No $5 Footlongs Due to $10 Minimum Wage

BY:

Subway’s signature $5 foot-long sandwich is no more in San Francisco due to the high cost of doing business and the city’s rising minimum wage.

NBC in the Bay Area reports:

The sandwich-making chain stopped selling the five-dollar footlongs in San Francisco due to the “high cost of doing business,” according to SF Weekly.

Signs posted at Subway sandwich shops sadly inform San Francisco patrons — we hear Willie Brown is a big fan — that “all SUBWAY Restaurants in SF County DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN Subway National $5.00 Promotions,” according to the newspaper…

Apparently, the city’s new minimum wage, raised to $10.24 as of Jan. 1, make $5 footlongs an impossible business model.
