In case you have not heard, there is a huge Subway uproar over 11 inch foot-long sandwiches, according to a Jan. 18 UPI report. The Subway uproar started when Matt Corby of Australia took a picture of his Subway "foot-long" sub that measured only 11 inches. Corby posted the picture to Subway's Facebook page.
From there the outrage took off. Some Subway patrons actually believe that the chain owes them for falsely advertising their foot-log subs (the most famous of which are the $5 foot-longs). Of course, others believe that people are going crazy over nothing. It is one inch, and the bread is baked fresh daily at each location. Of course, the shorter sandwich could lead to questions over the value of the Subway deal.
Subway actually did respond to Corby's 11 inch foot-long sub photo. It said,
Hi, Matt. Thanks for writing. Looking at this photo, this bread is not baked to our standards. We have policies in place to ensure that our fresh baked bread is consistent and has the same great taste no matter which Subway restaurant around the world you visit. We value your feedback and want to thank you again for being a fan.
It is possible that poor quality control caused the Subway uproar, but people throughout the world are noticing foot-long subs that are less than 12 inches. Have you ever measured your Subway sandwich like Matt Corby? If so, was it actually the full 12 inches long?
Even if a Subway foot-long is not 12 inches long, is it still a good deal at $5?
