AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 13, 2004

Mark your calendar for a lunch date with Schlotzsky’s(R) newest sandwich, the “Smoked Turkey & Guacamole,” which debuted April 5. Leave compromises at the door, and step inside for sensational taste coupled with nutritional intelligence — or as Schlotzsky’s (Nasdaq:BUNZ) calls it, another High Food IQ(tm) choice — from the originators of the “Serious Sandwich.”

“We challenge the IQ of every new menu item,” said Monica Landers, spokesperson for Schlotzsky’s. “The avocado in guacamole has a naturally high IQ — fabulous flavor and dietary nutrients. Avocado is high in potassium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, fiber, the B-vitamins, and the good essential fatty acids,” said Landers.

The Smoked Turkey & Guacamole Sandwich is served hot on toasted wheat bread, with a healthy combination of turkey, guacamole, roma tomato, crisp romaine, and red onion. This nutritious sandwich has only six grams of fat.

Carb-conscious customers can also choose to wrap this sandwich in a low carb tortilla — making the small Smoked Turkey & Guacamole Sandwich just 10 net carbs. In fact, any Schlotzsky’s sandwich or wrap can now be served on the 7g net carb tortilla — a great choice that offers flexible menu options.
