Local sandwich artist places 2nd in sandwich making competition

Accuracy, perfection and speed. That’s what it takes to win Subway’s annual Global Sub Jammers competition. This year, Sandwich Artist Sara Teigs, of Pullman, received second place in the competition, keeping her one of the fastest Sandwich Artists in the world.

Tiegs competed against an elite group of 41 Sandwich Artists from the U.S., Canada, Singapore, South Korea and Germany, among other countries.

Tiegs took home the second place medal and $4,000 with a time of 48.7 seconds.

“This just fuels the fire to bring the title back to Pullman next year,” said Tiegs, who has been with Subway for 17 years. “I am excited for my store to reopen; being able to help my regular customers will be the best practice for Toronto.”

Next year’s competition will be held in Toronto, Canada.

Tiegs works at the 460 E. Main St. location in Pullman. It was shut down due to arson in 2017 and is planned to open soon. In the meantime, Tiegs has been working at other locations in Whitman County and continues to head up a majority of the catering.
