Los Angeles Sandwich Week

Thank YOU for making Los Angeles Sandwich Week 2021 a delicious success!


As part of National Small Business Month, the first-ever Los Angeles Sandwich Week took place May 24 – 31, 2021. Thanks to all who took part in helping our community re-discover Los Angeles, celebrating the best small restaurants and local sandwich shops in the area, posting on social media, entering our contests, and supporting Project Angel Food!

(And if you couldn’t make it, you can STILL plan a sandwich safari with the Official Guide — just fill out the form to get your copy!)

Los Angeles Sandwich week is coming this May!

What is L.A. Sandwich Week?

Los Angeles Sandwich Week 2021 is a countywide celebration of small businesses, culture, and food! As a closeout to Small Business Month, this celebration of sandwiches (and those who make them) takes place Monday, May 24, to Monday, May 31, 2021. L.A. Sandwich Week encourages residents and visitors to rediscover L.A. neighborhoods through food.

During L.A. Sandwich Week 2021, more than 100 sandwiches and small businesses will be featured from across the most populous county in the US. A free L.A. Sandwich Week Guide will be produced which not only will list the featured sandwiches, but also denote the Mayors’ picks (selected by elected officials from across L.A. County, including the County Board of Supervisors and L.A. City Council) as well as local, self-guided tours curated by Secret City L.A. There is no cost or obligation for the small businesses to participate—the intention is to drive more business to them after a challenging year.

Daily Gift Card Contest

Post a pic of your favorite sandwich on Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #BestOfLASW21, #LASW21, the name of the shop, and @SecretCityLA.  One winner each day during Sandwich Week will be selected to win a $50 gift card to that shop! (One winner per day across both platforms based on those tagged publicly.)

Sandwich Maker Grant Award

Support your favorite shop by tagging it on social media with #BestLASandwichMaker, #LASW21 and @SecretCityLA, and tell us why they should get the community grant. One winner each day will be selected to be entered for a 1-in-8 chance to win the full $1000 grant.

Buy a sandwich, help feed those in need.

With the generous support of Wells Fargo, for every sandwich purchased from the list during Sandwich Week, $1 will be donated to Project Angel Food, up to $25,000! (Project Angel Food prepares and delivers more than 2000 healthy meals daily to feed people impacted by serious illness across Los Angeles.)
