I'd be okay there's some leeway with natural variation to the bread rising... as long as they're within an inch one way or the other I think it's okay. Now if they go down to 10 inches, it's a whole different story.

Looks like some of the franchisees don't proof the bread long enough.

Whether it is 11" or 12" is really irrelevant. They are not going to add more dough; they're going to stretch the bread. Also, you're going to get the same amount of toppings; the extra inch is not going to add another slice of meat.

When they make the sandwich, they should lay a cucumber slice on each end that sticks out about 1/2 inch.
 
2013-01-17 08:25:49 PM
If I were Subway I would argue that the term "Footlong" is a marketing term for a sandwich of approximately one foot in length and is not a guarantee that the sandwich will be precisely one foot long.

Also, anyone expecting fresh bread prepared by unskilled and minimally trained workers earning minimum wage to be universally uniform is sort of an idiot.
 
2013-01-17 08:29:25 PM
That's just carpenter math at work. Or you could say lumber manufacturer math.

//a 2" x 4" is actually: 1 1/2 in × 3 1/2 in (38 mm × 89 mm)
/either way, it's reduced size for the same price
 
2013-01-17 08:29:46 PM
Subway, the largest fast-food chain the world, has more than 38,000 restaurants in 100 countries.

IIRC that works out to 38,000 individual bakeries each producing at least a hundred loaves a day. And I bet they're nowhere near six-sigma in baking. So we have a large sample size in the bread department with proscribed meat and cheese slices which probably are sliced at or near six-sigma.

Of course, when I want a sub I hit Jimmy John's.
/Why can't women read maps?
// Because men insist that (hold hands about 6 inches apart) this is a foot long
 
2013-01-17 08:30:04 PM
The English handle something like this with the bakers creating the bakers' dozen and I say we do the same thing here. Lets create a law with a ridiculous punishment that would scare them into making a Subway's footlong sub of 13". In the long run it will play into their profits but not enough to lay anyone off.

/I wonder if the foot has been standardized legally
//oh wait, it has been established

first off, the doh comes frozen off a truck, and like all franchys, everything is done exactly the same way, the doh rises for the exact same amount of time, and in the exact same pans/ little net doh rising thingy.

lastly, this isnt news. every time i go to subway they give me a hard time about adding toppings, I even had some random guy try to tell me he couldnt put any more pickles or olives on my sandwhich. he then tried to lie and said he would get into trouble, (you know, typical childish stuff when you catch someone in a lie).

and, its not just at that subway that, that happened.

you see, when you import work from india and give them a 30k to re train them for whatever trade they claim to be bringing here to canada, what they usually do with that money, is pool it together (because the whole damn family comes here) and buy something like a max store, or a subway, and if theres a lot of them, a wendys or something. then, because there so over populated and incredibly competative and deceitfull, they usually cut corners, skim off the top, screw there employees around for pay, treat them bad. etc.

now before you fark lot call me a racist i want to remind you that in india they will hate on you for being just one shade to dark, and typically the darker you are the poorer and worse your treated.

i know a few good east indians, but every one ive ever worked for, or whoever attained a position of power in a company here in canada, was a complete racist, and took advantage of everything they could, at every opportunity.

I have to agree. I don't know how subway has survived this long. They bring nothing to the table.

We have a convenience store / gas station that actually has better subs than subway by a wide margin. Made to order right there fresh with bread they've made. I know it sounds stupid. Same store sells those nasty sandwiches and pizza slices that sit under a heater. But the sandwiches are really quite good. Now if you can't beat a gas station on flavor of you sandwich and that's all you do is make sandwiches, perhaps you should try harder.

The way I look at it is like this: If the bread isn't as big as advertised, I have a better meat+veg:bread ratio, which is preferable considering how little food Subway employees are allowed to put on their sandwiches without being required to charge extra. And I know this because I have worked for Subway several times in my life and, bar none, it is the worst job in the world (however, it has the most flexible hours out of any place I've worked which was the only reason I worked for them repeatedly).

Trust me, it really shouldn't be considered a bad thing if you're getting less Subway. Oh, but for more fun, order their giant subs. The 3' or 6' ones. The amount of length you'll end up missing on those is actually something worth b*tching about.

jbrooks544: ski9600: That's just carpenter math at work. Or you could say lumber manufacturer math.

//a 2" x 4" is actually: 1 1/2 in × 3 1/2 in (38 mm × 89 mm)
/either way, it's reduced size for the same price

Truth is, it starts off 2x4, rough cut. It is then planed and sanded, finishing at 1.5 x 3.5. = bad analogy.


I heard it was the drying that really did it.

mraudacia: first off, the doh comes frozen off a truck, and like all franchys, everything is done exactly the same way, the doh rises for the exact same amount of time, and in the exact same pans/ little net doh rising thingy.

lastly, this isnt news. every time i go to subway they give me a hard time about adding toppings, I even had some random guy try to tell me he couldnt put any more pickles or olives on my sandwhich. he then tried to lie and said he would get into trouble, (you know, typical childish stuff when you catch someone in a lie).

and, its not just at that subway that, that happened.

you see, when you import work from india and give them a 30k to re train them for whatever trade they claim to be bringing here to canada, what they usually do with that money, is pool it together (because the whole damn family comes here) and buy something like a max store, or a subway, and if theres a lot of them, a wendys or something. then, because there so over populated and incredibly competative and deceitfull, they usually cut corners, skim off the top, screw there employees around for pay, treat them bad. etc.

now before you fark lot call me a racist i want to remind you that in india they will hate on you for being just one shade to dark, and typically the darker you are the poorer and worse your treated.

i know a few good east indians, but every one ive ever worked for, or whoever attained a position of power in a company here in canada, was a complete racist, and took advantage of everything they could, at every opportunity.

five alive yoh.


You should have gave them "blankets" like we did here in America. Silly Canadians and your poutine and Justin Beiber.

Oysterman: The Angry Hand of God: From Dictionary.com:


foot·long
[foot-lawng, -long] Show IPA
adjective
1.
approximately one foot in length: Their specialty is footlong hotdogs.
noun
2.
something that is approximately one foot in length.


Anyone who is complaining has never looked up the definition of the actual word.

Their 6-inch subs are actually 5.5 inches. Resume outrage.

...Unless you need to feel better than everyone else by saying that 6 inches doesn't have to be 6 inches too.

That's not important. What is important is that they are supposed to put on slice of pickle on the sandwich. It's so enshrined in their corporate philosophy that the sticker for the sandwiches that have no pickle actually say "NO PICKLE". So I opened up my sandwich after I bought it to count the single solitary pickle but was left aghast by what was on the sandwich. Not one, not none, not even two, but THREE. THREE WHOLE SLICES of pickle! It was disgusting. Never before have I been so humiliated as I was at lunch today. I didn't even have the stomach to complain to the manager.

The numbnuts even locked himself in the freezer. Kid was twice the worker this man is yet will never see 1/1,000th of the pay check. Sad sad economic system we have.

Believe it or not, the guy wasn't lying. Subway considers pickles and olives a garnish, not a topping, and they're only supposed to add so many per sandwich, I forget how many it is, like 2 or 3 per 6 inch. Now most places don't adhere to this rule because it's just damn stupid, you usually only have a problem if you go to one of their company owned restaurants versus a franchise.

They've quietly raised the prices of those "$5" footlongs (and all their other sandwiches) 25 to 50 cents twice over the past year alone. Now only 3 or 4 out of 6 or 7 $5 choices are left here. Plus, they stopped adding points on the rewards cards as of December 1st.

Weight is really the best way to measure bread. The average person should be expected to realize that the terms foot long or six inch can not and do not indicate a specific amount of bread and Subway cannot therefore be held accountable for false advertising. If Subway wanted to they could bake you a three foot long bread stick. You wouldn't be getting any more actual bread but at least it would be a more suitable size for cleaning the sand from your vagina.

shinjitsuism: Jersey


Jersey Mikes is nothing but Subway with more flair. Have you looked at the unsliced meat they prominently display in the cooler? The perfectly uniform, homogenous, blocks of processed meat ("with water added!!"). They have fake prosciutto (that's why they have to call it some fabricated name like "prosciuttini "). Subway pre-slices their crap and throws it into the bin until someone orders it. Jersey Mike's, on the other hand, slices their crap right in front of you and pretends it isn't crap.

moefuggenbrew: I felt bad watching undercover boss, an 18 year old kid run a subway restaurant really efficiently, when the CEO showed up, he was slow, terrible, and had the attitude of 'oh well it can wait' talking to people in line and stuff when they clearly just wanted to exchange money for a sub and get out as quickly as possible. The numbnuts even locked himself in the freezer. Kid was twice the worker this man is yet will never see 1/1,000th of the pay check. Sad sad economic system we have.

Back in the late 80s early 90s I worked at subway during High School. A great way to feed yourself IMHO. $1 footlongs, and free soda when I worked there. I would often eat one while working and have another when I left.

Typical problem with any chain that tries to cut costs. you start with fresh ingredients and then slowly over the years you switch over to cheaper lower quality ingredients over time hoping the customer wouldn't notice, until finally you are not getting any new customers because some local store is making a better sandwich. So what do you do? make cheaper ingredients or have add-on's that you charge people for.

jbrooks544: ski9600: That's just carpenter math at work. Or you could say lumber manufacturer math.

//a 2" x 4" is actually: 1 1/2 in × 3 1/2 in (38 mm × 89 mm)
/either way, it's reduced size for the same price

Truth is, it starts off 2x4, rough cut. It is then planed and sanded, finishing at 1.5 x 3.5. = bad analogy.


It not a bad analogy. The bread starts out 12 inches long. After being handled, cut, filled wrapped and squished into a bag, the bread is compressed by an inch. This isn't that hard to figure out.

Measure the bread before anything is done to it and I bet it's 12 inches.

And NO ONE has mentioned that they aren't measuring it properly anyways. You have to start from the 1" mark.

someone going to subway and complaining their sub was 11 inches isn't complaining about the right thing at subway. like complaining about a double cheeseburger at mcdonalds. you get what you pay for.

thismomentinblackhistory: Contrabulous Flabtraption: Every subway sandwich tastes identical regardless of what you have them put on it

This, this, this. You may as well skip the cheese, too, since it has no farking flavor.


I think that if you stacked up all of the meat and cheese from a typical Subway sub the stack would be about 1/4 of an inch thick. They give you 6 paper thin pieces of meat and 4 pieces of cheese sliced so thin you can see through it.

I just refer to them as salad sandwiches. Their bread is ok.

Quizno's, Jersey Mike's, and Penn Station all have better subs.

I agree with the fact that it isn't the inch that is the problem, but it's the principle of it. People should also give Subway the benefit of the doubt instead of going ape shiat over something that could just be an honest mistake. It could all come down to, like someone commented earlier and was mentioned in the article, that the bread isn't cooked to Subway's specifications. The people saying they'll never eat there again will be back in a week craving their meatball sub with black olives, cucumbers, and hot sauce.

You have got to be shiatting me.

Do these same people go to a hot wings place and sue because their "boneless chicken wings" are not ACTUALLY made of chicken WINGS?

FFS, people, maybe the bread shrank a little during the baking process. Maybe it got cut a bit wrong in the slicer. Maybe they figured nobody ate the last 3/4" of the bread anyway. Maybe your fat ass doesn't need the last inch of bread. Go get a real problem.

I've a couple of question for all of the complainers. Subway serves thousands of sandwiches every hour. Probably tens of thousands. Do you really expect each and every foot long to never be less than 12 inches? And if the foot longs you got were 13 inches, would you be complaining?

When they put them in the bag, they are standing upright. Their own weight will shrink them out some. If it is 11 inches, simply push down on the bread, tug a little, extra inch.

Even though they're not listed on the menu, they'll make you a BLT or a meatball sub if you ask for it. It'll take a bit longer to cook the bacon or meatballs, but if you order it before you start shopping, it'll be ready to pick up by the time you're done getting everything on your list. The turkey cranberry subs are also awesome, but they're only available around Thanksgiving.

Also, bacon, mayo, black olives and salt. The tuna salad also has a sour flavor. How can people say Subway has no taste with flavors as caustic as those?
