NEW YORK, - The U.S. restaurant chain Subway said this week its Footlong brand is the name of a sandwich line, not a guarantee each sandwich is a foot long.
The chain said on its Australian Facebook page there is no guarantee each footlong sub would measure 12 inches.
"Subway Footlong is a registered trademark as a descriptive name for the sub sold in Subway Restaurants and not intended to be a measurement of length," the statement said.
ABC News said a tempest started brewing when an Australian teenager went online to state he had measured a sandwich he had purchased at Subway and found it to be 11 inches in length.
The revelation led the New York Post to confirm not-quite foot-longs were being sold in the Big Apple.
Subway told ABC it strives for a 12-inch bun but the vagaries of commercial baking make it difficult to guarantee the results 100 percent of the time.
11 is the new 12 or as George Castanza said shrinkage

That's a very cute graphic. Did you create that?
That’s what ‘he said’.
The saucy ladies?
You'll wind up with at least 12" of baked bread if you overcompensate on the dough (shoot for 13-14").
No wonder your 12th sub is free, you've already paid for it!
Re: cheese slice question
For the same damn reason that they put the meat on the TOP of the sandwich and the TOPPINGS on the bottom (unless you want to eat your sandwich upside down).
Oh....you’re such a brat! One of the few things that I truly miss from Wally World is Rosa’s and Liuzzi’s cheese in North Haven. Not enough though to make me want to move back....LOL
Why Subway Is “The Biggest Problem In Franchising” That’s the assessment of a congressional staffer who studied the industry. Founder Fred DeLuca’s unique approach to the sandwich business has brought him staggering wealth—and big troubles.
Oh yes....I do pronounce it correctly.....my last name ends in a vowel......LOL Love them both freshly made....yum!
