The fan-favorite sub sandwich, The General, is back on the menu at Giant Eagle’s GetGo Café and Market convenience-store chain.

Inspired by the classic flavors of General Tso’s chicken, the sandwich is available for a limited time after a five-year hiatus.

The sandwich features fresh-made-in-house bread, two breaded chicken tenderloins covered in a tangy-and-sweet General Tso’s sauce, a drizzle of sriracha sauce and two vegetable spring rolls.

“This one-of-a-kind sandwich exemplifies everything we try to bring to life in our food at GetGo,” said Larry Galley, director of fresh merchandising at the Giant Eagle grocer-owned c-store chain. “Even during its five-year absence, guests have been vocal about their feelings, stating The General is what they picture when they think of GetGo. It’s a fan favorite.”

Customers who use their Giant Eagle Advantage Card to purchase The General between April 18 and April 26 will automatically receive a “next-day” 10-cents-off-per-gallon discount on their account, which they can redeem on a GetGo fuel purchase, while supplies last.

The discount must be redeemed on the calendar day following the purchase.

The final day to redeem the “next-day” discount is April 26. This discount is stackable with any other cents-off-per-gallon myPerks rewards customers may already have in their account.
