Footlong…Minus 1″? Subway Sub Stirs Controversy
When is a foot just 11″ instead of 12″? When it comes to subs, apparently. Sandwich chain Subway came under social media scrutiny over a popular offering.
FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo reports:
One of the world’s largest fast-food chains taking some social media heat over its vaunted sandwich.
(Subway commercial) “Everyone loves Subway $5 footlongs!”
Which some say occasionally fall short of their advertised length. It started after an Australian man posted a picture on the company’s Facebook page of one of the sandwiches next to a tape measure, seeming to show the sub an inch shy; lookalike pictures popping up elsewhere on Facebook.
Now, a spokesman for Subway saying the length of the sandwiches can vary slightly when the bread is baked at each location, which are not made to the chain’s specifications. But they are urging stores to be more consistent.
