A Florida man just wanted ketchup on his Philly cheesesteak sandwich at Subway. When he didn't get it, a confrontation with the sandwich maker ensued, leading to a 911 call.
Now-former Subway employee Lawrence Ordone told TV station WFTV he was working behind the counter at the sandwich restaurant in an Orlando Walmart on New Year's night, when a man ordered a Philly cheesesteak.
"He (the customer) wants ketchup on the Philly cheesesteak and I have never put -- we don't even have ketchup at Subway -- I've never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich," Ordone told WFTV.
The restaurant chain -- famed for its "$5 footlongs" and diet commercials with "Subway Guy" Jared Fogle -- does not offer ketchup, according to a menu on the Subway website. Only condiments like mustard, mayo, vinegar and oil are available.

Did he get fired or quit?
What a greedy corporation, that poor deprived citizen is certainly due a large settlement for his suffering.
Who ever heard of a restaurant that refuses to have ketchup?
I guess the founder of Subway must have had some early childhood problem.
Don’t tell anyone in Philly, but sliced ribeye and wiz on an Amorosa roll with nothing else but KETCHUP is pretty tasty. Oscar Madison said it best: “I like ketchup - it’s like tomato wine.”
That is a little strange. But, still, anyone who want ketchup on a Philly cheese steak ought to be taken out back by the dumpsters and fluffed up a bit.
The local donut shop here doesn’t have ketchup. I don’t know if they’d refuse it, though. Not that many people, at least here in these parts, find that ketchup improves donuts.
As Ben Franklin said, “Ya don’t put ketchup ona Philly”.
(He would’ve said it if he had a Philly)
He fled the scene, so I’m guessing he was fired.
I don’t understand why Subway can’t have ketchup, but they don’t, and that’s the way it has always been.
I’ve carried my own packets once or twice, but I’ve gotten used to not having ketchup on my subs.
I think he was fired.
You would think that they would at least have some ketchup packets.
The closest thing would be the tomato sauce for the meatball sub I guess.
” anyone who want ketchup on a Philly cheese steak ought to be taken out back by the dumpsters and fluffed up a bit.
Being a southern boy, I have never seen a Philly Cheese steak, and I have no desire to even try.
That being said, no one is going to tell me what and what not I can put on my food.
If you eat at my house, the steak will be medium rare and I will not serve A1 or ketchup.
Burly Detective: Come on, Harry. Take it easy.
Harry Callahan: Or this job, either. Having to wade through the scum of this city, being swept away by bigger and bigger waves of corruption, apathy and red tape. Nah, that doesn't bother me. But you know what does bother me?
Burly Detective: What?
Harry Callahan: You know what makes me really sick to my stomach?
Burly Detective: What?
Harry Callahan: Is watching you stuff your face with those hot dogs. Nobody, I mean NOBODY puts ketchup on a hot dog.
Ketchup with Lobster, you want Ketchup!
Who would put ketchup on hot dogs? I would. That said Subway does not offer ketchup at all. It is not McDonalds. (But then I never asked)
A Taiwanese woman told me that after seeing spaghetti on an American TV show, her family decided to try it. So they cooked noodles and covered them with ketchup.
Ketchup on a Hamburger, Mustard on a Hotdog, just as God intended.
