If you have to eat fast food while you are out, it would be safe to say that sort of some of the healthier options on some of the fast food menus out there that Subway would usually be the best place to go.
However, if you close enough to home that you are able to get a sandwich from anywhere else that you can think of it might be a good idea to do that because to be perfectly honest Subway doesn’t pack their sandwiches all that big.
They tend to go pretty light on what they give you for what they charge so if you asked someone to make a choice between Subway any anywhere else they would probably choose anywhere else.
That and you have to factor in the idea that they have had some really bad PR the past couple of years…
Subway the restaurant chain has had a hard few years. First, their long-time spokesman and face of the brand, Jared Fogel, was arrested and convicted of charges related to child exploitation and lewd imagery.
He has been stuck in prison ever since and causing a stir with all his attempts to get out of jail. Despite his horrible activity, Subway remained a go-to spot for healthy and fast food.
You can get whole wheat bread and customize your sandwich to your liking.
Nevertheless, the restaurant chain is closing hundreds of shops. After some 900 locations closed in 2017, Subway announced they were closing 500 more in 2018. The business is in transition. And it is floundering because CEO Suzanne Greco has been unable to match the success of co-founder Fred DeLuca, who passed away in 2015.
Greco has worked at Subway since she was a teenager. But franchisees have complained about her role as CEO. They say she has offered inadequate support and has not fostered growth for the company. And Business Insider released a statement that indicated about one-third of the 25,800 Subway locations in the United States might not even be profitable.
One franchisee told Business Insider, “A lot of people in the industry feel that Suzanne is not qualified to be the CEO of the company. She tells us she is doing us a favor while franchisees are losing everything they own.”
Greco needs to step it up. Instead, she is stepping down.
Greco announced that she would retire instead of fighting to keep Subway profitable.
Greco is the sister of Fred DeLuca. He chose her to run the chain as his battle with leukemia was coming to an end.
Now Greco has given up on Subway. And for the first time in 53 years, the fast-food chain will be run by someone outside the family.
