World Sandwich Day, November 3
Restaurant Chain Also Feeding the Hungry on This Special Day
Fort Myers/Naples, FL – Stopping by your local Fort Myers/Naples area SUBWAY® this Friday, November 3, will not only get you a free sandwich, but also will help feed the hungry. Subway® is taking the traditional National Sandwich Day global with World Sandwich Day, inviting customers to join its “Live Feed” by enjoying a special offer that will help fight hunger around the world.
All 117 local Fort Myers/Naples area SUBWAY® restaurants are offering an incredible one-day special. Customers who buy a sandwich and 30 oz. drink not only get a free sandwich of equal or lesser value; they also get the satisfaction of knowing the restaurant is donating a meal* to Feeding America® for each purchase.
“Last year, our customers helped us make history with the largest single-day donation to Feeding America in its existence – 11 million meals,” said Subway® President and CEO Suzanne Greco. “This year’s unprecedented initiative will include thousands of Subway® restaurants around the globe. We’re excited to bring together our customers, franchisees and communities to inspire global action around hunger.”
In the U.S., one out of eight people struggle with hunger, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). That means 41 million people across the country, including nearly 13 million children and more than five million seniors don’t have enough to eat. Subway® and Feeding America® are addressing this serious issue for the second consecutive year to help fight hunger in the U.S.
“Hunger affects millions of individuals and families in communities across America,” said Feeding America® CEO Diana Aviv. “We are proud to continue our partnership with Subway® to help people who may not know where they will find their next meal.”
Subway® offers a fresh alternative to traditional fast food, serving seven million made-to-order sandwiches a day. Guests choose from 37 million combinations of quality proteins, fresh vegetables, and bread baked daily. The world’s largest restaurant chain serves nutritious and delicious sandwiches, soups, and salads at more than 44,000 restaurants in 113 countries. The Subway® experience is also delivered online at www.Subway.com; and through the Subway® App, available in select markets at the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Founded by then 17-year-old Fred DeLuca and family friend Dr. Peter Buck more than 52 years ago, Subway® is still a family-owned business today, working with more than 21,000 dedicated franchisees in communities around the world.
