Man questions the veracity of Subway ‘meal deal’ claims
Office workers David Phillips, of Kilburn London, plunged the American fast food chain Subway into chaos on Monday afternoon he pointed out that their £3 lunch time ‘meal deal’ was in actual fact a sham. Mr Phillips revealed to other diners that Subway’s claimed ‘meal deal’ was in actual fact merely a sandwich and drink, and thus lacking the necessary packed of crisps/fruit option to constitute an actual ‘meal deal’. News of the revelation caused Subway’s shares on the Nasdaq to plummet by almost 8 points, as canny UK office workers vowed to avoid Subway due to their negligence over the ‘meal deal’ crisps options, opting instead for the Tesco meal deal option – which does include crisps/fruit option.
Mr Phillips remarked: “I didn’t want this to happen, but a sandwich and a bottle of water, or a fountain drink – that nobody wants anyway because they’re inconvenient – is not a meal deal. Not on my watch. Not now. Not ever” he continued, “also not only am I questioning the veracity of Subway’s ‘meal deal’ claims, but also why regardless of what filling you get for Subway, do they always taste the same?’.
A subway spokesperson: “Crisps are an optional extra and can be purchased for a very reasonable 69p.”
