Size DOES Matter - Subway

234 posts in this topic

In the face of mounting consumer pressure and pending lawsuits Subway acknowledged that a "footlong" sub should be 12 inches in length.

Subway is apologizing that its “Footlong” sandwiches fell short of expectations.

The world’s largest fast-food chain faced widespread criticism last week after a man posted a photo online showing a “Footlong” next to a tape measure that showed it to be just 11 inches. Subway said Friday that it’s redoubling efforts to “ensure consistency and correct length” in all its sandwiches.

The company had already noted last week that bread length could vary when franchisees don’t bake to its exact specifications and that it would reinforce policies to ensure consistency.

In a statement Friday, Subway expressed “regret” for “any instance where we did not fully deliver on our promise to our customers.”

It declined to comment on lawsuit filed this week by two New Jersey men over the subs.

Why?

This is basic consumer law - you must deliver what is promised.

If you read the claim you will see that McDonald's is clear that the 1/4 pound refers to uncooked weight of the meat patty (in metric 113.4 grams).

Quarter Pounder with Cheese®

It’s 100% pure Canadian beefy cheesiness. It tastes great, and it knows it. Two slices of melting processed cheddar cheese, a quarter pound* of 100% pure Canadian beef on a toasted sesame seed bun. It’s a simple recipe, but it works.

*Weight before cooking at least 113.4g.

Subway has made no such reservation and according to the company HQ the subs are expected to be 12 inches in length when baked.

I feel so lucky to live in a part of the world where some of the major problems are that a footlong sub is only 11 inches long.

Says who?

I've read other articles where they said it was simply just a name.

I laughed

One of the goals of tort law is to change unlawful (in a civil sense) behaviour and it seems to have worked in this case.
