Subway Not So Fresh

Apr 9, 2011 - Subway is one of the largest franchises in the entire world and I've known MANY people who've worked there. With that said, there are some things that go on in a few Subways that would make you stop eating their food completely. Nothing that doesn't go on in any other restaurant, but I wouldn't expect it from a healthy, fast food place. My main focus for this is the motto Eat Fresh. Okay, what's fresh about the things that are put on a Subway sandwich? Very little.

The tomatoes are usually pre-packaged and frozen (they're only fresh at a few Subways), the same for the majority of other vegetables and the bread is only 'fresh baked' after the syrup injected dough is prepared. Subway claims to be so healthy and great for you but they haven't done away with preservatives that are making more people fat, they just hide them better than most restaurants. The bread deteriorates at three times the rate of normal bread because of all the things that go into protecting the dough; so it can sit on the Subway shelves for long periods of time.

It seems to me that Subway should change it's motto to Somewhat Fresh or As Fresh As We Make It or even, Freshly Packaged, Frozen, And Thawed. I do know of a few Subways who follow protocol and try their best to cut and prepare the food themselves, but honestly, in a franchise with mass production every day, you can't expect too much. It's probably better for you than a McDonald's cheeseburger, but if you're craving something truly fresh, then you're better off making it at home by yourself.

User19121 said: I have worked at subway for over 11 years and am shocked and appalled by such blatant untruths. Subway vegetables have never been and will never be frozen as freezing fresh vegetables is impossible! Someone needs to get the facts straight before spreading such potentially libellous lies.

User19195 replied to User19121 : I work at a Subway in Washington state... all of the meats, breads, fruits, & veggies are frozen... the whole reason I am replying to you right now is because I typed "why is Subways's motto "Eat Fresh" when everything is frozen?" on the search engine & this was the first link. It seems your Subway has fresh food... that's good. At least some stores follow their motto!!

jukenjohnny said: whatever butt breath wrote the article about subway is totally wrong. there are no frozen vegetables delivered or we won't take them. seriously this writer really needs to do some more research. sounds like they are a drama queen who justs sits on his lazy ass and listens to poor reports from poor employees who couldn't hold a job regardless of where they work.

Devlin replied to jukenjohnny : I've actually gotten frozen peppers and onions on my sandwich.. so grow up "butt breath".. it says it's not every store.. it's all about the people running it.. and considering most of them barely passed high school, why is anybody surprised..

psh replied to jukenjohnny : devlin, the cold case can sometimes go to a lower temperature making them frosty, the point of pre freezing everything is insane, and everything would spoil within a matter of minutes. Oh and don't try to talk down to the people who work there, at least it's not a mcdonalds where they'd hawk one on your burger for giving them a dirty look.

User18028 said: Agreed about the freezing comments. This part is pretty obvious. Anyone who has tired to freeze stuff like tomatoes and cucumbers will know they will not survive due to their high water content. They would look shriveled and completely destroyed.

SUBWAY Regional Manager said: No vegetables at SUBWAY, including tomatoes, have ever arrived frozen. The bread dough is made in bakeries and frozen for shipment to stores. It must be frozen because (1) it doesn't contain preservatives and (2) the dough would rise in a matter of an hour if it were left at room temperature. We go through a process of retarding (thawing), then preparing (seasoning and scoring), proofing, and finally baking. Any bread leftover from the previous day is always discarded by 11AM, and usually sooner, as soon as fresh bread has been baked. We freshly slice vegetables in the store several times daily, including tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and green peppers. The lettuce is pre-shredded and the spinach requires no preparation. The jalapenos, banana peppers, pickles and olives come brine-packed (that is the only way those vegetables are available). The turkey, ham, cold cut meats, pepperoni and salami are refrigerated after only necessary processing, and the roast beef is the highest quality meat on our menu -- it is naturally sliced and kept without loads of preservatives (unlike some other sandwich shops). The cheeses are also natural (except American). The provolone, cheddar, swiss, shredded monterrey-cheddar, shredded mozzarella and pepper jack cheeses (availability depends upon regional selections) are natural.

Worker! said: I work at Subway and half the things listed above are wrong no veggies are frozen at all! Bread is fresh and at the best quality! Be in the shoes of a subway person for a day it's not as easy as it looks! Customers being over-picky and wanting four handfuls of onion when there only suppose to get 14g is tough
