Say goodbye to Subway’s catchy “$5 footlong” jingle.
The price of lunch just went up.
From the looks at the dining room at local Subway in West Palm Beach, the price increase makes little difference. On Friday, each of the seven tables at the store on 522 Belvedere Road were filled and the line to order was five people deep — including many repeat customers.
“If you give good customer service, you’ll win the customer,” said manager Fawad Arif, who has run the store for 15 years.
Twitter expressed outrage, as it is prone to do. But customers weren’t deterred.
“It’s still a good deal,” said Rommel Lopez of West Palm Beach. “They always have specials here. Other places, it’s $8 for a footlong.”
