(9/11/2018) - Subway is saying so long to the $5 footlong.

The company now says it'll let each shop decide whether to sell the sandwich.

Back in December, the sandwich chain announced it would bring back a new take on the old deal, charging $4.99 for a footlong.

While popular with customers, 400 angry franchise owners signed a petition in protest, saying the deal was cutting into their already slim profit margins.
