The current Eat Fresh Refresh campaign by Subway has been going well and aims to restore its reputation for high-quality cuisine.
According to Restaurant Business, the chain recently announced that it would install mechanical meat slicers at all 22,000 of its sites over the course of a year.
The business will save money by giving up precut meat, but it will also be able to reduce food prices by offering a wider selection of whole meats.
It enables us to collaborate with different providers, said Haynes. "Some [food cost] savings have been eroded by inflation, but we should still see some savings in food expenses for franchisees without increasing labor,"
The brand-new slicers are totally automatic and are produced by the German business Bizerba. In contrast to a traditional deli, staff only need to insert the meat and press a button.
By eliminating customization from its menu in July—something the brand has long been linked with—the sandwich business added to this ongoing endeavor.
The sandwich franchise has also hinted at bringing back a few previous favorites that were dropped following the menu revamp. According to Haynes, the BMT, Chicken Teriyaki, and Tuna subs might return.
