When is a Sandwich not a Sandwich?

When it’s a burrito, of course. I cannot stop laughing about this news story where Panera Bread tried to stop a Mexican restaurant from moving in near it. Here’s a blurb from the news story:

WORCESTER, Mass. – Is a burrito a sandwich? The Panera Bread Co. bakery-and-cafe chain says yes. But a judge said no, ruling against Panera in its bid to prevent a Mexican restaurant from moving into the same shopping mall.

Panera has a clause in its lease that prevents the White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury from renting to another sandwich shop. Panera tried to invoke that clause to stop the opening of an Qdoba Mexican Grill.

The best part of the story:

The difference, the judge ruled, comes down to two slices of bread versus one tortilla.

LOL!! In my entire life, I never thought a burrito was a sandwich. That’s quite a stretch, Panera! (Hat tip abovethelaw)
