How has Subway survived this long? -

I haven't been to Shitway in years. The last time was because I had a coupon and before that was when they still did five-dollar foot longs. Franchises expanded like rabbits earlier in the decade to the point that there would be ones across the street from each other. Today I can only think of a couple still in business at the top of my head. I think they took advantage of the shitty financial situation, but when the economy started to recover, fast casual chains became more prevalent, and Jared Fogle scandal, it really hit them.

Oh, and GOD DAMN THE SMELL IN EVERY STORE! It's like a cloth chair sat on by a fat Mexican impregnated with braps. Get rid of the smell, and maybe it'll be an okay place to get a bite to eat out of haste.

One of the only few good things about Florida is Publix supermarkets every other mile, You can customize your sammich like Subway, it's Boar's Head stuff, and you can order and even pay online, interacting with as little people as possible.

I figured it's for the sake of convenience why they got to the top, coupled with the demographic who are known to take corporate self-serving nobility beyond a cheap glossy coat. "Oh look, these guys are healthier than a fucking Big Mac so like give a care already". The only thing I can eat from there once in a blue moon is a cold cut trio, because going beyond basic has resulted in lunch being ruined.

I haven't been to one in years so I have no idea what the quality is now. I do have one on the way to work, but I have no reason to go there when I'm surrounded by deli's where I can get a decent hero for what is assuredly a better price than whatever they got.

The only reason I'll eat at a Subway near my home is because I can use a coupon. But I prefer to go to the Subway at the casino because they give you money's worth in a sandwich. I remember punching two chicken bacon ranch subs because of the deal, and the casino won't take coupons. However, the one near my home subs were fucking horrible! As I mentioned the casino Subway goes all out because a lot of people are hungry but that's no way to make a sub sandwich if looks like something worse then a McDonald's hamburger.

Subway ain't that bad for shitty fast food. At least it's somewhere in the rough neighborhood of healthy if you don't skimp the veggies. It's more than can be said for McDonalds who's salads are often as fatty as their fucking burgers.
Personally I only go to SubWay very rarely and when I do, I get that Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki shit because when I was in jail a few years back I was working on the outdoor cleaning crew and an absolute saint of an old lady passing by gave me a 6" Chicken Teriyaki and holy shit after a few months of bland as fuck jail food that shit tasted like fucking fine dining.
I guess my mind just associates it with that event every time because I really quite enjoy it to this day.

I'm going with lower franchising fees and health halo.

I frequented Subway when I lived literally down the road from one growing up because they had a Meatball Marinara combo on Tuesdays for $4.25 after tax. I can't even remember the last time I've been to a Subway. 2016, maybe? It was before Jared's pedophilia was exposed. I have no real desire to go there. There's a Subway in the shitty shopping center by my house (there four Mexican places next door to each other, WTF ) plus a small business owned sub shop literally across the street from it that has good reviews. I might try that place sometime. The rare time I have a sub hankering I pick one up from Publix or make one myself.

That cheesy-garlic spread they had was good. Of course, it had to be one of those "for a limited time" things.

But really, it's cheap, it's not all greasy, and it doesn't make you feel sluggish after eating it.

I almost never get it anymore but I had my own little combination that I thought tasted pretty good, but it's a pain having to slowly tell the worker what you want on it.

Subway is okay when there's nothing better to eat nearby, but I'd rather go to Firehouse for sandwiches.
Firehouse is set to demolish Subway in terms of revenue and customer theft. Subways are apparently going through some dumb renaissance to stream line customer choices out of their menu, cutting down on sauces, being stricter with shit like wrapping with/without the deli paper, and installing ordering kiosks in their standalone store locations by 2020. People will revolt and go to Firehouse for that sweet, sweet honey-flavored ham no question. Listen, if I want a small scoop of the meatball's marinara on a chicken breast, you fucking do it. Leave my goddamn secret menu alone.

Every part of the US I've lived or spent time in has had superior comparably priced sandwich bars at grocery and corner store chains, with the added bonus of not having looked the other way while their flabby spokesperson touched little kids for years. Publix, Wawa, Safeway. I don't know why anybody would waste money on Subway.

They just need to open more of them. Once one opens that's near where I live, I'll never go to Subway ever again.

It has franchises in a lot of military bases, which can't hurt. God knows after eating military food for a while, one of their subs tasted like manna from heaven.

But then military food for long periods of time fucks up your taste buds. I remember trying a PowerBar right after I got out of boot camp and thought it tasted great. A few months later I had one and damn near gagged.

They've been skimping on ingredients for some time now. Last time I went I wanted a turkey sub, you could barely tell there was any meat in there. Same with the cheese and only the barest hint of chipotle sauce. You better believe there was enough lettuce to build a hut out of though. I'm not asking for some monstrosity like Arby's meat mountain, just make a fucking sandwich the way your customers want.

I'll have to try Firehouse. Jersey Mike's is usually my go-to place.
