Disadvantages: You can get a bit greedy and order the 12"
Everywhere you go now, you walk past a Subway, they are opening them up everywhere, i'm not complaining because you can't beat a good fresh Subway sandwich.
The Subway chain was founded by Fred DeLuca in Connecticut, USA, in 1965. The company has since grown into a multi-billion pound business with around 25,000 stores in over 80 countries.
Subway aims to increase the number of outlets it has in the UK and Ireland to over 2,010 by the year 2010.
Subway beats its all time record for the number of franchises sold in one year in 2003, and now around 70% of new Subway franchises are sold to existing owners, and in 2006 Subway chain was again named number one franchise opportunity.
** My Thoughts about Subway**
I'm not a lover of the sandwiches which are pre-made, so once i come across Subway in America i have become addicted to them in England. With Subway you get a wide range of choice, you can choose what meat you want in your Sub, i.e. Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki, Beef, Chicken Breast, and they also offer a Veggie Delite sub. Once you have chosen your meat, you then get to choose your own fresh salad, tomatos, luttuce, sweetcorn, onion, gurkins and lots lots more, then you add your sauce.
When ordering your sub you get a choice of sizes, 6" or 12", and a choice of bread too, Italian (white) bread, wheat bread, Parmesan Oregano Bread, Honey Oat, Hearty Italian bread and Italian Herbs and Cheese. I usually go for the 6" Hearty Italian because Subway are so generous in their portions, i really am unable to fit in another 6" Subway, however much i'd love too because they always taste sooo good.
If a Subway is not enough, you can also get a meal deal, this is where you get a drink, packets of crisps or cookie and your sub. Prices depend on the meat you have in the sub, and the size.
The prices of the Subway can sometimes seem a little high, if your getting a 12", you can expect to pay around £5. However, Subway now offer a sub of the day deal. Each day a Subway is £1.99, below are the days of each subway:-
Monday - Turkey Breast and Ham
Tuesday - Meatball Mariana
Wednesday - Turkey Breast
Thursday - Italian B.M.T
Friday - Classic Tuna
Saturday - Ham
Sunday - Spicy Italian
These have not changed in all the months Subway have been running the deal.
If you are not a bread eater, Subway also offer fresh Salads, Subway Club, Grilled Chicken, Tuna and Veggie Delite.
When buying a Subway, you will get a napkin in the bag. This is brilliant because it shows you all the nutrition information for each Subway. If you are looking for a low fat sub, then the best sub sandwichs to get would be from the Lite Subs, these are:-
Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki
Turkey Breast & Ham
Obviously like any sandwich, a lot of bread is not great for you. So if you don't make a habbit of having Subway every day for lunch/dinner, then having the odd Subway is not bad for you. Why not try the Subway Salads, the Veggie Delite salad counts as 2 of the recommended 5 daily servings of fruit and veg.
** Overall Thoughts**
I LOVE subway. They always taste really good, and because i usually buy the sub of the day option, it doesn't work out that expensive either.
If you are yet to try Subway, pop into the next Subway you walk past, you won't regret it.
Summary: If you like eating fresh, try Subway
