Subway Foot-Longs Don’t Measure Up

The Subway chain is known for its $5 foot-long sandwiches, but have you ever actually measured your sub? Well, one man did, and it was only 11 inches!

The Australian man posted a picture on Subway’s Facebook page with the caption, “subway pls respond.”

The page with the picture appears to be no longer available on Facebook.

But screengrabs taken of the image that were re-posted online show the photo got more than 131,000 likes and thousands of comments.

The New York post took up the cause and conducted its own investigation in New York City.

According to the Post, four out of seven foot-longs purchased at Subways in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, were only 11 or 11.5 inches.

Subway says that the length of its subs can vary depending on the bread, which is baked fresh daily at each restaurant.

“We are committed to providing a consistent product delivering the same amount of bread to the customer with every order,” the chain said in a statement.

“The length however may vary slightly when not baked to our exact specifications,” the statement continues.

“We are reinforcing our policies and procedures in an effort to ensure our offerings are always consistent no matter which Subway restaurant you visit.”
