“Eat Fresh? Uhhh maybe not”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Ok so we all know subway right? Eat Fresh right? Well maybe not...

So subway are well known for saying their food is fresh and so on and so forth, the interesting thing is, all their food is shipped in - I do not think they actually source anything locally.

For example - their "poached" eggs are precooked, frozen and shipped from interstate. Once reheated they look suspiciously like hockey pucks. Their pre-grated carrot, cant say I have had fresh carrot that looks or tastes like that before. Their "chicken" fillets....exactly what are those things as they cant be real chicken.

On a positive note - they do bake their own bread instore which is good (scared to think what goes in it though) and their prices are good value given you do get a substantial feed.

Most times their staff are new (very high staff turnover) and bad at their jobs. 9/10 staff cant even cut the sub in half without either destroying it or not cutting it all the way through so you need to tear it yourself.

Overall, subway is a brand with a lot of promise and success - unfortunately what was a fresh idea 10-15 years ago really does'nt cut it anymore.
