Jason Leslie decided to do his own experiment and found out that he was getting less than advertised, five percent less in exact.
Leslie filed a class action suit on Wednesday with his lawyer Gerald A. Marks of Marks & Klein in Red Bank. According to the interview with Leslie, he has eaten 50 Subway sandwiches per year for 14 years and that he felt cheated by the restaurant. No reports yet on how much Leslie is asking for the class action suit.
Aside from Leslie, a man from Chicago, Nguyen Buren joins the ranks of angry Subway customers. His measurement for the Subway foot long is only 11 inches from the Subway restaurant near his North Side home. He is seeking $5 million from the sandwich company.
Two men from New Jersey also filed the same class action suit. Lawyers from the plaintiffs, Stephen DeNittis said he is also preparing to file a similar suit in Pennsylvania.
Subway has released this statement:
"We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve. Our commitment remains steadfast to ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches."
Subway is a billion dollar company with $16.2 billion revenue in 2010. It has a total of 38,181 restaurants in 99 countries.
Will you still eat at Subway? For me, of course!
