Out to Lunch” campaign.
The new promotion will be used as part of Einstein Bros’ ongoing
strategy to strengthen its reputation as a popular lunch destination,
just a favorite “bagel and shmear” breakfast stop. Other new menu
include Summer Salads, “Build Your Own Bros Deli” Sandwich and other
sandwiches including the Ultimate Toasted Cheese Sandwich.
