Sandwich saga at Subway!

Recently the fast food restaurant chain Subway announced it would live up to its promise of ‘a foot long sandwich’. The announcement follows days after two men filed a lawsuit in the states (where else would anyone do this?) contesting the company was skimping on its sandwich size.

Subway said “it regrets ‘any instance’ where we did not fully deliver on our promise to our customers.” Subway said it will ‘ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches long at each location worldwide.’
