  • Which Wich® Superior Sandwiches to Launch a Crypto Box Meal available only on April 29Which Wich® Superior Sandwiches to Launch a Crypto Box Meal available only on April 29

Which Wich® Superior Sandwiches is taking the booming cryptocurrency world by storm, revealing a brand-new Crypto Box meal available only on April 29 at Which Wich locations in the U.S., while supplies last.  The Crypto Box Meal includes regular sandwich, cookie, chips and large drink, plus an additional gift, a limited-edition Which Wich-branded CryptoCoin that is worth $10 on April 29 but changes value daily for up to two years based on Bitcoin fluctuations.

Interesting for European chains to create a product and combine it with cryptocurrency? We don’t think we are at the same level of the Americans, of which 14 percent owns some form of cryptocurrency.

P.Pole Pizza in Miami serves dynamic freestyle pizza in the shape of a skate-board! And they put your pizza passion to the test as you create your own pie to please your taste buds. Their reimagined pizza is the answer to finding pies which cater to gluten free and organic tastes with a vast array of flavors and options. They recently opened a new restaurant at 701 Washington Avenue in South Beach Miami just steps away from the ocean and sand.

We love the idea of the skate-board shaped pizza and the fact that the guests can freestyle their own pizza, there are three choices of dough, plus five sauces and over 30 toppings to choose from! As they say, it’s not your old-school pizzeria.
