Local Subway Shops May Do Away With Popular Item
A good price point, a solid sandwich and a legendary jingle isn't enough to save a 12 inch sandwich according to a Subway CEO. Starting this month, Subway restaurant owners will have the option to do away with the 5 Dollar Footlong.
According to the USA Today, the change takes effect this month. The $5 foot-long had been off the menu for years when subway gave it a second life last winter.
The chain is pushing franchise owners to experiment with their own value deals based on business costs.
As of June 2017, Subway has about 45,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries.
