Only if people keep going back. Just because you put together something that should taste good doesn't matter if poor ingredients are mishandled by some burnout. A bad franchise may give you old bread and wilted, shitty veg and overwhelm the whole thing with too much sauce.

Having the customer in charge of menu design is a big mistake. Skimping on that is strike one against Subway.
Strike two is that the ingredients aren't fresh and progressively get less fresh as the franchise loses customers.
Strike 3 is that they can't produce anything that I can't make at home (or at the office) better cheaper faster than they can make it.
Strike 4 is that it isn't actually healthy for some reason.
And finally, strike 5: Every bakery does the same thing cheaper. Especially the Vietnamese ones.

I swear Subway somehow subsists on a business model of "no one's least favorite". No one ever wants to go to Subway, they only go for one of two reasons:

1. They're in a group and it's a compromise
2. They need a bite to eat and the other couple options don't interest them

I may be wildly wrong, but it's a pet theory.

Always miserable to order there, Subway is after grocery store delis, only if I haven't eaten for more than a day and Subway is the only place available... even then, if I still have granola bars and bottled water in my car I prefer that over the dread of dealing with the tards that work at Subway.
If I must I choose one of the more common sandwiches, making eye contact I slowly with careful enunciation tell them the sandwich, bread, cheese, sauce and never more than 3 other items... and nearly every time they turn around then turn back, "what bread?"
I'll repeat the sandwich and bread again, then wait.
By the end of the journey I've repeated myself several times, repeated each item several times, and walked them step-by-step through a menu sandwich with no modification.
That said, I eat Subway maybe once every 3-5 years, it is a lot of work to order there. Every other place I rarely have to repeat a 3rd time, and I order basic menu stuff because fastfood and quick lunch places are not fine gourmet specialty restaurants.

Subway is good when food safety is kept up, ie, just following protocol for dates, checking cooler temps and making sure it's functioning properly at all times, etc. But managers fall into traps of trying to eke out a better bonus by cutting corners and this is why most Subways suck. The bread-making routine is designed to be nearly foolproof but is easy to fuck up anyways for wagies and for slack ass managers. When I was there it was literally just make sure it's been thawing in the little locker in the walk-in for 8 hours, pull it to open air for 20 minutes, spritz with water (that bottle has to be changed on a schedule too), and then proof to 3/4 of baking size. Another step that's very easy to do but just as easy to neglect so these stores really need corporate to just go around periodically to keep everyone up to speed on the little details or else it all falls apart. Speaking of the proofer, it and all the other equipment there is ridiculously easy to maintain, but just neglect to wipe the debris out daily and you quickly get a nasty operation. Ours was a 24 hour operation and we were able to have fresh bread at all times since there was an overnight person to make bread for the morning shift, otherwise, they are allowed to have bread from the previous day to be used in the first couple hours of operation. That's the only time the bread "should" get away with not being fresh but again, many will try to cut corners here as well, and that's about the worst thing they can do. If they're diligent about making the bread right and throwing it away when it's expired then they won't suck.

My first day on the job one of the first people I served was this silly dude who worked in a deli. I got lucky to serve him cause he explained how he worked in a deli and he instructed me to put in the little bit of extra detail to put the meat exactly from end to end and even with the lettuce to be detailed enough to cover the bread

>> No.16204474

When everything's running how it's supposed to, it really is good and you can tell how happy the customers are too. I worked in a gas station 24 hour subway and I made it my mission while I was there to have a clean operation. Sometimes customers would tell me they wished Subway would hire me to go around and train people to make the sandwiches right. We had a nice environment going on where I worked, and I was usually the overnight guy, so I was able to get the cleanliness standard up just by busting my ass overnight. The manager was down-to-earth and just tried to point people in the right direction. When you get little douchebags trying to play hall monitor about only using 9.75" of paper towels per hand wash to get costs down, but let's tell Pedro to change the dates on the ham and roast beef when nobody's looking, neglect to train people to make sandwiches right and only the bare minimum cleaning is getting done.. you get an operation with no pride. It's so easy to do right but when you leave people to their devices you get what you get. I think where Subway went wrong is they let too many stores open, especially in gas stations, where their goal was to have Subway taste the same anywhere you go but they didn't stay on top of those stores to put out their standard of quality

Subway sucks because the bread is spongey with zero crustiness, and the meat is subpar and sitting for hours between paper. The employees may or may not wear gloves, reuse said gloves, all the while touching lettuce and dirty disgusting dollar bills with the same gloves. Dining there is sure to piss you off in some way, like asking for cucumber to be added and telling Habib there to add more when he lays a single transparent slice of cucumber on the roll and looks at you with a blank look of like anyone ever would want only a single slice.
Why go there?! Geesh, 15 better choice for nearly anyone, unless you're in an airport at 3am and it's the only thing open.

The problem is the quality of the ingredients being shit. The bread used to have that yoga mat shit in it, but even after they got rid of it, it tastes awful and stale. The bread is the worst part but usually the veg is as also wilted and slimy. It's edible if you're hungry and want a cheap fast food lunch that's a bit healthier than McDonald's, but that's it.
