Sandwich Sandwich wins at the Sammies Awards


A huge well done to Sandwich Sandwich, whose Baldwin Street store took home a gold Independent Sandwich Retailer award at this year’s Sammies Awards.

The Baldwin Street branch of the Bristol sandwich retailer was awarded by the British Sandwich & Food to Go Association after excelling in a range of aspects, including service, eating experience, product range, hygiene and cleanliness.

Creating all sorts of sandwiches from mostly locally sourced ingredients, this Bristol institution is known for its huge range and great prices, with many sandwiches priced at around the £4 mark. Some of their bestsellers include their chilli flatbread, and their own soft-boiled Scotch eggs.

Chef Nick Kleiner and his wife, Anita, formerly ran the Cotham Sandwich Co. before transforming it into Sandwich Sandwich. They now have four shops across Bristol, on Cotham Hill, Baldwin Street, Temple Way and Queens Road.

The Sammies Awards are an annual event, with categories spanning everything from Best New Sandwich to Marketing and Retail. The Independent Retailer Award, in which Sandwich Sandwich won gold, takes the Sammies judges across the country to find their winners.

They scored top marks in every aspect of the report, and got some great comments from the judge, too. “Very friendly and so busy, full of regular customers”, the report said. “The recipes and combination of ingredients were spot on. Despite being so busy, the service was quick and professional and the staff showed so much passion and knowledge of the sandwiches. With very attractive and appetising displays of food and excellent service standards, Sandwich Sandwich is a very worthy winner.”

Nick at Sandwich Sandwich said: “It’s great to be recognised with a national award. Sandwich Sandwich is a Bristol institution but to be recognised nationally is such a wonderful accolade for our family-run business.”
