Newtown, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/03/2017 -- With every culture comes a unique take on the sandwich: a staple to many diets brought about from necessity and the spreading of customs and traditions across the globe. America is lucky enough to have such a diverse population, which brings with it a manifold array of cuisine. While there are far too many kinds of sandwiches to count, one remains a favorite for Americans on the East coast: the hoagie. Or Sub, or grinder, or whatever it is that the locals call it in their local community.

It is certainly interesting to note that one of the most famous sandwiches of all time goes by many names because it has no standardized name! Before corporate chains existed in the United States to brand everything with a specific title, each city was free to label this loaf-sized delicacy stuffed with cold cuts, cheeses, vegetables, and dressing. Areas with a large population of immigrants from one country each had their own name for it, which is why the title is more regional today and less standard.

In Philadelphia and its surrounding cities, such a compilation of fillings on an Italian roll is called a hoagie, but there is much discrepancy towards the origins of the name. Some argue that the word hoagie came from the Irish immigrant workers prevalent to the area, while others insist that it comes from a shop owner's comment about the sheer size of the sandwich and how one would be a hog to eat so much.

Regardless of the reason behind the term, the hoagie is always regarded as a beloved community staple that children and their parents alike can enjoy hogging down. Perfect for events such as birthday parties and office meetings, the hoagies offered at Slack's Hoagie Shack are unmatched in price and taste for catering delivery in Yardley, PA.
