SUBWAY is giving all of its subs an enormous transformation, with a new menu being trialled across its restaurants in the usa. The new trial is a significant shake-up for the restaurant chain, with new cheeses including crumbled feta, natural cheddar and mozzarella replacing processed cheese options.
New proteins including authentic streaky bacon, carved turkey and leg ham, rustic chicken as well as a new and improved diced steak, made from 100 % Australian beef are also available. Subway menu also has made a vegan sub for the first time, with smashed falafel to meet the requirements of the on the plant-based diet.
Gluten-free wraps and rye bread having an ancient grain topping are also available with new salads. The restaurant chain has additionally expanded its selection of sauces to provide habanero hot sauce, blue cheese dressing, pesto mayo, smoky barbecue sauce, tzatziki, seeded mustard, cranberry relish and tomato chutney. New menu items being made also have: buffalo chicken with blue cheese dressing; Greek lamb with tzatziki; Mediterranean chicken with pesto mayo; smashed falafel with tzatziki, and turkey and bacon with cranberry.
However the axing of a few of Subway’s popular ingredients have recently sparked a social networking backlash from customers. Subway fans have flooded the company’s Facebook page with complaints about the removal of carrots, old English cheese and pickles. One person wrote: “Found out today is the last day for carrot and old English cheese and pickles already are gone. Today is my last subway meal RIP Subway.”
Another wrote: “I don’t understand why you would probably eliminate carrots! Most kids love carrot inside their subway and once your son or daughter will only consume a cheese & carrot subway (still buy a complete price sub with only two fillings) it’s very disappointing. I’m all for brand new menus but seriously losing a staple like carrot is ridiculous! Keep the basics for the children so gynqlt adults can try the new menu. You’ll lose plenty of families, just saying!”
Other Subway fans were pleased with a number of the new additions, but agreed that others should stay. On fan posted: “Just tried your brand new trial menu at your stalls for my usual Monday sub. How dare you take away my old English and pickles. They’re the very first two essential ingredients in any sub. And don’t be touching the chipotle. My god, the chipotle stays. PS: Nice touch on the habanero sauce and feta. Classy.”
Subway director of advertising Kate Brody said the chain was paying close awareness of customer comments. “We’ve discovered that some guests are super picky regarding their pickles. Or are crazy crazy about carrot,” she said.
“We haven’t made any decisions yet which ingredients will win their spot in our restaurants – actually, we’ll be holding a poll on Facebook to find out the reaction – and we’re monitoring all feedback, whether in-restaurant or in the Facebook community through the trial. We’re just as excited to see the outcomes as our guests.
“We’re seeking as much feedback as you can to ensure that when we add or remove any ingredients, we know exactly how our loyal guests feel about it, and any future menu developments are guided by what our guests are telling us.” She stated that the newest menu items were Subway’s way of making their menu more modern. “We know American palates and preferences have changed over time, and we’re excited to hear straight from our guests so we can get a great balance involving the www.allfoodmenuprices.org/www-tellsubway-com-survey-coupons, as well as on-trend, innovative flavours,” she said
