How has Subway survived this long? -

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.
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.

Come to think of it, despite its recent prevalence here I've never been to Subway's. Keeping it that way is probably a good idea.

Business Insider did a video about this a while back.


Anyone remember the punch cards where you'd get a free sub after seven punches? One of the reasons my friends and I would go there for lunch in high school.

This may be controversial, but I honestly prefer Subway over Firehouse Subs.

Not because Subway's great or anything, but I'm just not a fan of Firehouse's food.

I haven't tried Jersey Mike's yet, and I've been meaning to.

Subway is so big because Subway is everywhere. It was really cheap to license and operate and had two things going for it for a long time: It was America's "Healthy" fast food option forever, and you could get a gigantic sandwich for under 10 bucks. People never remark how many places there are to eat Subway in the country, but there's nearly 25,000 places to eat Subway in America. This is after hard times recently that saw them lose thousands of locations. That's 10,000 more places to get Subway than places to get Starbucks or McDonald's. There's as many places to eat Subway as there are places to get Starbucks and McDonald's put together and none of the competitor subs can beat that volume. They're fucking EVERYWHERE.

I can't stand subway. The sandwiches are bland with low quality everything but worst of all it has a weird phantom smell that sticks to your clothes.

Boards Head ftw.

Edit* Ninja'd, Looks like a bunch of you have mentioned the weird smell already. I can't believe a place can be that successful and smell that bad.

I have a love-hate relationship with Subway. While I agree their sandwiches leave a lot to be desired they're still tasty when prepared right. However, there are times when I felt like returning several sandwiches to Subway because they were terrible and the employees were jerks!

One day I would love to try other sandwich shops like Togo's, Firehouse Subs and Beach Hut Deli. Before they opened a Subway in the casino I had the chance to get a sandwich from Beach Hut Deli but I got a Fat Burger instead.

I may love me some Subway but I always have to call out when I go to my local, and wait long enough so that I could probably just take all their chips and cooler drinks.

I used to like subway until I started working at one in 2014. Worked up to shift manager before landing my first (barely) IT job in December. At first I liked the free employee meals since subway had been one of my favorite fast food chains. But I got burned out pretty quick, realized just how bad the chicken was and got redpilled on soy. Actually had the store owner straight up tell us to lie to customers when it came out about the chicken being like 50% actual chicken.

They're trying to revamp and act like theyre bringing in healthier stuff but I dont think it's gonna last. Fuck Subway, DiBella's is the shit

The smell of subway as you pass by it is absolutely hideous. What smells so bad? It reeks and you can smell it a mile off
It's the sourdough bread being baked. Ick.

I have only had Jersey Mike’s catering but I like it a lot more than Subway. Firehouse is pretty good too. Both are leagues better than Subway in terms of quality.

I've known a couple people that worked at a subway and they both say the same thing: the chicken is absolutely disgusting. If it's even edible chicken when fresh, it certainly isn't after it's been sitting out for over a day and then re-used the next.

It's pretty good for what it is.

Isn't the chicken like 30% soy or some other filler?

That's true, I've seen Subways in some pretty remote, out of the way places and the closest fast food chain to me right where I is live is in fact a Subway.

>All these goyim paying more than $10 on a sub

I don't care about quality, given the sub doesn't taste bad or like it's rotten or something. I care more about how much it'll cost me to get lunch and how much I can get for $10. I can get a footlong deluxe Spicy Italian with Jalapeneo chips for like $9 at Subway and I don't see why anyone would care about the quality of food past it not tasting like absolute garbage if it's more expensive and you get less bang for your buck, like you do at Jimmy John's, Firehouse or all these other places.

Meatball subs on Italian bread for 5 bucks. Also the land whales who believe it's healthy because you can add salad shit to a sub.
