For the fourth consecutive year, SUBWAYrestaurants, the world’s largest restaurant brand, emerged as the mega chain leader in three categories – “Healthy Options,” “Most Popular” and “Top Service” – according to the recently released 2012 Zagat Fast-Food Survey. Zagat Survey is the world’s leading provider of consumer survey-based information on Where to Eat, Drink, Stay and Play Worldwide.
“Four consecutive years of being #1 in key Zagat’s ratings is an accomplishment our entire system can celebrate with pride. From our sandwich artists on the front lines to the many dedicated team members who ensure that consumers have an abundance of fresh selections, everyone shares in this winning streak,” said Tony Pace, Chief Marketing Officer, SUBWAY Franchise World Headquarters.
Earlier this year, the brand earned the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Meal Certification nutritional criteria, which enables the brand to include the iconic Heart-Check logo on SUBWAY restaurant menus nationwide. This important meal certification from the American Heart Association, the nation’s most recognized and trusted authority on heart health, comes after a nearly 12 year relationship and is a reflection of SUBWAY restaurants’ relentless drive to continuously improve its products and be a trailblazer in the quick serve restaurant category by offering fans better-for-you options that do not sacrifice taste or variety.
Since first promoting the healthier aspects of its menu in the mid-1990s, the brand has continued to make choosing a healthier meal easier for adults and children. Today, SUBWAY FRESH FIT meal choices feature 9 sandwiches under 6 grams of fat and provide low fat and low saturated fat alternatives with customizable sandwich combinations, servings of vegetables, apples slices, yogurt, or Baked! LAY’S Potato Crisps, and a selection of low-fat milk, diet soda, or bottled water beverages.
