The founder of Ike's, Ike Shehadeh, has no problem creating sandwiches. The concept has over 800 varieties, after all. When the pandemic hit, the chain turned to his creativity. Every Friday, Ike's would promote a unique sandwich Shehadeh created around a particular show to binge-watch, such as "Tiger King" or "Ozark."
