Self-proclaimed “highly dysfunctional sandwich lovers” are behind the new online sandwich delivery service Barney Brown, which specializes in sandwich customization.

The service, created by Baked by Melissa co-founder Matt Baer, allows users to visualize their orders by stacking on ingredients of their choice (including local breads from bakeries including Tom Cat Bakery, and for croissants, Ceci Cela Patisserie). The Barney Brown app can also save  favorite sandwich creations, making for a two-tap reordering process.

A user-generated gallery also provides inspiration, which shows different sandwich combinations by different sandwich enthusiasts.

Epoch Times staffers tried a few combinations. All of them were very fresh—including the breads—which isn’t always the case for sandwiches, with a common favorite being an Italian one with semolina bread, ham, salami, pepperoni, provolone, tomato, lettuce, onions, and a dash of oil and vinegar.

Orders can be placed on the website or through the app. Delivery is available daily, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., in Manhattan, between 14th street and 42nd street and between the FDR and the West Side Highway.
