Blimpie Rolls Out New "Hoboken Hero" Sub in Honor of 50th Birthday Celebration

Iconic Sub Chain Celebrates Hoboken, N.J. Heritage with Special Sub

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blimpie® (www.blimpie.com) continues its 50th birthday celebration with the roll out of the Hoboken Hero, a new, savory Italian sub sandwich packed with pepperoni, salami, prosciuttini, and provolone. The sub is a limited time offer, available in stores nationwide now until October 5, 2014.

Blimpie Celebrates 50 Years!

The inspiration for the Hoboken Hero comes from Blimpie's beginnings in Hoboken, New Jersey where the first store was founded 50 years ago. This 'hero' or sub sandwich is an ode to the Italian heritage that the Hoboken area was known for. After Blimpie's founders opened their first store, word quickly spread that the new "Blimpie" was a must-try tasty treat.  Customers lined up every day to try the new sub on the block, with the freshly sliced meats and cheeses.  

"We created the Hoboken Hero to give our fans a taste of the original Blimpie experience," says Steve Evans, vice president of marketing at Blimpie.  "In 1964, three friends opened our very first store in Hoboken and we want to salute the city and the people who helped us grow to become America's favorite sub shop. We thank our loyal customers who now bring their children and grandchildren into our stores nationwide to eat the delicious subs they grew up with."

Since opening its doors 50 years ago, Blimpie has added hundreds of stores nationwide, expanded internationally and offered subs and wraps made with a variety of ingredients.  However, customers still crave the same Italian meats that originally made the brand famous. 

"Even though our menu has changed through the years, we remain committed to serving an amazing product with the highest quality ingredients," says Evans.  "We launched all of our 50th anniversary initiatives, including the Hoboken Hero, to celebrate our fans and share our timeless brand that has evolved to appeal to customers of all ages."

The "Hoboken Hero" is one of many 50th anniversary campaigns Blimpie has rolled out in 2014. On the official birthday, April 4th, 2014; all Blimpie stores offered up 50 cent regular-sized Blimpie Best subs to the first 200 customers who entered their stores.   From May 5th through June 29th, Blimpie hosted the Golden Giveaway contest that is sending one lucky winner and a guest on a trip to Hawaii, the 50th state.   The summer-long contest also awarded dozens of other fans with great prizes like free tablets, free subs for a year, and $50 Blimpie gift cards.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

He will demonstrate a cloud-native Spring Boot app running in Cloud Foundry and communicating with clients over websocket protocol that can be easily scaled horizontally and coordinate...
yperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box.

If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....
