PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh restaurant that stuffs its sandwiches with French fries and coleslaw will be stuffing those fixins in the mail.

Primanti Bros. is teaming up with Goldbely.com, an online firm that delivers food to homes, to make $109 sandwich packs available anywhere in the United States.

Primanti’s, which now has several Pittsburgh-area locations, started in the city’s Strip District in the 1930s, when food wholesalers there once took delivery of most of the produce sold in western Pennsylvania. The sandwiches were meant to be a complete one-handed meal that truckers could eat while they worked.

The kits contain enough lunch meat, cheese, fries, coleslaw and Italian bread to make four of the sandwiches. The kits come with instructions on how to store and heat the food and a T-shirt.
