Portillo’s has announced the launch of Italian Beef Week, happening from May 21 – 27. The food holiday will celebrate the Portillo’s signature sandwich and Chicago staple by offering two regular Italian Beef Sandwiches for $10 for the entire week.
To kick off the celebration, Portillo’s introduces the Rhyme Time Challenge. In addition to its menu of iconic Chicago eats, Portillo’s is also known for the rhymes that staff members recite when announcing completed orders. Long-standing favorites include “Number 7, you’re in heaven!” and “Number 9, it’s time to dine,” which are shouted out from the restaurant’s pick-up counter. For the first time, fans are invited to create their own rhyme for a chance to win free Portillo’s for a year.
Portillo’s customers can submit their rhyme at portillos.com/rhymetime throughout the week of Italian Beef Week (May 21 – 27). The first-place winner will receive free Portillo’s food for a year and their rhyme will used by employees in all Portillo’s restaurants nationwide. Second and third place winners will be awarded a swag bag with Portillo’s merchandise and a $25 gift card.
To be eligible, submitted rhymes must end with a number 0-9. All entries must rhyme, be free of inappropriate language, and must not be a rhyme already used by the Portillo’s team.
The Italian Beef Week promotion will be available at all Portillo’s locations, nationwide. For guests with hungrier appetites, a third sandwich will be full price, unless purchased alongside a fourth sandwich for a combined $10. Cheese and peppers are not included.
