A “Footlong” sandwich should be a foot long. It’s a novel idea, and one that, thanks to a recent legal settlement, Subway is going to start taking to heart.
According to Nation’s Restaurant News, for the past two years, the world’s largest sandwich chain has been working to settle a number of lawsuits claiming that their “footlong” and six-inch subs didn’t always meet their advertised length. Yesterday, the company announced they had come to an agreement, choosing to change restaurant practices in lieu of handing out a mass class-action payment to customers.
Don’t worry, though; the lawyers still will get paid up to $525,000 for all their hard work fighting for sandwich justice.
