No Subway $5 Footlongs In SF, ‘Cost of Doing Business’ Too High

♫ Five…
♫ Five dollar…
♫ Five dollar Footlongs…

So goes the catchy Subway sandwich TV ditty. Everywhere, that is, except the City by the Bay. The high cost of doing business in San Francisco means you will have to fork over more for a Footlong.

Signs posted at Subway sandwich shops in San Francisco inform patrons:

“SUBWAY Restaurants in SF County DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN Subway National $5.00 Promotions”

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

    $5 for a foot long sub is very cheap. I probably couldn’t one, buy the ingredients and eat it myself for that price. Gas prices have caused rapid consumer inflation. Although, Mr. Obama seems to think we are doing fine. I guess if you live inside the bubble you don’t see people struggling.

    I was in San Francisco a few years ago and bought the Sunday paper.

    The price of real estate is ridiculously expensive. More like London or Tokyo. I don’t understand how people or why people pay $1.5 million for a tiny 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house. Pretty city but too steep for my pocketbook.

    Maybe I’m alone on this one but, I don’t really like Subway. Our local supermarket deli makes much better sandwiches. Fresher bread and vegetables. Plus, the meat and cheese tastes better.

    I’m with you, David. Subway is nasty. Not worth .05 cents. Certainly not worth $5.00.

    The Italian Meatball is good. The rest of their menu is sucky. Just my opinion.
