The first wave of television spots feature Coach Belichick helping a surprised fan make smart lunch and fashion choices, and the Watt brothers enjoying footlongs from their hometown Subway shop.

“When Subway reached out, shared the Footlong Season campaign objectives and the ideas for the commercial, I decided the timing was right to have some fun and enjoy some sandwiches,” said Coach Bill Belichick.

To kick off Footlong Season, Subway is launching its fan-favorite Buy 2 Footlongs, Get 1 Free* Deal, which can be redeemed online, through the Subway App, or in-restaurant.

Subway Restaurants and Feeding America Partner To Provide 15 Million Meals



Subway Restaurants and Feeding America Partner To Provide 15 Million Meals

For every Footlong purchased, Subway will donate a meal to Feeding America

Milford, CT  (Restaurant News Release)  For more than 50 years, Subway® restaurants have been open to serve guests and communities. Now, during this unprecedented time, Subway remains committed to not only providing nutritious meals but getting them to those who need it the most. Subway and Feeding America® are teaming up to provide up to 15 million meals* to feed people in need across the country. With the purchase of every Footlong through April 30 for takeout, catering and delivery, Subway will provide a meal* to Feeding America.

With Feeding America predicting food banks needing an additional estimated $1.4 billion over the next six months to feed people in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Subway and its guests are lending their support by simply ordering their favorite Footlong from participating restaurants through the Subway app, on order.subway.com or by visiting Subway.com to find their closest restaurant offering takeout.

“Subway has always been a part of the community to provide delicious subs and a helping hand – and we plan to continue to do just that during this time of hardship,” said Subway’s North America President, Trevor Haynes. “From keeping our restaurants open and safe, to providing better-for-you food options, to our Franchise Owners dedicating their time and donating food, Subway is open to serve. And, we are proud to once again partner with Feeding America to help make sure our neighbors are getting the nutritious meals they need and deserve.”

As of December 2019, the Feeding America network of food banks served about 40 million people a year. It has seen a drastic uptick in need, an unprecedented increase of 17 million people, who will rely on food banks during this uncertain time. This has put an unexpected burden on the Feeding America network, and despite increased support, it still doesn’t have all of the resources it needs to meet demands. As a long-standing supporter of Feeding America, Subway wants to lend its support in helping to alleviate some of this need, using the community reach of its over 24,000 restaurants nationwide to help feed millions of Americans in these uncertain times.

“Feeding America network food banks have seen an unprecedented increase in need for food assistance across the communities they serve,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. “Subway’s donation of 15 million meals will help ease the burden felt by our neighbors struggling with hunger so they can instead focus on navigating this difficult time with their families.”

Along with keeping restaurants open and ready to serve, Subway Franchise Owners across the globe have stepped up in big ways in their local communities donating meals to those on the frontlines including healthcare workers and first responders, as well as donating meals to children who normally rely on school lunches.

Subway has also taken steps in restaurant to ensure a safe experience, including increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing, continued reinforcement of existing health and food safety protocols and moving to a takeout and delivery-only model.

When You Do Good, Good Things Happen This World Sandwich DayMilford, CT  (Restaurant News Release)  Subway® restaurant fans, rejoice! World Sandwich Day is back. Today, Subway is celebrating the holiday with our fourth consecutive year of partnering with Feeding America® to give back to our communities, showing that when you do good things, good things happen.

On November 3, sandwich lovers celebrate the birth of sandwich inventor John Monatgu of Sandwich in England by enjoying their favorite sandwiches. This November 3 through November 9, Subway guests are also invited to do good simply by ordering a sandwich online. For every purchase made on Subway.com and the Subway App, Subway will help provide a meal* to Feeding America. By doing good this World Sandwich Day, Subway guests across the country will have the opportunity to directly contribute to hunger relief efforts in the United States.

Every day, millions of children and adults do not have access to quality meals. Many are forced to make tough decisions between buying food and other necessities such as paying medical bills, rent or transportation. For the fourth consecutive year, Subway is taking a stand against hunger on World Sandwich Day and teaming up with Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization, to encourage guests to make a difference in their communities while ordering their favorite meal online.

“No one should ever struggle to find their next meal, but sadly one in nine of our neighbors do. Subway and our Franchise Owners are committed to helping our neighbors in need get access to nutritious food,” said Victor Lamberti, Subway’s Manager of Community Engagement. “And, we invite our guests to join us in doing good in our community.”

Subway Restaurants Launch Latest Mouth-Watering, Culinary Innovation with NEW! Naturally Pit-Smoked Brisket Sandwich

“Our naturally pit-smoked brisket is the real deal. We collaborated with some of the most talented pit masters in the country to create a one-of-a-kind taste experience that features the unmistakable flavor that comes from using real smoke and freshly baked bread. It’s a combination that simply can’t be beat,” said Len Van Popering, Subway’s Chief Brand and Innovation Officer.

To put its new sandwich to the test, the brand traveled to a city known for its pit-smoking – Austin, Texas. Once there, Subway disguised themselves as Monty’s Smokehouse and placed the new sandwich in front of pit-smoke devotees. Fans of Monty’s pit-smoked brisket were overwhelmed with shock and delight when they learned they could get the delicious sandwich at participating Subway restaurants across the country. You need to see it to believe it – watch Subway’s Naturally Pit-Smoked Brisket video here.


Starting September 5 and for a limited time only, participating Subway restaurants across the country will be serving the delicious sandwich, so get it while you can and savor each bite. For more information and to join the conversation, visit Subway.com and SubCulture®.

Subway Restaurants and Beyond Meat Unveil its Strategic Culinary Partnership and the Beyond Meatball Marinara



Subway Restaurants and Beyond Meat Unveil its Strategic Culinary Partnership and the Beyond Meatball Marinara

Milford, CT  (Restaurant News Release)  Subway® fans know they can customize their favorite sub to fit any lifestyle and now guests have even more options. Today, Subway unveils a new culinary innovation partnership with Beyond Meat® to test exclusive plant-based protein options. Starting this September and for a limited time only, Subway restaurants will test the Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub in 685 participating restaurants in Canada and the U.S.

The strategic collaboration with Beyond Meat reflects Subway’s continued culinary innovation journey to offer guests even more best-in-class food experiences that they can only find at Subway restaurants. In the past month, Subway has announced exclusive partnerships to offer the first-ever Halo Top hand-spun milkshakes and fresh baked King’s Hawaiian® bread only at Subway. The unique partnership with Beyond Meat brings together dedicated culinary teams from both brands to explore new plant-based protein offerings, starting with the Beyond Meatball™ Marinara.

Now guests will have the opportunity to try the new Beyond Meatball™ Marinara, which takes its inspiration from the brand’s classic sandwich but with a plant-based twist. The sub is drenched in our irresistible marinara sauce, Provolone cheese, sprinkled with grated parmesan cheese and perfectly toasted, but features the first-ever Beyond Meatball™ created just for Subway. The sub offers the same mouthwatering flavor as Subway’s traditional meatball sub and is packed with protein – 24 grams per six-inch sub.

Seventy percent of meat-eaters substitute a non-meat protein in a meal at least once a week, according to researchers, the NPD Group. Subway fans in North America can create more than 1 billion plant-forward sandwich, flatbread, and Signature Wrap combinations. With the addition of the Beyond Meatball™, Subway guests will now have 2 billion options!

“Subway appeals to so many fans because we truly offer something for everyone. Our guests want to feel good about what they eat and they also want to indulge in new flavors. With our new plant-based Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub, we are giving them the best of both worlds. And, we are particularly excited about debuting a co-developed product that can’t be found anywhere else: the Beyond Meatball™ made just for Subway,” says Len Van Popering, Subway’s Chief Brand and Innovation Officer.

“We’re excited to partner with Subway and are grateful that the menu team through to senior management has entrusted us as their innovation partner to deliver delicious plant-based proteins to their guests. We look forward to a long-term partnership with Subway as we together serve and delight existing and new fans of this iconic chain,” says Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat Founder & CEO.

Emma Binson, from Tucson, Arizona, who tied for second, said the atmosphere – which included loud music, loud fans, being filmed and making a sandwich on stage while judges are watching you – was very hectic.

“It’s crazy, but you have to go up there and get it done; just like any other day,” Emma said.

This year, Sara and Emma competed against Sandwich Artists™ from Canada, France, Germany, Singapore, South Korea, the U.K., and U.S. With a score of 49.8, Sara won the Global Sub Jammers trophy and the $6,000 cash prize.

“Every day Subway Sandwich Artists around the world create millions of customized sandwiches, wraps and salads with our guests and their hard work deserves to be recognized,” said Hashemi, who had 15 Sandwich Artists™ from his seven restaurants compete, including the third and fourth place winners. “My team loved being at the convention to see the true global scope of Subway.  We used the time together to learn, improve and, most importantly, to bond as a team. The time together at the convention really helped energize us to take our restaurants to the next level.”

Subway partners with Cornell University Sustainable Global Enterprise Immersion Program to provide hands-on experience to M.B.A. students

Subway Taps Cornell Graduate Students to Help Further Reduce Restaurant WasteMilford, CT  (Restaurant News Release)  Subway® restaurants today announced its partnership with Cornell University’s M.B.A. program. The partnership brings innovative thinking to help further the brand’s commitment to reduce waste across the nation’s largest network of restaurants from sustainability-minded business students.

Students from Cornell’s graduate M.B.A. Sustainable Global Enterprise (SGE) Immersion Program work on multidisciplinary teams to apply their knowledge to Corporate or NGO-sponsored projects focused on social and environmental issues. For Subway, the students’ assignment is to develop recommendations to further reduce waste at the restaurant level across a network of more than 24,000 independently owned restaurants in the United States – all with varying local waste removal contracts, as well as differing state and local guidelines.

“Partnering with Cornell University’s SGE Immersion Program allows us to tap into the next generation of business and sustainability leaders who will give us new insights and ideas for continuing to reduce waste at the restaurant level,” said John Scott, Vice President Quality and Sustainability for Subway® restaurants. “This is an opportunity for these Cornell students and Subway to learn from each other while finding a way to improve communities,” Scott said. “For the students, it’s a chance to see the challenges and opportunities we face as a global company first hand and explore ways to address those challenges. And for Subway, we’re thrilled to get a fresh and unique perspective from the students to help us find a different way to lighten our environmental footprint.”

Working with Subway, students have immersed themselves in the brand’s sustainability efforts, while working to address one of the world’s most pressing concerns – waste reduction. The four-student Cornell team visited Subway restaurants to review current practices in front and back of house operations, surveyed more than 2,000 Franchise Owners on current waste management efforts and conducted extensive industry research.

Cornell SGE Immersion Program Director Professor Mark Milstein said, “Sustainability is a context for sharpening management decision-making skills, and businesses are in a unique position to address the world’s most pressing problems. The SGE Immersion Program emphasizes the application of creativity, innovation and critical thinking to solve real business and sustainability problems. Immersing themselves in a business challenge like this one allows our M.B.A. students to hone those skills, while they offer a tremendous resource to companies like Subway.”

Cornell M.B.A. candidate Pamela Graybeal, of Chadds Ford, PA, said, “This has been a great way for both parties to learn from one another. The complexity of waste management infrastructure across the U.S. has such a large impact on how a company like Subway–with its expansive network of store locations–can develop a waste management plan that works for all.”

“After the Cornell students present their findings, we will thoroughly review their report and a project team will evaluate the feasibility of implementing their recommendations,” said Andrea Seek, Director of Global Sustainability for Subway. “We know we will all be learning from this effort and are excited to use the students’ work as a catalyst to drive future change.”
