Ah yes, we all remember when that $5 footlong song got stuck in our heads. Eventually, though, it seemed to just disappear. What happened to the $5 footlong?

Before we get too far into this, I just want to make sure everyone knows what a $5 footlong was. It was a sandwich deal that Subway made. A sandwich that was well, a foot long. Obviously the footlong is still at subway, but it’s now sold for $6.99.

Now let’s get into the juicy stuff. Many Subway franchise owners are suing Subway corporate office because they claim, “Profits are dropping.” These franchise owners want the $5 dollar footlong back.

They think this great deal will attract a lot more customers. But the $5 footlong ended February 2016. So why are they suing now?

That is the question many have asked. Many people have gotten the idea that over time they were slowly losing profits and realized just suddenly.

This is very confusing to Stacey student Kevin Luu, as he says, “I just think they had a shortage of supplies and/or loss of money.”

This is a very interesting and mysterious topic. It is also controversial among franchise owners, customers, and the corporate office. Why do you think Subway stopped selling the $5 footlong?
