Important Moments in American Justice: A Burrito is Not a Sandwich

Panera says that the burrito is a sandwich and as a result, since they’re the only sandwich shoppe contracted to be in a particular shopping center, Qdoba Mexican Grill shouldn’t be allowed in. They were so convinced that they were right in this matter, they took it to a judge. The judge listened to the dictionary, the USDA, and a chef from Cambridge instead.

I’d love it if people would go into Paneras today and ask for an Asiago Roast Beef Burrito. Or a Turkey Caprese Burrito. Just to see the reactions of the folks who work at Panera.
