Subway discontinues $5 footlong to boost franchisee profits
(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.
