Spokane Woman Crowned Champion Sandwich Maker

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – While sports fans in Spokane celebrate an arena football championship, hungry patrons of a local Subway sandwich store are celebrating their own champion.

Jennifer Underwood of the Subway on Sullivan Road was recently crowned the "World's Fastest Sandwich Maker" at a competition in Chicago. Underwood won the competition by making a turkey and cheese sandwich in 45.3 seconds.

"It was just the most incredible feeling," she said. "I just wanted to jump up and down and scream."

Underwood beat 33,000 employees from 90 countries to win the Subway Sub Jammer competition.

It was a championship that almost didn't happen. Underwood started working at Subway as a teenager trying to make gas money for her new car. She initially wanted a part time job at an ice cream store, but they weren't hiring. Underwood applied at Subway instead and has been at the restaurant for ten years.

"I love making sandwiches," she said. "I'm not going anywhere."

Underwood was awarded $3,000 for winning the competition on July 25. She is already practicing for the 2011 competition scheduled in San Francisco.
