Doesn’t Measure Up

So, recently someone measured a Subway sandwich and found out it doesn’t measure up. The foot longs (12 inches in a foot) are really only eleven. Subway counteracted by claiming the bread wasnt cooked to their specifications. That statement didn’t cut it so they went to the legal jargon saying “footlong” is a product description and not a measurement. Now everyone is “Subwaying” – taking photos of their sandwich next to a ruler, yard stick, measuring tape.

These photos are a Quiznos ad in the making. The biggest part of this in my opinion is the reaction from Subway. We all know when McDonald’s says quarter pound or Angus 1/3rd pound the fine print says precooked patty weight.

For Subway to come out at first and try to say that that particular sandwich wasn’t up to standard was a low blow and they had to know other people would measure up. On the other hand, if they give you an extra inch of bread, their meat already comes in predetermined selections ( 4 meatballs for a “footlong” 2 for a 6 inch.) Is it really that big a deal? @Royal_U_G 1royalradio.com
