John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, was born in November 1718. A hundred years later, you might get a free lunch thanks to him.
On Sunday, November 3, National Sandwich Day is in recognition of Montagu, which is said to have invented – or at least popularized – the modern sandwich during a 24-hour cash game in 1762.
Several national sandwich chains have announced deals, freebies or philanthropy associated with the occasion. Here's a look at what some of them have to offer:

Popeyes Chicken brings back is hugely popular chicken sandwich on Sunday. The chain sold out of the sandwiches about two weeks after it was launched in August. Popeyes tweeted a video teasing the sandwich's return and jokingly ruled a social media rivalry with Chick-fil-A, which is closed on Sundays.
WHY IT TOOK MONTHS FOR POPEYES TO USE BACK YOUR Chicken SANDWICH  Quiznos offers a campaign from National Sandwich Day on participating locations where customers can get an 8 inch sub for $ 6 or $ 7 for steak or prime rib subs.
Subway collaborates with the nonprofit Feeding America to donate meals to people in need of the National Sandwich Day Week party. From November 3-9, Subway said it will provide a meal to the group for each purchase made on Subway.com and the Subway app.
