FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The iconic franchise chain announces a new Latin Fusion menu rollout in restaurants beginning September 4 following franchising expansion efforts in South America and the announcement of international music sensation Pitbull as an equity partner in the company. The New Miami Subs Grill highlights the Hispanic influence and fusion of cultures and flavors in South Florida, while providing new and existing customers a wider variety of ethnic flavors. The menu debut arrives just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated nationwide September 15 through October 15.
"The introduction of Miami Sub's Latin Fusion Menu is largely a reflection of the exciting global growth and changes that we've experienced within the company including the announcement of international music sensation Pitbull as an equity partner and board member," says CEO Richard Chwatt. "We are excited to offer our loyal brand followers and new customers the opportunity to experience familiar flavors and the option to mix a taste of 'home' with their Miami Subs favorites as we continue domestic and worldwide expansion efforts," says Vice President Frank Baran.
Miami Sub's new Latin Fusion Menu introduces the Cuban Sandwich, the widely popular Cuban favorite that has become synonymous with Miami, served on a 6" or 12" sub roll, panini style; The Roast Pork Sandwich, mojo marinated pork with sauteed onions, pickles and potato sticks served on a round brioche roll; Tostones, a Caribbean side dish of fried green plantains; Yellow Rice; Guava Cheesecake and tropical beverages, Materva and Jupina. Existing Latin-inspired Miami Subs menu items which have earned a permanent spot on the new Latin Fusion Menu include the Nacho Ordinary Cheesesteak, Fajita Cheesesteak, along with the recently added Havana Burger and Jalapeno Bites.
The iconic franchise chain has had a notable year with several new product introductions, including healthy dining options certified by Healthy Dining Finder as well as a line of premium fresh Angus Steak Burgers. The Latin Fusion Menu serves as a way for The New Miami Subs Grill to pay homage to the community it has flourished in and the opportunity to offer their loyal followers a blend of familiar flavors with their Miami Subs favorites. There is no doubt that the recent announcements of expansion into South America and, most notably, the equity partnership with global superstar and entrepreneur Armando Christian Perez, known as Pitbull, are influencing the direction of the chain.
