Just putting an idea out into the universe:

The company "Yum!" has owned a number of fast food brands over the years, resulting in some of them being located under the same roof. At one end of my neighborhood there's a KFC & Long John Silver's, and at the other there's a Taco Bell & Long John Silver's. I used to live down the street from a KFC & Pizza Hut.

I'd like to see them offer a special menu of combined items at these combined restaurants. Have yourself a fish taco or a shrimp burrito. Get a chicken sandwich with pepperoni. Put jalapeƱo and chipotle sauce on your pizza -- or real mozzarella and marinara on your Mexican pizza. There are many possibilities just by using existing ingredients.

I'm sure you can get the restaurant staff to make any of these if you ask, but you have to spell it out in detail every time, and more customization means more chance of error. Permanent menu items are best.

Are there any restaurant chains (named above or otherwise) that you'd combine ingredients from to make something new if you could?

I would try a Jersey Mike's original Italian sub, served on bread made to taste and feel like Olive Garden's breadsticks.

A friend suggested Panera Bread's creamy tomato soup, served in a bread bowl made from Red Lobster's cheddar bay biscuits.

Once in a while, I order a pizza sub at Subway: A meatball marinara sub with extra provolone cheese, pepperoni, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and black olives. I just wish that mozzarella was available.
