6 inch Subway meat amounts: (we serve 6 inch sandwiches, just double the amount for a 12 inch)

Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef = 2 oz.
Tuna, Seafood = 2.5 oz.
Roasted Chicken, Chicken Strips = 2.5 oz.

Always good to know what the competition is doing…. :p

LMAO :sohappy:

Yeah, I was surprised to find out that we put more meat on our 3 inch half sandwich than they do their 6 inch.

But that lets us say - 2.5 times the amount of meat of the leading sandwich maker :banana:

There are no Quiznos within a 5 mile radius of us...yet

I agree Gordon, and also, some of the franchisees are cutting back on the amounts too. The one near my Walmart uses a very small scoop for the seafood mix. The one near home, in my small town, uses a bigger one. Perhaps Subway needs to check up on that.

Thanks for the input! Its great to hear so little meat is being used. We use 4oz of high quality meat on our deli sandwiches. The best part about that is all are under 5 bucks!

Just a thought - have you looked into using a product that consumers know? Something like Boar's Head? It could be a great way to differentiate yourself from the competition. Plus...the manufacturer is already doing a great job marketing for you. I know I'd spend $1-2 more for a sandwich for better quality. The problem with Subway is definitely the meat - it looks processed.
