WILBRAHAM, Mass.--()--As we celebrate the earliest vernal equinox in over a century, Friendly’s iconic SuperMelt® Sandwich is being heralded once again as the official sandwich of the first day of spring.

“With an early Spring comes an earlier opportunity to take advantage of our latest deal on our iconic SuperMelt sandwiches – cheesy masterpieces in signature flavors and grilled-to-order,” said Dennis Pfaff, FIC Restaurants Inc., Chief Operating Officer. “We couldn’t let this day pass without celebrating the warming days the best way we know how: with melted cheese.”

Friendly’s legendary SuperMelts have been uniting the irresistible combination of melted cheese and grilled bread with a variety of savory and tender proteins since the sandwich’s debut on a Friendly’s menu more than 30 years ago.
