@Rainna I think the saying was "bad press is better than no press", but it essentially related to forties and fifties movie stars that had a scandal or two, not a company that wants to sell food to essentially everyone. Some of those everyones are going to care about the bad press.

John Oliver put more effort into finding actors that can speak the language than anyone else in Hollywood ever did.

@Kelly Riddell I think it may have been. At first I thought it wasn’t since most signs are in English, but then I can see Korean signs as well and Korean costs on the menu. “Best Menu” is also not something said in the U.S., but is in Korea. Also the stop sign outside is partially blocked, but you can kinda see part of what says “성지 STOP”. I spent way too much time analyzing this to confirm where it was filmed. If this is actually a set in the US, they did a dang good job

They forgot to tell that in Canada, the public broadcaster produced a show where they basically demonstrated that the chicken was not chicken, but instead it was a mix of flour and chicken. Subway sued the broadcaster and lost the pursuit.

Ya know, I get why she went with steak and cheese instead of veggie sandwich. Veggie sandwich guy always suggested to her something low carb and low calorie. He always suggested that she stay in a shape that pleases him. Steak and cheese guy encourages her to enjoy the pleasures of life, and that he likes her however she wants to be. She chose the guy who let liking him be _her_ choice. In the end, the tuna really does suck.

Jared was doing a promotion for a local Subway some years back and my friends mom, who was working radio PR for the event, and invited me. After the event officially ended Jared and his agent were talking to us privately. My friends mom, after a bit, got him to admit they he didn't lose wait from only eat Subway, but from a healthy diet, going to the gym, and taking care of himself. The whole "I only ate Subway," bit has always been bs. John Oliver's coverage of Subway only confirms in my mind how scuzzy Subway is and always has been.

I owned a franchise many years ago. I can attest that the tuna truly was canned chunk light tuna. We made big batches at a time using nothing but the tuna and full-fat mayonnaise. Only weird part was the recipe required equal amounts of drained tuna and mayo. That's a LOT of mayo. Poor fish drowned in it.

I worked for a franchise owner for 10yrs when I was younger. My friends and family would tell me "you should open your own subway" No way. I see the crap my owner had to put up with. I remember they were worried about a subway going in a hospital across the street from our location. They were struggling to bid for that location so they wouldn't loose profits. They opened another new location for the same reason and it was in the negative for over a year. Thank god they had their first store to cover for the losses of the second. Subway Head office is deplorable.

about 10 years ago, Subway forced the closer of a Vegetarian Health food restaurant in Gross PT, MI called the Atomic Cafe for competition. at first, they tried using the law that two similar businesses had to be so many feet apart but it was ruled Atomic Cafe catering to veggie health food sandwiches and soup was a different type of establishment. then it went for doorway heights and counter top heights and it just kept going.

A note that I need to give to the people watching on the off chance this makes the rounds. The FTC is arguably the most toothless government agency. For his suggestion to work not only would congress need to overturn a supreme court decision basically saying 'you can't even send a cease and desist' they would also need to allocate the funding to enforce their rulings.

My last boss told me, "We're like a family here" without making any eye contact. My irregular stammer kicked in when I was on the phone one day in front of the boss. Next day, I found out (third-hand through an agency) that I was fired. Partly because I "didn't make eye contact with people". I've learned over the years that anyone that uses 'family' in a business context are just trying to tell you that you will be fighting a lot and that they can make you feel terrible about yourself. They never had me sign any documents and didn't put me through induction or any training. That said - 'Toyworld', where I worked for a fortnight before learning there was a staff toilet, and another fortnight before I felt like one.

The bread issue in Ireland was due to tax purposes. Bread is considered a staple food and has a lower tax rate compared to cake which is a luxury and has a higher rate. Subway bread was found to have much more sugar than bread normally does, so it was argued that it was cake. It's just bad bread.

@Jen Elaina what you just described are technically "confections " ...sweetened dough etc. What subway does is give people an extra buzz and it in turn creates a dependancy, an addiction to the product. The bread/cake controversy was a tax evasion case.

The thing about subway is that you typically get the same ingredients on whatever sandwich you're getting, an with the same old selection of ingredients. Basically EVERY sandwich seems to taste about the same. Idk if the little trays they keep the meat and lettuce etc in, are refrigerated beneath or not. I don't think they are but, that's one of the things that has always grossed me out about Subway. Is the meats and cheeses just sitting in those bins all day, an sure they're supposed to change it out and put new stuff in it every so often. But people get lazy about it, you can usually tell the locations that are pretty bad about it. They need to have covers on each and all of the little bins, I think maybe some of them do. But they want you "to see" the "freshness" of the ingredients, which are then open to the air all day lol.. I would never get any of the eggs, tuna or chicken type stuff from there though. If you're going with basic meats like turkey, an the bacon which is obviously cooked and safe lol.. You just need to know what things not to mess with if and when you go to Subway. Then again, they did have ecoli on their spinach or something lol. An maybe even their onions, unless I'm thinking of another place. I know they had something like that go on, or just don't eat there. It beats McDonald's and that kind of fast food though if you really need some quick food, that's for sure.

The “when you “by” a franchise” and “we don’t “fell” sorry for ourselves” things remind me of a sign I saw once in front of a new shawarma take out place in Toronto. It read , “Ground Opening sale, half price shawarma”. I tried explaining it to the guy, but just gave up, wished him good luck with the new business, and took my shawarma.

Our local University Hospital has a branch of Subway, open 24/7, easy to reach (on the ground floor) for patients (who can walk), visitors, and hospital staff. I enjoy several of the sandwiches they offer and that they can make them to order and taste good. I also suspect that the location of this branch, in a hospital, will be very clean and healthy!

Our local Subway owner figured out how to sell a franchise … 😂 was running a Subway + ice-cream shop, presumably without telling HQ they’d modified the menu. AFAIK, they were forced to sell. 🤣👍

I like how they accidentally nailed the Subway skit more than expected. The mean, corrupt boss keeping the humble, worker main character down is one of the most common trope in Korean dramas. This shit checks out

As someone who worked for subway this is all very true. Because of the market they paid me 8.00$ and hour and said that's all they could afford 🤣🤣 you've got me effed up. So I worked for about 6 months and quit because the environment was garbage and toxic. Not a great place in general.

Worked at subway for 3 years across two locations. First location I worked at the store manager was fired (rather beautifully) for laundering money by stealing from the minimum wage employees paycheques when money would “go missing from the safe”. Was permanently removed from the schedule at the second location I worked at after trying to tell my boss that I was being sexually harassed. Subway is probably the best job I’ve had tho which is incredibly depressing to admit.

@Heather in Kansas Lol, thanks Heather but don't worry. I wouldn't exactly classify this as "troubles". More like a vaguely amusing annoyance. If you ever need to block someone on here, just click on their name and then the flag icon below the view-count on their channel's home tab. It should be the first option in the dropdown menu. Then they won't even be able to see your comments, let alone reply to them.

I don't even know how Subway still exists, it's been years since I've seen customers inside one of their places. Hell, I've maybe ordered 3 of their sandwiches in the last 5 years and every single time I was the only person in there.

"they have an incentive to find violations" apart from what John said, they probably also have cash incentives for marking off during inspections... I've heard that the company I work for does that for their regional inspectors.

I actually like subway. Maybe it's the quality of ingredients where I live, or that I've been lucky, or that I could be a degenerate, but I've enjoyed their sandwiches so far. If anything, the reason I don't always eat there is because they are very expensive, the prices are not at all worth the sandwich imo. I'll have to agree with the tuna, I have never gotten one of those, but it doesn't look appetizing.
