The Pittsburgh-based Primanti Bros. sandwich went toe-to-toe with Hershey’s beloved chocolate and peanut butter concoction, the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in the final round of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry’s Coolest Thing Made in Pa. competition. The classic yinzer sandwich came away with the win for the second year in a row.

“Win once - maybe it’s a fluke. Win twice - and maybe we really are the coolest thing made in Pennsylvania,” said Golomb “We’re excited to offer this awesome deal to all the fans who voted us to victory.”

To get the deal, customers must first purchase a sandwich at full price. The offer is available for dine-in and take-out. Customers will need to head to the Primanti Bros. website to grab the coupon or use code 2CENTS for online orders, the company said.
