During the judge's visit or Thursday, the cook will make two types of sandwiches: a bacon, egg and cheese (known as a BEC) sandwich and another, different sandwich that is part of the bodega's official menu.

According to José Bello, founder of My Bodega Online, the competition will announce winners in four categories:

  • Best Bodega Sandwich
