Today, the Subway brand is the world's largest submarine sandwich chain with more than 38,000 locations around the world and the leading choice for people seeking quick, nutritious meals that the whole family can enjoy.
Subway serves thousands of made-to-order sandwiches daily, including the popular footlong sandwich…or is it? Well, it looks like we need to pull out the measuring tape for this one.
Two New Jersey men sued Subway this week, claiming Subway has been shorting them by selling so-called footlong sandwiches that measure a little less than 12 inches.
The suit may be the first legal filing targeting the sandwich shops after a photo someone posted went viral last week of a foot long and a ruler on the company's Facebook page to show that the sandwich was not as long as advertised.
At the time, the company issued a statement saying that the sandwich length can vary a bit when franchises do not bake to the exact corporate standards.
Maybe, they need to change their jingle to five--five dollar--five dollar 11 inches long. Never mind. That isn’t as catchy.
