According to the Washington Post, while Chipotle has seen steady sales growth, Subway has seen its US sales fall 3% -- the most of any of the top fast-food chains -- and, for the first time in seven years, it dropped to the third best-selling fast-food chain. It also probably doesn't help that the man who represents the Subway diet is currently linked to a child porn case.
"What Americans see as healthy has evolved," the Post says, "Subway hasn't." You mean millennials aren't into ham, salami, and bologna sandwiches?!??? For its part, Subway has said that it will drop artificial ingredients from its menu by 2017, but only after chains like Taco Bell and Pizza Hut announced they were. Ugh, what a follower.
Now, just out of curiosity, has anyone concerned with eating healthy ever considered not eating fast food?
