Do Not Call 9-1-1 When Subway Puts The Wrong Sauce On Your Flatizza

Do Not Call 9-1-1 When Subway Puts The Wrong Sauce On Your Flatizza

If a restaurant makes your pizza–or, in the case of Subway, your Flatizza–incorrectly, you’re entitled to a refund. You should not, however, try to enlist the help of local law enforcement by calling 9-1-1 to report a crime against pizza. When a South Carolina woman did exactly that last week, she was sent to jail and released on bond, charged with misuse of the 9-1-1 system. [More]

At Subway, You Can Have Any Soup As Long As It’s Broccoli Cheddar

At Subway, You Can Have Any Soup As Long As It’s Broccoli Cheddar

“Still waiting for the third version to complete this fuel pump trifecta,” writes Taylor. Actually, my question was this: if there were a third broccoli cheddar soup sign, would that one have 190 per calories per serving? The calorie count is increasing from left to right, so it would make sense. [More]

Subway Makes Safe Bet That College Students Like Pizza

Subway Makes Safe Bet That College Students Like Pizza

First we learned that Chipotle was investing in pizza, although not by serving them up in their restaurants alongside the burrito bowls. Now we’ve learned that Subway is taking their experimental instant personal pizza concept and turning it into an entire restaurant. The bad news: it’s only for college students for now. [More]

Subway Falafel Sandwich Points Toward Future Of Dry Vegetarian Food On Every Corner

Subway Crosses Its Heart, Swears To Die: From Now On, All Footlongs Will Indeed Be 12 Inches

Whether it’s because of the way bread rises and how it’s baked or there’s some nefarious conspiracy afoot, perhaps now everyone can simmer down about Subway’s Footlongs not always being in fact, a foot long. Subway is telling the world that honest, guys, we never meant to make a sandwich 11 or 11.5 inches, so please believe us and stop being so cranky. Not in so many words, but that’s the gist. [More]

Ex-Subway Sandwich Artist On Short Footlongs: You Still Get The Same Amount Of Ingredients

Unless you’ve been hiding under a gluten-free rock, by now you’ve heard about Subway customers who are enraged, simply enraged, to the point of suing, that their so-called Footlong sandwiches are measuring only 11 or 11.5 inches. But while some might point to an evil corporate conspiracy at work, one ex-sandwich artist says we should probably relax, as the amount of ingredients in each sandwich should be the same. [More]

Give’em An Inch Or They’ll Take A Mile: Two Customers Suing Subway Over 11-Inch Footlongs

Who knew that taking a ruler to a Subway Footlong sandwich would spiral into such a hullabaloo in less than a week? People are serious about their sandwiches, enough so that two New Jersey men are now suing Subway for advertising footlong food and handing out 11- or 11.5-inch sandwiches instead. [More]

Mother Probably Less Concerned With Size Of Subway Sandwich Than The Glass Shards In It

Today’s news is all shards and we haven’t stopped cringing: First it was the potential for metal shards in pizza and now a mother is claiming her three-year-old daughter ate pieces of glass that were allegedly inside her Subway sandwich. Kinda makes all those complaints of 11-inch Footlongs seem a bit less important because hey, at least they’re shard-free. [More]

What A Difference An Inch Makes: Report Says Some Subway Footlongs Are Only 11 Inches

What you pay for should be what you get, which is why some Subway customers are up in arms that they’re not getting their money’s worth. See, they didn’t pay for 11- or 11.5-inch subs. Nope, they paid for a footlong, meaning 12 inches, and if a new (albeit totally unscientific) report is true, customers are routinely being shorted. [More]

Subway Reportedly Hitching Its Wagon To Sriracha’s Star With Test Of “Creamy Sauce”

Everybody loves Sriracha, and by that I of course mean that at least like 37 people in my life have professed an undying, almost unholy affection for the stuff. Which is why it’s kinda surprising that it’s taken a fast food joint this long to introduce the beloved substance to its menu: Subway is reportedly testing a “Creamy Sriracha Sauce” at select locations in California. To the jet! Quickly! [More]

What It’s Like To Work At A Subway Franchise, Get Blamed For Everything Customers Don’t Like

Reader M. is currently (under-) employed at a Subway franchise. M. has a college degree, and is bright enough to be able to see the economic indicators that show they’ll still be working at Subway for a while yet. Fortunately, we like to give employees a soapbox to educate the public about the things we might not understand about their jobs. That way, Consumerist readers are less likely to act like entitled jerks, treat front-line employees better, and the world is a happier place. In theory. [More]

Fun With Fonts: How Subway Tries To Distract You From Realizing How Little Olive Oil Is In This Packet

While it may look like something slapped together in an Intro to InDesign class, this vegetable oil packet from Subway makes for a good demonstration on how to obscure information you need to include but don’t really want people seeing. [More]

Wendy's Unseats The Burger King In Fast Food Rankings

Both Burger King and Wendy’s have been attempting to revamp their look and their menus in recent years, but it looks like whatever Wendy’s is doing is working slightly better as the fast food company edged out Burger King to become the second-largest burger chain — and the #3 overall fast food joint — in the country.

When Is Dinner Time Not Dinner Time?

When Is Dinner Time Not Dinner Time?

When is “dinner?” Josh had a Subway coupon with the words “Dinner Time” on it, but no time restrictions in the fine print. He went to use the coupon around 1:00 PM at a local Subway franchise, and their cash register wouldn’t accept it. He feels that Subway owes him a dollar, and now refuses to go back. Is he overreacting, or does Subway need to define when “dinner” starts? [More]
