Philadelphia’s Cosmi’s Deli Sells 2 Sandwiches Named After Eagles’ ‘Big Dom,’ With Proceeds Going to Charity

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A South Philly deli has added two new sandwiches to its menu in honor of famous Philadelphia Eagles staffer “Big Dom” DiSandro – the proceeds of which go to charity.

Cosmi’s Deli, on the corner of 8th and Dickinson Streets, now sells the Big Dom Cugine and the Big Dom Cutlet.

The Big Dom cugine features “Eagle Green” pesto sauce, mortadella, prosciutto parma, fresh burrata cheese, arugula, seasoned tomatoes and long hots topped with oil and balsamic vinegar on a roll from Carangi Baking Company.

“You know what, sloppy sandwiches are good sometimes,” says Mike Seccia, the owner of Cosmi’s, in an Instagram Reel as he assembles the sandwich from scratch.

If the cugine isn’t your thing, the Big Dom Cutlet sandwich is like a chicken parmesan on a bun.

Money from the sale of both sandwiches will go to the Eagles Autism Foundation. The team charity has inspired previous forays into the art scenethe annual Eagles Autism Challenge and even set one up sensory room at State Farm Stadium so that Super Bowl LVII would be sensory inclusive.

Now the cause is getting a boost with an appeal to the taste buds of hoagie lovers.

“We have a very popular guy and we have a good sandwich shop like us that does good work. And between the two of us we can do something really good for a good cause,” Seccia said.

There are no onions on either sandwich, because Big Dom is not a fan.

Big Dom takes on new role at Eagles

The team announced last week that DiSandro would be in charge of gameday coaching operations in addition to his role as senior advisor to general manager Howie Roseman and chief security officer.

The move will likely see DiSandro on the sidelines for games after the NFL banned him last season after a side fight between DeVonta Smith and San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw.
